PTC is a renowned three-day event that brings together leading telecommunications decision-makers and offers optimal educational and networking opportunities. Dr. Lamb’s session will take place on Wednesday, January 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. HST.

“PTC is a must-attend event that brings together innovators and decision-makers within the telecommunications marketplace,” comments Dr. Lamb. “I look forward to attending and networking with my colleagues, but also to providing actionable insight into successfully implementing energy efficient networking solutions – a subject that will only grow in importance in the years to come.”

XKL’s DarkStar product suite has been providing “green” solutions for some time now. These systems utilize environmentally-friendly Layer 1 hardware for significant reductions in power and cooling costs. By equipping facilities with XKL appliances, data center providers can offer cloud services at a much-reduced price tag compared to the industry’s standard connection costs.Honolulu PTC
