PITTSBURGH -- The American Cable Association called on the Federal Communications Commission to stay the course with regard to rules associated with the first round of Connect America Fund (CAF) money accepted by large telecommunications carriers because the program’s goal of jump-starting broadband deployment in unserved areas achieves the FCC’s goals.
“The FCC designed the Phase I of the CAF program to reach a significant number of relatively low-cost locations with up to $300 million in federal support. With the funding allocated last year, the program’s stated objective is in the process of being achieved. Until that is no longer the case, the FCC need not substantially alter the program,” ACA President and CEO Matthew M. Polka said.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
