Maybe the visuals for this month’s edit letter should include cupids, chocolate hearts, and other signs of luuuv for the upcoming news I get to share. Frankly, I’d like to see a big fluffy teddy bear holding a stuffed red heart with the OSP® logo on it -- because that’s how crushed I am about the topic for the upcoming OSP EXPO 2012 Day II panel discussion!
International Infrastructure Evolution: Challenges & Opportunities
I wonder if I could get our art director to create Valentine graffiti all over this page -- because my heart beats rapidly when I think of the cool topics we get to explore with our impressive network executives at OSP EXPO 2012. Is it any wonder I’m star struck, given the privilege to interview the network executives who understand the international landscape and the interesting aspects of construction and engineering of the wireline and wireless networks across the globe?
So, while all of you may be celebrating this Valentine’s Day holiday with your poetically spun Hallmark cards and dozens of roses, I am having my own little private luuuv-ly celebration as I write this note. And after you learn more about my panelists,* you, too, may get giddy as you mark your calendar to save-the-date for November 13-15:
• Paula L. Doublin, Assistant Vice President Antenna Solutions Construction & Engineering, AT&T
• Thierry R. Sender, Director – Content Delivery Technologies and Americas Network Planning, Verizon
• Michael Wheeler, VP, NTT Communications Global IP Network, NTT America, Inc.
• Guess what? That’s just the beginning! There are a few extra names I can’t reveal just yet. (Think of them as the extra caramel at the center of your super-decadent Godiva chocolate!)
Even better: I have a Valentine’s Day gift for you. It’s an invite to start emailing me questions YOU’D like to ask these super-smart professionals. (Just wait until you detox from all that sugary sweet stuff, please.)
Talk about falling hard! In my editorial world, it doesn’t get any better than this. International topic! Brilliant executives! All I’m missing is that fluffy bear holding a red heart with the OSP logo on it.
