Date:  Tuesday, February 6

Time:  10:30-11:10

Room:  LaFitte B

Speaker:  Matt Ramsey @ Login

100% of FISPA’s members provide data and/or internet service and 60% offer voice services.  When and if will it make financial sense to invest in your own DataCenter to sell additional services?

In this session, we’ll take a quick look through Login’s 2017 effort of turning a 17000 square foot building that was a Fox TV station for 20 years into a modern office and DataDenter.  Along the way, we’ll look at whether or not the high costs associated with the DataCenter portion of the building were a sound investment or a money pit.
