How Much Bandwidth is Enough?
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM: Breakout
Room: Broadway II (Hilton Portland Downtown)
Format: Concurrent Session - 60 Minutes
Brief Session Description: Districts have the challenge of having to plan for infrastructure five or more years in advance to ensure that they can support the broadband needs of the future. At the same time it is important to not overbuild and overspend. Predicting broadband usage can be tricky as early growth is often 60% per year, a number that flattens out as the buildout and usage mature. Learn from leading state technologists about how their networks have grown over time and what the implications are for district fiber and infrastructure buildout as well as smart bandwidth provisioning.
