Representatives from the China Telecom Americas channel team attended the Intelisys International Symposium on February 22nd at City Winery in New York City. The event brought together a mix of attendees from international suppliers and sub agents from the Intelisys channel community for a full afternoon of thought leadership and discussion on how to grow international business.
This year’s symposium kicked off with a networking lunch and a brief welcome speech delivered by Justin Marano, Director of Partner Sales at Intelisys. Attendees then dove into educational sessions, exploring topics such as global unified communications, network security, SD-WAN and cloud development, addressing regional factors and actionable steps to anticipate challenges and opportunities.
Jingyu Tian, Regional Sales Manager, Wholesale & Strategic Alliances, discussed the current network situation and future network development in China, where recent developments in 5G and IoT technology have global enterprises discussing multi-cloud and hybrid/SD-WAN infrastructures to support the growing demand for network resources at the edge.

Of course, the symposium wasn’t all work and no play. The symposium closed with an afterparty at the Barrel Room, where attendees enjoyed an evening of cocktails, conversation and invaluable networking opportunities.
