September is here and so is conference season as I head to Genband Perspective in Texas and then Metaswitch Forum in Orlando, FL. Genband has been on a tear recently with acquisitions in numerous categories as well as organic growth. I am very interested to see how much progress the company has made since my last visit with them.
Metaswitch too has been growing quickly and they've made a few acquisitions as well. I am looking forward to catching up with the company to see what's next.
In addition, I will be moderating a panel focused on carriers this Fri Sept 24 from 10:45 - 11:30am in Orlando, FL called Define Your Decade where we'll be discussing the future for carriers.
Here are my panelists:
- Deborah Kish, Principal Analyst, Gartner Research
- Joe McGarvey, Principal Analyst, IP Services Infrastructure, Current Analysis
- Rob Pettiford, AVP Commercial Products, Frontier Communications
