JT’s Mark Stuchfield, JT Lab Business Development Manager and Tim Ringsdore, MD of Global Enterprise attended the event and were joined by JT’s Silicon Valley-based Global Ambassador Rick Pierson, who delivered a presentation on JT’s Gigabit Jersey programme during the event.
Tim Ringsdore, said: ‘As an active member of the Telecom Council we regularly attend events such as this which enable us to network with the world’s leading experts in telecommunications. This event was particularly important as it was an opportunity to join in on some key industry discussions on upcoming trends which will effect communications globally and the entire event was labeled a success by all involved. We were pleased to be able to support the Telecom Council in making this event happen alongside our co-sponsor Avaya.’
He added: ‘During our trip to the US we were also able meet technology innovators, founders and CEO’s of businesses to talk to them about what we are doing here in Jersey, particularly JT Lab, which is proving to be of great interest to those seeking access to a Tier 1 infrastructure to test new products on before launching them into the UK & Europe. This was also an opportunity for our Silicon Valley representative, Rick Pierson, to introduce us to the world’s leading high-tech organisations that he is forging strong relationships with on our behalf. We came away with some excellent feedback on Gigabit Jersey and JT Lab which was most encouraging.’
