We are so excited to be heading to Kansas City, Mo. next week for the IP Possibilities Conference & Expo.

NeoNova’s very own Ray Carey and Chris Beatson are scheduled to speak during the event (details below), and many of us NeoNovians will be networking and manning our booth located at 207/209 at the Sheraton Crown Center.

In addition to catching up with friends and making new ones next week, we are launching our latest innovation that gives our affiliate ISP/telco customers a new way for their subscribers to watch live and local television – and, it’s very cool.

As always, our goal is to provide our ISP/telco customers the tools they require to be successful, even if that means developing new services to fit a specific need. Our new platform that does just that and more.

Drop by our booth during IP Possibilities so you can learn more about this innovation as well as our other products and services. Plus, you can enter to win a Roku 3 or a Google Chromecast. You won’t want to miss the Networking Reception we’re hosting Wednesday evening, and be sure to catch the presentations by Chris (Wednesday) and Ray (Thursday).

Chris Beatson (Wednesday, April 16 1 to 1:50 p.m.)
In the Emerging Technologies Track, Chris will speak about customized content and how consumers are in control. We are seeing growing numbers of customers cutting the cable “cord.” More and more folks are seeing the benefit of free, advertising-supported or subscription-based over-the-top content as the cost of linear cable content continues to rise. This trend seems to be especially true with younger audiences. This session will provide you with real-time data on this trend and discuss the implications for your video business.

Ray Carey (Thursday, April 17 8:15 to 8:45 a.m.)
Ray Carey will deliver Thursday morning’s keynote address called “Why Hosted Services?” This session will explore the abundant opportunities in hosted services for rural broadband providers, why it is the future of the business, and how it can improve customer service while keeping the lid on your operational costs.

#buildIPnow is a great opportunity to hear how the business of rural telecommunications is changing, and how companies are adapting and succeeding through new trends and technologies.

We look forward to seeing you in Kansas City!
