Introducing Light Reading Network X Americas

The era of Big 5G is alive and well as North American network operators continue to reduce their dependence on 3G and 4G networks and search for payback for the billions spent to deliver faster speeds, lower latency, and greater capacity in our mobile networks.

Meanwhile, fiber and FWA rollouts continue at pace, and service providers continue the transition to cloud-based, AI-supported networks and services, promising to transform the North American telco landscape.

At Light Reading Network X Americas, we look forward to exploring the latest opportunities and overcoming the roadblocks to a hyperconnected, fiber-fueled future as the most innovative network operators and technology leaders gather to exchange ideas in this unique forum.

Like our preceding event series, we look forward to the spirited discussions about ultra-advanced technologies like generative AI and quantum security, while addressing how networks, ways-of-working and new service creation is changing how service providers operate. As network operators learn from their global peers and local partners they can plan their next steps toward offering higher-margin services on lower-cost networks.
