Another Fiber Mountain™ milestone is almost upon us, and the excitement is palpable around our Cheshire, CT office.
At 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 28 at ITEXPO Miami, I will be speaking with Rich Tehrani, CEO of Technology Marketing Corporation—host company for the biannual conference—in a “fireside chat” that will serve as one of the event’s keynotes.
I’ll be discussing the growth of data centers, the bottlenecks that continued expansion is creating and, of course, the change in network architecture I believe is critical to supporting our ever-expanding bandwidth needs.
In the past, data centers had only one option to support growing networks—purchase larger and more expensive core switches from incumbent vendors. But today, innovations that provide an alternative to massive core switches—like optical connectivity, for example—can help data centers increase capacity and reduce latency while cutting heat, cooling, power and space costs.
I am honored to have the chance to share my perspective with so many technological innovators at a conference with such an impressive history and reputation. And I’m looking forward to seeing all of you there! In the meantime, here is a pre-interview Rich and I recorded for you recently:
