CBX 2009

On Thursday of this week I will be at one of my favorite events - the CBX conference in New York where I will be interviewing some of the best and brightest in the data communications space. The event is hosted by Telx, a leader in the carrier hotel, data center and colocation spaces (Telx is also sponsor of the popular collocation community on TMCnet). Many of the companies in attendance at this invitation-only event are Telx customers looking to do business with one another. A bunch of well-known tech companies will be there as well such as China Telecom, NTT Communications, Force 10, Adva, Ciena, Cisco and more.


Personally I learn a great deal from this event and have attended it for many years. The companies there are on the front lines of bandwidth allocation and they know the trends in the market before they become widely known by those outside the industry. I look to this event as a barometer to the future of the internet - what is happening with IPV6? Do we really have a fiber glut? Is bandwidth demand still increasing in this economy? What is the real effect of all those smartphones on data demand?

Here is a brief description of the event and some agenda details.

The 2009 Customer Business Exchange is an invitation‐only networking event designed to help grow our customers' business. This years event will take place in New York City, NY, one of the largest telecommunication hubs in North America.

Hundreds of decision‐makers will gather, showcase new and existing products and services, and close deals. This event is unique in that all the network operators that are exhibitors and sponsors have direct capacity available to deliver from a Telx facility today. This makes the Telx CBX a highly targeted and relevant event.

The 2008 CBX event touted 1000 c-level and other senior-level executive attendees that representing 458 companies in 21 countries around the world. CBX attendees are focused on creating new business opportunities that will extend networks, facilitate faster data transfers, add new services and grows businesses organically. And due to overwhelming early demand and our Meet Me Room expansions, we expect this year's event to attract a record‐number of industry leaders and executives.

Enterprise customers will find considerable opportunities for business growth and expansion at CBX as well; those needing the services of a variety of carriers or service providers can meet all of their needs by choosing Telx and its partners. In addition, each industry including Financial Services can benefit from an ecosystem of providers targeted to meet the industry's specific needs. For example, financial service customers will enjoy particular benefits, as a variety of financial service providers, networks, and exchanges attend CBX.
