The Network News: January 2024

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!

Happy New Year everyone! 2023 was a record-breaking year for the fiber broadband industry in the United States with 9 million additional homes passed with fiber. With this extensive growth and expansion, the demand for fiber network design, documentation and management software also continues to grow. In 2023, VETRO experienced a significant boost in both its team and business, a success attributed to our exceptional customer base. As our team expanded, so did our network of partnerships and the capabilities of our products.

Looking forward, even more substantial growth is expected with the Fiber Broadband Association predicting 12 million more U.S. homes will be passed with fiber in 2024 – and VETRO is ready to support this growth. We continue to look at the market, listen to our customers, and invest aggressively in platform advancements. And we can’t wait to share all that we’ve been working on.

I closed out 2023 filled with gratitude, and look ahead with a deep sense of determination and purpose. We will continue to visualize a connected world, and build out the digital home of the physical internet. Wishing you all a year filled with success, health and happiness – and connectivity.
