Webinar Description

While much of the attention on wireless small cell attachments has focused on the legal, regulatory, and operational impacts of addressing such attachments, the increased need for wireless attachments and associated communications infrastructure may also present public power utilities with significant business opportunities to provide broadband transport and other communications capabilities to help facilitate the deployment of such networks. This webinar will provide an overview of potential broadband opportunities and considerations for public power utilities that may arise from the widespread deployment of small cell facilities.

Topics

  • Overview of small cell and 5G technologies and their need for fiber “backhaul” transport
  • Discuss various business models and opportunities arising from small cell deployment
  • Learn about legal and practical considerations surrounding such broadband business activities 

Series Description

Participate in this three-part series to learn about the latest legal and regulatory developments, as well as the most significant issues facing public power utilities at the federal, state, and local levels with respect to these attachments—including an in-depth review of 5G wireless technologies. Hear how public power utilities of all sizes are successfully negotiating agreements and managing wireless attachments and, in some case, seizing new business opportunities presented by these facilities.

Recommended for

Managers, engineers, lawyers, and other representatives of public power utilities that own or control poles, ducts, conduits, towers, buildings, or other facilities that support wireline or wireless communications attachments.
