This year’s Pacific Telecommunications Council’s (PTC) 40th anniversary theme, “Connecting Worlds,” spoke to the global nature of communications that is launching a new decade of connections in our industry. And I’m not just talking about the physical and virtual connections that carry the massive amounts of data being transported all over the world, but the interconnection between service providers and their customers that enable private data exchange, which is essential for global digital business to flourish in the decades to come.
Subsea cables are a major focus of the ongoing PTC ’18 conference. Equinix is here in Hawaii – led by Equinix’s Americas President Karl Strohmeyer– to participate in numerous panels as speakers or moderators, and to generally take on a thought leadership role in an industry that’s expanding in size and influence. Equinix is all-in on subsea cables, and our focus on delivering interconnection makes them essential to our future.
