The Network News: August 2023

The Network News is VETRO’s monthly roundup of resources, news, events and more.

Greetings from VETRO HQ! The Network News is VETRO’s roundup of resources, news, events and more. Let’s check out what’s new across the wide world of fiber!

Although July is a slow month for industry events, that didn’t stop the VETRO team from getting out and showing up. From Colorado to Indiana, Michigan and even to England, the VETRO team was visiting on-site with customers and partners proving we are always willing to go the extra (last?) mile to learn, engage, and offer support. 

Outside of work, a recent event that highlights our core value of VETRO Pride was a fun running race.  VETRO Account Executive, Amy Farrell hosted the Ripple Island Run last weekend on Great Diamond Island off the coast of Portland, Maine, which VETRO was honored to sponsor.  The way this team shows up for our local communities will always be a source of pride.

Coming up in August we’ll have another busy month – this time with some major trade shows. We hope to see many of you at Mountain Connect, Fiber Connect and the ISE Expo.

To go with the crazy heat wave we’ve been putting out some smokin’ hot new tech in and on the platform. Take a dip into our product pool and prepare to say “cool”!

Cheers to a busy and productive Summer!
