Event Agenda

In the interest of protecting the health and safety of our athletes and attendees, we regrettably must cancel AS2020 due to the spread of COVID-19.  While the event itself is canceled, the organization is committed to its mission of building business relationships and effective networking practices in the telecommunications industry. We will also continue to follow through with our commitment to the US Paralympic Ski and Snowboard Team by moving forward with our spectacular Silent Auction, online. Please visit our Silent Auction page to bid!

DREAMING BIG (Data) - Data Utilization Across Departments

Explore applications and best practices for Big Data currently used by the telecom industry. The panelists will explore utilization across departments including customer service, tech ops, engineering, and billing. Instead of the traditional warehouse with silos that do not connect, the industry looks to build a large data organism that grows and interacts across departments. It’s our dream!
