We’ve got big (telecom) news! Chicago is already home to deep dish pizza, lake effect snow and the Magnificent Mile, but in 2 weeks it will host telecom industry movers and shakers! Wireside is a media partner of Light Reading’s Big Telecom Event, being held June 17-18 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers. The Big Telecom Event (BTE) is an industry-first event designed to bridge the gap in the telecom industry between technology know-how and business acumen.
The BTE will cover some of the industry’s hottest topics, such as NFV, SDN, and the carrier cloud. The event comprises a best-in-class conference with show floor demonstrations of networking technologies and applications that deliver real insight and tangible value to attendees.
Wireside’s Senior Account Executive, Christine Carlson, will be traveling to Chicago to attend, and our clients NTT America and the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL) will share real-world experience and expertise acquired as leaders in the telecom industry. NTT America’s CTO Doug Junkins will join the panel Virtualization Innovation: Service Providers in Action (Tuesday, June 17, from 10-11 a.m.), and will also speak on the panel Network Management & Orchestration Challenges for SDN/NFV (Wednesday, June 18, from 3:45-4:45 p.m.).
