  • Fiber Broadband Association
WASHINGTON — Wireline fiber — and a substantial amount of it — will be needed to support the next generation of our wireless networks. This is according to a newly released white paper from the Fiber Broadband Association. "The Road to 5G is Paved with Fiber" explains the necessity of fiber broadband for 5G networks.

To mark the release of this unprecedented research, the Fiber Broadband Association brought together a panel of industry experts together to discuss the paper's findings as well as the significance of fiber broadband to 5G. Speakers included Heather Burnett Gold, President and CEO of the Fiber Broadband Association; Mark Boxer, applications engineering manager at OFS; Gregg Logan, vice president of engineering at Telapex, Inc.; Kevin Morgan, chief marketing officer at Clearfield; Ellen Satterwhite, vice president at the Glen Echo Group; and David E. Young, vice president of Public Policy at Verizon.

"Fiber broadband is an integral part of the 5G story, and we are glad to be telling that story and sharing this key research, said Heather Burnett Gold, President and CEO of the Fiber Broadband Association. Fiber-connected 5G can and will accelerate the connected future for our country, our businesses, and our communities."
