VETRO has Joined the FBA as a Premier Member
VETRO has joined the Fiber Broadband Association (FBA) as a Premier member for both North America and Latin America.
Established in 2001, the FBA is the only all-fiber trade association in the Americas. It provides advocacy, education and resources to companies, organizations and communities who want to deploy the best networks through fiber to the home, fiber to the business and fiber everywhere.
As a member-led organization, the FBA will offer VETRO the opportunity to network with industry leaders, have access to the latest trends and training and promote VETRO’s role in the broadband community. VETRO will bring its extensive knowledge of the broadband industry and will look to offer guidance to all members on everything from fiber network mapping to tips for successfully applying for BEAD grant funding – and everything in between!
In 2022, VETRO has been active in many FBA events, sponsoring all four Regional Fiber Connect conferences, attending Fiber Connect 2022 with a large team, and plans to participate in Fiber Connect LATAM events in both Costa Rica and Columbia.

A Public-Private Partnership Success Model
Earlier this year, Peggy Schaffer, Executive Director of Connect Maine Authority, led her program to successfully secure $28 million in NTIA grant money.
To achieve this landmark funding for her state, Peggy assembled key partnerships including private operators, data providers, engineering experts and technology partners to craft a comprehensive and practical approach to transforming Maine’s rural broadband landscape.
In this webinar, Peggy and leaders from key Connect Maine partners discuss the program’s successes and share how to replicate them for private and public entities seeking funding.
The panel includes VETRO CEO Will Mitchell, Tilson Technologies Manager of Broadband Consulting Frederic Feit, CostQuest Associates VP of Business Development Mike Wilson, and is moderated by Brian Mefford, VP of Broadband Strategy at VETRO, Inc.
Radically Simpler Fiber Management: Editing Fiber Network Paths with VETRO Circuit Editing Tools

VETRO FiberMap’s latest feature update allows you to edit any established fiber path in your network using our circuit editing tools. In this example workflow, we’ll show you how to add a splitter to a FTTH network using the splice diagram, equipment diagram and circuit editing features in VETRO.
