Joseph Patton will speak on bridging the broadband gap & bringing rural communities into the modern world

“This discussion will highlight the hurdles we have already overcome, and the challenges we are still facing in order to bring rural America into the modern world," said Patton

Joseph Patton, Vice President of Sales and Business Development of Tower Cloud, will present “Bridging the Gap: Bringing Large Bandwidth to Undeserved Areas” at COMPTEL Plus Business Expo 2015.

Even in 2015 there are significant challenges connecting areas that lack mass amounts of fiber. The fast, always-on and connected world that metro areas are accustomed to, is non-existent in the majority of rural communities.

“This is an ever present issue across the U.S.,“ said Patton. “This discussion will highlight the hurdles we have already overcome, and the challenges we are still facing in order to bring rural America into the modern world.”

  •     When: Monday, October 19, 2015, 1:30 – 2:00 p.m.
  •     Where:    Marquis Marriott– San Francisco, California
  •     What: Bridging the Gap: Bringing Large Bandwidth to Underserved Areas

With the advent of new technologies and applications, customers who once were served with traditional TDM services are in need of more scalable and larger bandwidth. Carrier Ethernet has been the answer for the vast majority of these customers, but what about those who have limited fiber in their area? What about rural America?

Patton will discuss the company’s perspective on opportunities and challenges in bringing fiber fed services to these underserved areas, and how we can all work to connect rural America.
