The FTTH Council will host a Fiber Community Web Seminar on Wednesday June 25, 2008 at 2:00 pm EDT(11:00 am PDT).

Today's FTTH service providers are either successfully delivering video services or are just beginning to "peel back the video onion" or would just like to be more informed about offering video services. This webinar will reveal how a once-underserved market is now fully-served with IPTV services via an FTTH network. Special emphasis will be on how the regulatory, technology and business factors necessarily converge and ultimately influence the video quality and quantity you can offer your customer. High-level topics will include video franchising, content aquisition, distribution requirements, the customer experience, digital rights management and access control.

John D. Andrews is a co-founder and President/CEO of US Sonet, a successful FTTH overbuilder providing voice, video and data services in Salem, Illinois. Mr. Andrews is also a Co-Founder and President of LIGHTSPEED TELECOM, an Illinois certified facilities based CLEC (Competitive Local Exchange Carrier) and wholly owned subsidiary to US SONET. He is an active member of the FTTH Council and has built multiple IPTV headend/earthstations.

Prior to this, Mr. Andrews also co-founded numerous leading edge technology and communications companies over the past 16 years, including accessUS, one of the earliest Internet Service Providers in Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. accessUS was a super-regional ISP andwas listed as one of the 500 fastest growing companies in the nation.
