FCC’s Starks Discusses Modernizing U.S. Digital Infrastructure


WASHINGTON, D.C. — Mark your calendars for today at 1pm Eastern.

Thanks when global tech trade association ITI will host FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks for a virtual discussion devoted to modernizing digital infrastructure in the U.S.

The Democratic Commission plans to share how the U.S. government can work with domestic industry to ensure effective and timely deployment of infrastructure funding.

The event, part of ITI’s Bridge for Innovation series, will also feature industry leaders and ITI member companies from Cisco, Corning, Equinix and Qualcomm.

“The passage of the Infrastructure and Investment Jobs Act brings with it billions in new investments in the U.S. for expanding broadband and closing the digital divide, improving our cybersecurity defenses, enhancing government digital services, and much more,” ITI notes. “But how can this funding be allocated to ensure that the largest infrastructure bill in recent history is delivering its full benefits to all Americans?”

That’s a question Starks plans to address.

The event will also feature industry leaders who will discuss modernizing digital infrastructure and providing secure connectivity to all Americans. Panelists will include Alissa Cooper, VP and CTO for Technology Policy for Cisco Systems; Jon Lin, EVP & General Manager of Data Center Services for Equinix; Dr. Durga Malladi, SVP & GM of 5G, Mobile Broadband & Infrastructure for Qualcomm Technologies; and Jason Zelley, Market Development Manager of Carrier Networks and Emerging Accounts for Corning Incorporated.
