"Even as we change our name to TelcoVision, we remain dedicated to the market that we've served for over a decade â€“ broadband network service providers," said Carol Wilson, Program Chairwoman, TelcoVision. "While public focus often centers on the largest telecom players, there are hundreds of medium and small operators who are not only driving innovation and collectively purchasing large volumes of equipment and software, but also playing a significant role in the broadband future of the U.S. To meet their changing needs, TelcoVision will encompass video services, wireless options and business opportunities such as Ethernet and cloud, delivering the latest information on technology, business strategies and market success stories."
