Hugh CarspeckenManagerUbiquity Edge

Hugh has over 25 years of cross-industry technology experience, from data networking to fiber optics to wireless/cellular infrastructure to data centers.

He spent his early career engineering and deploying metro fiber, access, and cellular networks with GTE (later Verizon), while later helping to start and grow several, successful start-ups in Silicon Valley, such as ONI Systems (NASDAQ: ONIS before NYSE: CIEN), FiberTower (NASDAQ: FTWR before NYSE: T), and Wave2Wave Solutions. In these roles Hugh helped bridge the gap between the state of technology and its implementation, in order to accelerate the technology’s adoption in the market.

After leaving Silicon Valley, Hugh held a senior leadership role at Fujitsu Network Communications, launching and growing Fujitsu’s multi-technology Solutions organization, with regards to fiber, wireless, cellular, and data center infrastructures.

Through his founding of DartPoints in 2012 and acquisition in 2020, Hugh has been a leading pioneer in the Edge Data Center space, in which he drove the evolution of highly-distributed data centers to adapt better to the growing and morphing requirements of today’s data applications and digital infrastructure.

Applying the parallel lessons learned through these various technologies and industries, Hugh is leading Ubiquity Edge to a distributed, interconnected, and sustainable future, through modular data deployments, last-mile fiber connections, and resilient microgrids with the support of Generate Capital.

He received his A.B. and B.E. in Engineering from Dartmouth College and his Master in Engineering Management from the Thayer School of Engineering and Tuck School of Business.
