With a new year comes an all-new conference season and XKL’s team just returned from one of the biggest of the year – PTC’17.
Our DQT10 Transponder was launched just days before PTC’17 and was certainly the topic of much conversation during the conference. The solution not only allows for seamless bandwidth upgrades and simple pairings between 10G and 100G products for increased capacity, but also uses alien wave injection to expand existing optical transport networks that could have been provided by a different vendor.
XKL’s Director of Engineering, Chad Lamb, was invited to return as a featured speaker during this year’s event and joined a panel to offer his insight on green data alongside representatives from Equinix, Digital Realty, Vigilent and PMP. Meanwhile, Regional Director of Business Development Colleen Gallagher made her PTC’17 speaking debut during the SIG Development Luncheon, where she spoke about bringing flexible infrastructure to third world communities.
If you heard Chad and/or Colleen speak, or met with them during the show, be sure to connect with them on LinkedIn! Find Chad’s profile here, and Colleen’s here. Our team met with many wonderful representatives of great companies during PTC’17 and enjoyed panels on hot topics such as data center dynamics, the IoT, cloud and digital transformation, and networking technologies.
