ZenFi Pushes High-Bandwidth Mobile and Broadband Connectivity Closer to the User

ZenFi’s Three-Pronged Approach Enables Wireless Connectivity in an Increasingly Wireless and Broadband-Connected World.

New York, NY – February 17, 2017 ZenFi, New York’s carrier-neutral fronthaul fiber provider, announces today that its President and Chief Executive Officer, Ray LaChance, will attend the Mobile World Congress taking place February 27 to March 2, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.  Mr. LaChance will be available to share insights on how ZenFi’s three-pronged approach enables wireless connectivity in an increasingly wireless and broadband-connected world.

First, ZenFi owns and operates a carrier-neutral dark fiber network specializing in fronthaul, backhaul and wavelength connectivity to enable the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G capability.  The carrier-neutral dark fiber networks enable IoT content growth by pushing capacity closer to the edge.  With 400-plus route miles of fiber in New York City and 15-plus on-net data centers, ZenFi infrastructure underlies and empowers connectivity in today’s mobile world.

Second, ZenFi provides mobile wireless connectivity and enhanced IoT on every sidewalk, to and, in every building, and throughout every neighborhood and borough in New York with access points in closer proximity to end users. The access points are interconnected to key aggregation points that connect to the core of the internet.  Collocated at specific PoPs that are interconnected to the core backhaul fiber network, the neighborhood network supports widely distributed wireless equipment interconnection and colocation, bringing more small cells, in-building and outdoor DAS remotes, remote radio heads, macro sites and Wi-Fi access points closer to the user.  The neighborhood network approach enables high-bandwidth connectivity to mobile communication antennas, offering more on- and off-ramps to the locations customers want to reach.

Third, the neighborhood network complements the Express Network, which serves as the interconnection point between New York City’s carrier hotels, carrier-neutral data centers and enterprise locations.  It also serves as a gateway to its Access Network connecting wireless access points throughout the city.

“ZenFi continues to enhance wireless connectivity and the Internet of Things throughout New York City by delivering unprecedented bandwidth,” explains Mr. La Chance.  “With fiber to virtually every street corner in New York across all five boroughs, ZenFi is revolutionizing wireless and broadband connectivity and all that it enables.  Mobile World Congress is always a great show for fostering innovation and I am excited to be attending.”

Founder and CEO Ilissa Miller to Speak on the Strategies and Tactics Leveraging Media and Analysts at Events

iMILLER PR LogoMamaroneck, New York – July 13, 2016 – iMiller Public Relations (iMPR), a results-driven, independent public relations and marketing consulting firm, announces today that its CEO, Ilissa Miller, will speak at HostingCon Global 2016, to be held July 24-27 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

On Monday, July 25 at 1:30 p.m., Ilissa will lead a Marketing Speed Roundtable, “How to Leverage Media at Conferences and Events.” During these interactive sessions, attendees will be divided into small groups and meet with five individual workshop leaders for substantive dialogue on such topics as branding, thought leadership and content marketing in the telecommunications and technology sectors.  For her roundtable, Ilissa will lead a discussion of the strategies and tactics a company can apply to engage media representatives and analysts attending conferences to ensure they convey their firm’s core offerings in an accurate, effective and compelling manner.

“Adopting a proactive approach to media and analyst relations at trade shows, conferences and events is the difference between an organization’s message being heard and making an impact or getting drowned out in the din,” comments Ilissa Miller.  “The nature of the symbiotic relationship is that the media needs to be informed of a company’s products and services, while companies need to reach out and effectively nurture relationships with these market influencers to ensure their stories rise clearly above the competing voices in the room.”

In addition to the Roundtable session, Ilissa, a globally recognized public relations professional with over 20 years’ experience in the telecom and technology sectors, will share her marketing expertise with a broader audience during the “Ask the Experts 2” panel on Tuesday, July 26 at 4:45 p.m.

In its 12th year, HostingCon Global attracts telecommunications and technology professionals throughout the hosting and cloud services community to network with industry peers, and explore the technologies and trends impacting the cloud and hosting ecosphere.  This four-day event will serve as a platform for thought-provoking, education-based presentations and panel sessions in addition to an exhibition hall featuring today’s most innovative hosting and cloud services technologies.
