Thank you Danny Ee
We thank Danny Ee, P.E. of Austin Energy for his presentation on the many factors affecting systems reliability in the design of long haul and local metropolitan networks. His knowledge and experience enhanced his presentation and was particularly evident as he answered questions from the audience. We learned a lot about the considerations that must be addressed if reliable customer service is to be maintained.
