Cabling Installation & Maintenance’s parent company, Endeavor Business Media, is hosting a three-day online Data Center Summit June 13-15. The Summit comprises 18 learning sessions covering a wide range of topics that are important to data center managers, from cabling-system design to the use of digital twins and artificial intelligence to make long-term decisions.

The Summit has been organized by Endeavor Business Media brands Cabling Installation & Maintenance, Data Center Frontier, Lightwave, and Security Info Watch. While promoting the event, Endeavor commented that attendees will “have the opportunity to learn about the systems, technologies, and practices that are moving data centers forward. With technical presentations on topics including high-sped optics, DCIM, fiber connectivity, colocation and the cloud, powering data centers, sustainability and more, the Data Center Summit will equip you with information that will allow you to make informed decisions when planning the future of a data center facility.”

The agenda includes a combination of hour-long and 30-minute sessions of different formats. All sessions are free to attend. Some will be roundtable-style discussions with multiple expert panelists. Others will be single-expert presentations. Seven of the eighteen presentations have been approved by BICSI for a continuing education credit (CEC) toward the renewal of BICSI’s professional credentials for individuals who attend the sessions when they are presented live.
