Jeff England, CFO for Silver Star Communicatons has been representing this Wyoming-based, telecommunications provider and, by extension, independent operators everywhere through his work with the NIST and the FCC. His perspective is sought out because he brings a broader perspective to cybersecurity as compared to the typical IT representation. England explains that cybersecurity is about "risk management" and that, "The NIST Framework provides a bridge between the technology and leadership and where an entity stands on risk."

England believes there is an opportunity for service providers to use cybersecurity as a competitive advantage.

From Central Office to Data Center Webinar

Register Here

10:15 - 11:05 AM EST
Wednesday, Feb 11th, 2015

The central office is the original data center in the sense that had many of the attributes for what a data center requires, such as reliable power, physical security and bandwidth. With the collapse of the switch from racks of equipment to virtually nothing, much of the space in many central offices sits idle.

This panel will look at what needs to be done to convert a C.O. to data center and look at things such as:

  • How to differentiate from the data center behemoths
  • The typical upgrade costs and typical revenue per square foot that could be expected.
  • Typical physical modifications necessary to meet data center demands
  • Scaling beyond the central office – what happens when you have success.

Speakers:

Christopher Bachman, VP Sales, IIS Group – Optimum Power and Environment
Pedro Arias, PE, Ingemel, S.A Engineering Company
Jeff Meyer, Director IT Operations, ITS Fiber Business Services
