AI, fiber infrastructure readiness to be featured in two-day online data center summit

Oct. 24, 2023
The Data Center Summit will take place on November 1 and 2, with sessions covering data center cabling, cooling, artificial intelligence, and other driving forces.

On November 1 and 2, Endeavor Business Media (EBM) will present the Data Center Summit, a series of online sessions exploring several technologies and best practices related to data center administration. The event is being produced by EBM brands Cabling Installation & MaintenanceData Center FrontierLightwave, and SecurityInfoWatch.

Sessions will focus on data center networking, cabling, cooling, and physical security. All sessions will run consecutively on the two days; no sessions will run concurrently. Attendees can register for as few or as many sessions as they choose. Some sessions will be roundtable-style discussions with multiple subject matter experts and a moderator. A single expert will deliver others. The sessions do not qualify for continuing education credits (CEC) from BICSI, but attendees will receive attendance certificates to document their participation in each session.

Lightwave and Broadband Technology Report Editor-in-Chief Sean Buckley will host two panels during the two-day event: the AI: A Growth Driver for Data Centers roundtable and Fiber-Optic Infrastructure Readiness For AI-Driven Data Centers on November 1.

The AI: A Growth Driver for Data Centers roundtable will feature industry executives from various parts of the data center industry ecosystem: data center providers, powering, dark fiber and a leading industry analyst.

In the Fiber-Optic Infrastructure Readiness for AI-Driven Data Centers webinar, we’ll hear from AFL about their role in enabling the growth of data centers.
