COLLEGE PARK, Md., July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The broadband carrier and digital home ecosystems are set to converge at the 2011 Digital Home Summit (http://www.digitalhomesummit.com), September 27th - 28th in Orlando, to discuss the exploding business opportunities presented by the digital home. Co-located with the FTTH Conference and Expo, the 2011 Digital Home Summit is the leading destination for broadband carriers to come and gain important insight necessary to help develop digital home strategies.
