AUSTIN, Texas -- The elite of the industry descended on Texas's state capital recently for the premier communications provider confab of the year, Light Reading's Big Communications Event.

The conference this month provided an opportunity for industry leaders to connect with their peers. We also delivered panels and presentations about the top business and technology issues transforming the industry.

This was our third year in Austin, which is a great city. It's always a happy occasion to set foot on the ground there, and a little bit sad to leave.

Here's some of what we saw:

 

Roz Roseboro, Heavy Reading principal analyst, spotted these signs about 30 miles outside of Austin. She headed for the cell towers, of course. (Of course!)

Now entering its fifth year, the 2020 Vision Executive Summit is an exclusive meeting of global CSP executives focused on navigating the disruptive forces at work in telecom today. Join us in Lisbon on December 4-6 to meet with fellow experts as we define the future of next-gen communications and how to make it profitable.


During and after the conference, we wrote a ton of articles about the issues discussed there. We also wrote up the prestigious Leading Lights Awards and Light Reading Hall of Fame. As a matter of fact, we've got a whole page of show coverage. Here are a few highlights:

If you really want to enrich your knowledge and the process of the learning about the electronic products then you must carry your thoughts and ideas from the Hp Support Number.

@Michelle: And, moreover, both signs point to things that can be potentially unhealthy. ;)

Good to see that Steve played the event again.

As for the attendees in Slide #2, they seem pretty bullish on 5G.

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.
