What a day! Last week, Cross River Fiber enjoyed industry insight and networking at Telecom Exchange (TEX). The event was hosted by our friends at Jaymie Scotto & Associates and took place June 22 at the Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. We kept ourselves incredibly busy throughout the day – between panel discussions, media interviews and discussions with old and new friends in the telecom and tech industries. Nonstop movin’ and shakin’! We have attended the event each June, and always find it to be incredibly worthwhile and a lot of fun.
This year, Cross River Fiber CEO Enzo Clemente had the pleasure of participating in a CEO Roundtable entitled, “Fiber in the City: Analyzing the Need for New Metro Dark Fiber Builds in and Around NYC.” Obviously, Enzo had plenty to say. You will be able to see a video of the full roundtable very soon – we’ll be sure to share! The panel offered plenty to geek out on. The focus was on drivers and benefits of new networks, the challenges within the competitive marketplace and current and future opportunities.
We found the discussion especially exciting and appropriate for our company (if we do say so ourselves), as we are currently expanding our offerings by more than 50 miles with the construction of a new high-density fiber optic cable system. And, of course, we already offer a dense fiber network throughout our footprint that is secure and scalable, and allows access to dark fiber, wavelength, Ethernet and other critical network services. In short, we take care of our customers and are working to provide even more.
We also were a silver sponsor and closing reception sponsor for TEX, and exhibited at the event. So, we had the opportunity to network throughout the day with current and future partners. Enzo also spread the good word during a video interview with TMCnet, while Executive VP of Sales Mike Sevret provided insight during a JSA TV interview as well. We will be sharing those videos very soon!
Enzo summed up the essence of the event during his Post-Tex Party toast –
“Here’s to all of us working together today to build the new and necessary infrastructure for tomorrow’s great innovations. Please join us for a drink care of Cross River Fiber. And salute to our next adventures!”
We look forward to this event each year. It gives us the opportunity to talk up Cross River Fiber and all of the great projects we have on the horizon, along with what we are currently offering customers. We also love meeting all of our industry peers and talking shop. Can’t wait to attend this great event again!
