Light Reading Network X Americas
May 21-23, 2024
Irving Convention Center at Las ColinasDallas, Texas

Discover the future of North America’s mobile, fiber and cable sectors

5G is expanding beyond mobile, and everyone is invited

The era of 5G is alive and well. 

North American network operators continue to reduce their dependence on 3G and 4G networks, while searching to monetize the billions invested in their network infrastructure to deliver faster speeds, lower latency, and greater capacity on mobile networks.  

However – industry concerns are now moving beyond 5G and this event has evolved to reflect the changing needs, and concerns, of North American telecoms, including the current focus on broadband expansion in the US and Canada.  

Light Reading Network X Americas will not only address the next stages of mobile deployment, and the latest news on the telco to techco transformation. This year, we will also bring you valuable insights on fixed networks in North America, from BEAD and BABA through to fixed wireless access and next-gen PON upgrades.  

We have teamed up with Light Reading and Heavy Reading to bring you the highest caliber of news and analysis on the current state of the telecoms industry. With the support of our media and research experts, the event will cover the most important future trends and risks in the North American market.

Join the industry in Irving, Texas on May 21-23, 2024 for this year's most comprehensive B2B telecommunications event.
