Our guest this Wednesday will give you interesting insights into Chattanooga, TN’s 600-square mile gigabit network. James Ingraham, VP of Strategic Planning for EPB, which is Chattanooga’s public utility and the network operator, has been involved with the network since the beginning.

We’ll discuss

1)    how EPB came to focus on smart grid as a main application of the fiber network, and what are the economic development implications of this decision;

2)    what are some of the cool uses and benefits of the network to date; and

3)    does the mesh network riding over the fiber have the potential to deliver on the dream of municipal wireless from several years ago?

If you have additional questions for James, send them to craig@cjspeaks.com. The call-in feature won’t be available for a couple of weeks.

We’ll archive this show shortly after broadcast, and you can access it from this page. See you Wednesday.
