Discussing Telehouse’s attendance at the show, Michelle Reid, Sales & Marketing Director for Telehouse Europe said:

“ITU Telecom World is the perfect opportunity for key global players within the ICT industry to come together and discuss common goals and difficulties. The data centre industry is experiencing many challenges of late due to changes in regulations, market demand and supply as well as global economic pressure. We are also seeing customers turn to providers to manage all their global IT infrastructure needs. Telehouse, with 20 years of industry experience, is in a strong position to support these new demands and also to offer advice from a first-hand perspective.”

Michelle will also present at the show Telehouse’s new European expansions including Magny-Les-Hameaux in Paris and Telehouse West, the £80 million colocation facility in London – due for completion in early 2010. The Telehouse team will take questions on the construction of these new state-of-the-art data centres and the range of managed IT services currently available.

Senior Telehouse and KDDI representatives from key regions throughout the world will be present at the event to discuss current business challenges and opportunities.
