About Metro Connect USA 2012
2012 promises to be another exciting year in the US domestic metro wholesale market. Another wave of consolidation is expected to sweep the market, backed up by continued bullish performance, but how will this market contraction affect the remaining players?
Metro company valuations are changing, and as the dark fiber and fiber debt markets adapt, which business component will give you the best ROI?
The booming consumer technology, cloud, tablet and smart phone markets across the US are driving the constant demand for increased bandwidth. This has been supported by a fiber explosion as companies build networks (and data centers) to match demand – but how far have they gotten? What ROIs can be expected in T2 and T3 markets? And what are the bandwidth drivers of the future?
The press has been full of announcements surrounding the launch of new LTE networks, but wireless backhaul and fiber-to-the-tower remain an issue and what will happen when the land grab finishes?
Price compression echoes across the market, but how can a company protect its margins? Does the new class of “super carrier” threaten regional players or help to rationalize the market?
Join 350+ metro industry executives to listen to 50 c-level speakers at the 11th Annual Metro Connect USA 2012 (28 and 29 Feb., Miami) in a series of strategic panel sessions discussing these issues and more. For more information, or to register for the conference, visit:
