Webinar Description
Wireline and wireless broadband providers are increasingly pushing for ways to streamline and lower the cost of access to poles, ducts, conduits, street lights, towers, and other publicly-owned infrastructure. Wireless carriers and their allies claim that a geometric increase in wireless support facilities is necessary, in both public rights of way and private property, to enable and support increasingly robust wireless broadband, “Smart City” initiatives, the “Internet of Things,” self-driving vehicles, and many other next-generation applications. The widespread push for faster and less expensive access to wireless support facilities could profoundly affect the ability of public power utilities to manage their poles and other facilities.

This webinar will address the facts and myths surrounding Small Cell Wireless, 5G, and other next-generation wireless technologies, as well as the challenges and opportunities that these developments create for public power utilities. This webinar will also explore current efforts to streamline the make-ready process, including One-Touch-Make-Ready.        

Who Should Participate
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.

Jim Baller, President, Baller, Stokes & Lide, PC, Washington, D.C.
