Tech Talk > Conversations With Experts: A Metanoia, Inc. Signature Series!  
Conversations with Experts is a Metanoia, Inc. Signature Series, which we are proud to have launched in conjunction with our 10th anniverasy in June 2011!

(On June 5th, 2011, we completed 10 successful years in business, thus, achieving a milestone that we are modestly proud of -- a milestone made possible by the fine group of professionals we have had the privilege to interact with over these 10 years -- ranging from clients, customers, and patrons, to partners, collaborators, and professional colleagues from all segments of the telecom ecosystem on multiple continents, to friends and well-wishers, whose inputs, advice, and blessings have brought us this far!)

This is a unique series, designed to take a contemporary topic in telecommunications, and explore it in some detail with an industry authority or expert, deeply involved with that topic. The idea is to share insights, debate issues, discuss problems, evalute solutions -- in short, to provide a valuable capsule of knowledge and insight not easily available, in this form, from the more regular sources. Our goal, as always, is to advance understanding of our industry, it's complexities, it's systems and processes, and, above all, it's people!

The range of topics is as vast as our interests, and as rich as our industry -- ranging from hardware and software platforms/systems (switches, routers, cross-connects, optical gear), to software systems (for diagnostics, monitoring, managing, and configuring communication networks), to software tools (for planning, designing, testing, and evaluating telecom systems/networks), to ASICs, chips, and SOCs (that form the very heart of modern telecom systems), to infrastructure, and telecom network management. It includes technologies of yonder and those on the horizon, from SONET/SDH to 4G/LTE, and it encompasses perspectives from practitioners to researchers, to academics.

We welcome your comments, feedback, inputs, flames, encouragement, and thoughts. Simply, email us at experts@metanoia-inc.com. Or, if you feel strongly about a topic, pick-up the phone and call us directly at 1-888-641-0082! We are always keen to receive your inputs, because we wish this to be relevant to you, our audience and readers!
