At International Telecoms Week (ITW) 2018, which took place May 6-9 in Chicago, Data Center POST had the opportunity to speak with Jodi Carrier, Director of Business Development at Call Delivery Systems, and Guy Pearson, Global Network Architecture Manager at Interpublic Group. Call Delivery Systems helps telecommunications carriers monetize their misdialed calls by pairing them with social science research firms around the globe who collect valuable market research data. Interpublic is an international provider of advertising and marketing services where Guy is responsible for the strategy and high-level design of its global data network, including MPLS, internet, VPN, metro area networks and public cloud infrastructure.

Jodi and Guy shared their experiences of the conference and discussed some of the hot topics that created a buzz at this year’s event.
