To say it was a busy month for our team here at WireIE would be an understatement. As November rapidly approached, our management team, President & CEO, Rob Barlow and EVP of Marketing, Neil Buchanan prepared for the final networking events of the season. Both events, taking place outside of Canada provided our team with the opportunity to provide thought leadership across the global telecom market as well as allowed us to continue to grow internationally throughout the Americas.
The first event, known as Capacity Europe, took place on November 7-9th in Paris, France. The three-day conference had a record number of attendees with 2,000 senior level guests, 500 companies and 80 countries, all of which included an array of critical industry leaders, but that wouldn’t be the highlight for our team; that came later on during second day of the conference while attending the 11th Global Carrier Awards. On the evening of November 8th, we were honored to accept the Best North American Project award. WireIE received the awarded as a result of our unique nomadic solution, which combines innovative technology and management processes to address the need for MEF-certified, carrier-grade Ethernet in underserved markets internationally. “It is an honor to be recognized not only for our nomadic solution, but for our greater goal of creating a more connected world and enabling our carrier partners to future-proof their networks,” said President & CEO, Rob Barlow.
Exactly a week later, our management team boarded a plane, still elated from our win, ready to take on Telecom Exchange, in Los Angeles, CA. Aside from walking the floor and making new connections during this premiere industry event, our team was excited to hear Rob speak on two CEO Roundtables entitled, “IoT & the Data Center: Talking Cloud, Power & Performance” and “IoT & Cybersecurity: Risks in the Supply Chain, Privacy & Defense.” The Roundtables provided an opportunity for industry leaders to share their predictions for tech and telecom’s future and to participate in casual Q&A discussion moderated by industry analysts and journalists.
Want to see a replay of the roundtables? Stay tuned for the release of the videos on our website as well as a look into Rob’s video interview with JSA TV, where he delved into the topics of IOT and IIOT and how they are important to our society and enterprises. Believe us, these are discussions you won’t want to miss!
If you happened to miss us at the shows, you’ll be able to find our management team in Hawaii for the annual, Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC) event. To arrange an onsite meeting with Rob and the rest of the WireIE team at PTC, please email email@example.com.
