The Network News: October 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!

Welcome Fall! 

September was marked by VETRO’s international expansion efforts which included attending Connected Britain in London and the welcoming of two new UK-based team members, Ollie Bell, Head of UK Solutions and Jonathan Shears, Head of UK Sales.  These two will join Pete Pizzutillo, Head of International and Partner Development, focusing on expanding VETRO’s presence overseas. We are excited by this growth opportunity and know the VETRO platform will help operators deliver better service to their customers.  

Meanwhile, our core US team has been hard at work helping TONS of customers both new and old move their network businesses forward leveraging the VETRO platform.  Team members have been from Seattle to Calgary. From Texas to Boston. From Arizona to Denver. And on and on. It’s exciting to see the great fiber projects being deployed all over.   And to be a part of making it happen. 

I’m particularly thrilled with the rollout of so many product advancements that are helping our customers win with efficiency and integrated systems.  Many have journeyed from early project planning all the way to operational inventory all within the VETRO System of Record.  This is making their lives easier while positioning them for rapid scaling, efficient operations, and in some cases M & A.

In all of our spare time we’ve managed to craft a strong solution for State Broadband Offices working hard to prepare for BEAD.  Our Broadband Intelligence Platform offering is rising to the occasion just when it is needed most. 

I am very proud of all that VETRO is doing to help advance connectivity for all.
