Sept. 2, 2022

Transformative Fixed & Mobile Network Solutions, Education and Inspiration Delivered at the Colorado Convention Center, August 24-25, 2022.

ICT/Telecom network professionals descended on ISE EXPO 2022 at the Colorado Convention Center to see, touch and demo innovative technological solutions that transform fixed and mobile networks for the future. More than 170 exhibits, 19 seminars, five keynote presentations, Women in Telecom (WIT) panel, Demo Zone, a golf outing, and non-stop networking opportunities attracted decision-makers and purchasing influencers from across the industry.

The opening keynote presentation by Ken Paker, SVP of Information and Network Technologies and Chief Technology Officer, TDS Telecom, was titled “Fiber Everywhere: Transforming the Way We Build Fiber Networks.” Attendees filled the Mile High Ballroom to capacity to hear Paker’s insights. 

After his experience on-site, Paker shared, “The construction industry, including building fiber networks, is ripe for digital transformation to speed up the build interval and reduce costs. TDS Telecom wants to push in that direction. Industry events like this one provide a terrific opportunity for discussing the ‘next up’ technology and we believe digital transformation of constructing fiber networks is the next important thing.” 

Thursday’s Tech Talks featured leaders from AT&T, Consolidated Communications, NTCA – the Rural Broadband Association, and TDS Telecom. Topics included: FTTx best practices, employee upskilling, the urgency for rural connectivity, and leveraging AI/ML for customer and field success.

Credible and objective educational offerings delivered on their promises as well. Five of the highly attended seminars included:

  • Passive Optical Network - Evolution and Benefits 
  • Novel Approaches to Primarily Rural and Municipal Fiber Networks 
  • Fiber Technology & Industry Trends
  • Middle Mile Matters
  • Training: The Path to Rapid Fiber Deployment and Workforce Engagement 

Professional networking opportunities ranged from a sold-out golf event to an exhibit hall happy hour and off-site exhibitor receptions embracing the Colorado outdoors. Janice Oliva, Publisher ISE Magazine and ISE EXPO, summed up the event’s success. “The show floor was busy; conversations on and off the floor were meaningful. Our exhibitors came away with high-quality leads and attendees learned strategies to advance their careers.” 

Sue Ralston, VP Technology Events, Endeavor Business Media, concluded, “The events team at Endeavor Business Media is thrilled to wrap ISE EXPO into its strong event portfolio. We are excited to build upon the success of the show in Kansas City, Missouri, August 29-31, 2023. The event is already gaining traction with 56% of the show floor sold and Brightspeed’s three founders announcing their keynote presentation, “A Fiber-Side Chat”.
