MIDDLEBROOK, VA, April 24, 2018Jaymie Scotto & Associates (JSA), the preeminent provider of Public Relations, Marketing and Event Planning services for the tech and telecom industries, today announces its latest Virtual CEO Roundtable installment, “The State of Dark Fiber: Challenges, Opportunities and its Future,” to be webcast on Friday, April 27 at 11:30 AM ET.

Sean Buckley, Senior Editor, Fierce Telecom at Fierce Markets, will moderate the “State of Dark Fiber” discussion with panelists Cliff Kane, Co-CEO of Cleareon; Felipe Alvarez, SVP Optical Network Solutions of ExteNet Systems; Mark Serjak, VP of Dark Fiber Services of Zayo; and Ray LaChance, President & Chief Executive Officer of ZenFi.

Telecom capabilities are enhanced considerably with dark fiber infrastructure, and currently, strategic acquisitions, rebounding corporate profit, falling lease prices and increasing bandwidth needs are all facilitating significant dark fiber industry growth. According to a 2017 market research report by IBISWorld, the five-year range of 2017 to 2021 will mark continued heavy bandwidth demand from companies as they move towards cloud computing and Internet streaming. Dark fiber network operators are benefiting from the rising demand by assisting enterprises and SMBs with scaling their growing bandwidth needs. Wireless operators are also realizing the important role dark fiber plays in 4G and future 5G network wireless plans. Even with all this dark fiber growth comes the challenges – financing, competitors, ability to serve rural markets, and even the actual dark fiber installations themselves. This Virtual CEO Roundtable will assess the current state of the dark fiber industry, upcoming developments, and predictions about the future.

Limited virtual seats are available for the live webcast on Friday, April 27 at 11:30 AM ET; RSVP here while space permits.
