Preetha Vijayakumar, vice president, Enterprise Network and Communications Services for FedEx, will keynote SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2019 in New Orleans.
In "Delivering the Future," Vijayakumar will articulate how new technologies - enabled by cable's 10G initiative - are unlocking new opportunities for FedEx delivery systems. Vijayakumar's operational area is responsible for optimizing capabilities of the data centers, networks and field service organizations that connect FedEx's web of transportation services.
The keynote remarks will take place at the Expo Opening General Session on Oct. 1 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
"When it comes to product innovation, cable and FedEx appear to moving on similar tracks," said Vijayakumar. "At the same time that cable is moving toward a future of 10G services, we're seeking reliable high bandwidth and low latency connectivity to move ever-richer volumes of data. We see opportunities in the future to explore how 10G networks can serve as the foundation for a new round of FedEx product innovation."
"FedEx' keen grasp of the connective power of telecommunications has played a pivotal role as it has revolutionized essential delivery of goods," said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of the SCTE/ISBE. "Today's cable technology and the transformative capabilities of our 10G networks are unparalleled in enabling high-speed, robust, low latency and highly secure communications backbones that can drive service excellence and business results for companies such as FedEx."
During almost two decades with FedEx, Vijayakumar has worked in IT Infrastructure, from management of FedEx' Internet systems and data center management to platform architecture and cloud transformation.
