Otsego County Workshop Will Demonstrate Business Technology Trends

By CMI Staff

Event designed to help businesses better understand technology topics
like cloud services, disaster recovery, bandwidth requirements

Several leading technology providers will join together on Friday, May 16, to participate in the Gaylord Regional Technology Workshop in Otsego County. The event, produced in cooperation with Connect Michigan and the University Center Gaylord, will offer free educational information about networking and technology to local business leaders.

CenturyLink, Charter, COMLINK, Frontier Communications, Lynx Network Group, SPI Innovations, TSS, Airiston, Gaslight Media, University Center Metropolitan Area Network, and Peninsula Fiber will all participate in the workshop, which will take place at the University Center Gaylord from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and feature panel discussions, keynote speakers, and breakout sessions that explore how technology trends are changing the landscape of business communications.

“Technology can be intimidating, especially for small business owners who need to focus on running their businesses and not be distracted by confusion about networks and services,” said Tom Stephenson, community technology advisor for Connect Michigan. “We are pleased that so many providers of technology solutions are joining this event to shed light on topics like the cloud so that businesses can better understand how to fully leverage technology.”

A broad range of relevant topics will be addressed at the workshop including:

  • How much bandwidth do you need to accommodate your business needs?
  • What is a disaster recovery plan and why does your business need one?
  • Should you move some or all of your data and voice services to the cloud?

This event is free and open to all local businesses. Business owners who want to attend must register by May 5 by contacting Connect Michigan Champion Kristy Kelley at
