The Name of the Game? Consolidation

In an industry rife with consolidation, we were very excited to see news of this one come out.

Andrew Pryfogle, Senior Vice President of Cloud Transformation at Intelisys, commented on this merger for CRN this week:

"TW Telecom has made a big investment in the intelligence of their network to do bandwidth on-demand and to ratchet up bandwidth very, very quickly in order to meet the demand of cloud applications. They have really taken a significant position in being a cloud enabler," Pryfogle said."If you combine that with what Level 3 is doing around their interconnections with Amazon Web Services and others, I think it’s a really good complement."

A Glimpse Into the Cloud

To be more accurate, this is a glimpse into the conversation on Cloud or, as we like to call it, the "conversation on convergence."

We wrapped up our second CLOUD LIVE! event of 2014 yesterday at the Petaluma studios.  We had a great time doing it and wanted to say "thank you" to everyone involved in the setup, the panel conversations, as well as everyone who took time out of their schedules to join us.  The next event is coming up quickly — our second Polycom Cloud Services University — and we’re hoping you’ll all be able to join us again!

For now, have a look at some of the inner workings of CLOUD LIVE!
