A must-attend event for strategic business services development
About the Event
Now entering its 13th year, Cable Next-Gen Business Strategies (formerly "The Future of Cable Business Services") is the premier independent conference focusing on the cable industry's continuing efforts in the commercial services space. This popular one-day event delves into the latest technological, operational and strategic moves by cable operators to carve out more of the booming $150 billion US commercial market. More specifically, the event explores cable's growing efforts to expand into the enterprise market and new vertical sectors; examines the tech, operational, financial and competitive hurdles that could hamper further growth; and addresses how those hurdles can be overcome.
In a series of keynote presentations, discussion panels, fireside chats and tech workshops, CNGBS will tackle such hot topics as cable's pursuit of the enterprise market, the employee and customer mobility challenge, virtualizing commercial services and functions, leveraging DOCSIS 3.1 and fiber technologies, emerging services like SD-WAN, network security obstacles, new sales outlets, and wireless offerings for businesses.
