Utilities own manage and control extensive electric, gas and water infrastructure, which is supported by extensive communications infrastructure. This infrastructure includes towers, poles, conduit and other infrastructure which third party communications providers seek access for the placement of wire and wireless communications equipment. In addition to providing pole attachments and wireless collocation, utilities also provide dark and lit fiber capacity on a wholesale basis to third party communications service providers. As utilities contend with ever increasing demand for faster access to more infrastructure, public policies and regulatory requirements are changing. Also, utilities are implementing improvements in their internal processes and compliance with new RF safety guidelines. The infrastructure track of the UTC Telecom & Technology 2020 annual conference will provide utilities with the information they need to know for permitting and constructing towers, attaching small cells to streetlights, and implementing one-touch-make-ready processes – and many other issues related to the deployment, maintenance and operation of broadband wireline and wireless communications infrastructure. This is the place to be for everything related to utility infrastructure access.
