i-Canada: Supplying “Ultra Broadband” for Google-speed cities: Supply Chain Trends & Opportunities

July 8, 2010

A TeleForum Featuring William (Bill) Hutchison Chair, i-Canada; Ted Maulucci, Tridel; Rick Otway, Cisco

This special one-hour Teleforum hosted by CATAAlliance and its partners will take place on Thursday, July 28th at 11:00a.m. EST.

Pre Register Now, as space is limited.


Ultra-broadband at Google's residential test speeds of one billion bits a second is coming to Toronto, through the mega-revitalization project called "Toronto Waterfront". If you would like to learn more about the Waterfront project, including how to become a supplier on the I.T. side, join a group of your colleagues at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday July 28th for a Teleforum briefing call and Q&A on the coming of ultra-broadband to Toronto. Bigger than Canary Wharf in London, the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Project will provide the same affordable access to collaboration as other leading cities in the world -- cities where new models of effective health care, world class education and workplace collaboration can be innovated.

The Speakers in the Tele-Forum will be:
Bill Hutchison, Chair and CEO of Hutchison Management International; Chair of Waterfront Toronto's i-Waterfront Advisory Council and their Executive Director, Intelligent Communities; and, as a social entrepreneur the founding chair or director of ten industry and social consortia and charitable foundations.
