Light Reading, the market-leading online community for the global communications sector, and the Telecommunications Industry Association, the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, announced an enhanced collaboration involving marketing, content-sharing, research and speaker exchanges.
Both TIA and Light Reading will continue advancing readiness for change within the communications ecosystem in the areas of software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G networks, big data analytics, cloud and data centers, and other trends.
Stephen Saunders, Founder and CEO of Light Reading, said, “We are very pleased to combine our expertise and resources with TIA on a host of projects to accelerate the global communications industry. We look forward to continue working closely with TIA as we have in the past.”
TIA President Grant Seiffert commented, “The ICT industry is facing rapid transformation and unprecedented demand as a result of the tremendous growth of mobile, video and the cloud. Our continued affiliation with Light Reading will enrich both the guidance and information available on how to strategize and plan for future networks, while continuing to make that information readily available to the carriers, end users and suppliers who need it most.”
