MIDDLEBROOK, VA, August 16, 2017 – Jaymie Scotto & Associates (JSA), the premier provider of PR, Marketing and Event Planning services to the tech and telecom industries, and founder and host of Telecom Exchange (TEX), the executive-level networking event ‘where communications and technology meet’, announces a call for c-level speakers for its upcoming TEX LA event, November 6-7, 2017 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

TEX LA features five CEO Roundtables, providing an opportunity for industry thought leaders to share predictions for tech and telecom’s future and participate in educational Q&A discussions moderated by renowned industry analysts, journalists, bloggers and social influencers. TEX is presently adding new speakers daily, with all spots expected to be filled by September 1.

Current panelists include Simon Lee, Director, Centeris, and Managing Director, Sapience Capital Partners; Rob Barlow, CEO, WireIE; Silver Sponsors CHT Global and Cyxtera; and Bronze Sponsor Megaport.

CEO Roundtable 1, “If It Can Be Hacked… Network Security & The New Reality” moderated by Robert Powell, Editor & Creator, Telecom Ramblings, explores what is next in cyber hacking, content theft, and network best practices as we prep for the new reality of a connected world.

CEO Roundtable 2, “Content Providers, OpEx and the Future of Data Centers,” is moderated by Ronald Gruia, Director of Emerging Telecoms, Frost & Sullivan. As data center business models have shifted as content providers like Google, Riot Games, Blizzard, Facebook, and Salesforce have identified cost and operational benefits from abandoning outsourced infrastructure and investing in their own facilities, this roundtable will explore options, opportunities and what’s next.

CEO Roundtable 3 is “Get Ready For the Olympics LA: IoT, Smart Cities, & Infrastructure Predictions.” The Year 2028 is not as far off as it may sound, particularly as Los Angeles readies its infrastructure to host the Olympics. Meanwhile, technology developments are in overdrive, with smart objects turning into smart homes and then into smart cities. This panel will address how LA and other tech-driven cities redefine the ‘connected’ opportunities of tomorrow and what is in store for next-gen technologies as well as infrastructure.

CEO Roundtable 4 focuses on “TransPacific Connectivity Challenges & Opportunities,” which will explore the burgeoning opportunities and challenges for TransPacific cable builders, datacenter operators, OTTs and more. The final CEO Roundtable, “AI, Skynet, Ethics & Threats: What’s Next for Human & Robot Races,” will explore AI developments, safeguards and potential next steps.
