Introducing an expanded Capacity North America 2017:

When Capacity North America was launched 16 years ago, carriers were looking for partners in voice and eventually data services. Fast forward to 2017, wholesale businesses are pursuing a stake in cloud and content, but developing strategic partnerships still remains at the heart of the carrier business.

The brand new Content Distribution Workshop, taking place on Day One as an expanded feature of Capacity North America 2017, will offer the unique opportunity for all stakeholders involved in the delivery of carrier, content and cloud services to develop future relationships and strategies.
