Broadband Over Powerline 2006

Unleashing the full potential of Broadband Over Powerline for your business: core applications, commercialized broadband and the logistics of a large-scale deployment

19 May 2006

An invitation to attend IQPC's 3rd annual Broadband Over Powerline conference - July 25 - 26, 2006, Hilton Garden Inn, Dallas, TX

IQPC is proud to present the 3rd event in the US series of Broadband Over Powerline (BPL): Broadband Over Powerline 2006

July will see municipalities, cooperatives, investor-owned utilities, their partners and telecommunication companies meeting in Dallas, Texas for four of the most important days in the Broadband Over Powerline calendar.

Over the past 3 months, research with the leaders in BPL has indicated that since the large financial investment from the likes of Google, Goldman Sachs and the Hearst Corporation, several patterns have started to emerge. However:

  • Has large-scale deployment really begun to materialize?
  • At what stage of creation is the global standard for technologies?
  • How are core utility applications enhancing the business case for BPL?
  • In what ways are regulations developing and how will they affect your business?

Attend Broadband Over Powerline 2006 and find the answers you have been looking for.
