The two other panelists joining the “Fiber and the City” roundtable at TEX include Adrian Shatku, CEO for Unifi Communications and Ray LaChance, President & CEO for ZenFi Networks. The roundtable is moderated by Richard Lukaj, Senior Managing Director for Bank Street. Mr. Kane, Mr. Clemente and fellow panelists will discuss burgeoning fiber routes throughout the NYC metro area, and assess the need to justify the new projects. The panel will also focus on drivers and benefits for these new networks, the challenges within the competitive marketplace and the new opportunities on the horizon.

“I’m very much looking forward to Telecom Exchange and what will be a most engaging panel discussion among some of the top experts on fiber networks in the NYC metro area,” comments Kane. “The opportunities are here – demand for dark fiber is growing – and we have positioned Cleareon to capture these new opportunities as the player that brings transparency to an otherwise opaque market.”

“I too look forward to this discussion with my colleagues who are working to provide dark fiber throughout New York City and northern New Jersey,” adds Mr. Clemente. “This is an incredibly important topic and is a driving force behind the ways in which this vital part of the world is becoming more and more connected.”
