Next week the SearchNetworking team will be reporting to you from Interop in Las Vegas. If my email inbox is any indication, there’s a lot going on at the show this year. I’ve received at least 500 emails over the last three weeks from vendors who desperately want me to tell you their stories.
There’s only so much ink in my pen, so you won’t hear all those stories. I apologize for that. But we’ll be bringing you as many interesting bits of news on this show as we can.
As a favor to you, our readers, we’ve reached out to some of the experts who will be speaking at Interop this year to get their insight on what to expect from the show. I caught up with Anne Skamarock, research director at Focus Consulting, who will be taking the stage several times to talk about virtualization. I asked her to tell us what to look for on the virtualization front at Interop.
Tessa Parmenter chatted with wireless networking expert Lisa Phifer about WLAN topics at Interop, Kate Dostart talked mobile apps and devices with Farpoint Group’s Craig Mathias, and Kara Gattine tracked down Burton Group’s Paul DeBeasi and picked his brain about enterprise wireless deployments.
We hope this whets your appetite for Interop news. We’ll be publishing news, blog posts and video from this show. Keep an eye on our Interop Las Vegas 2008 special news coverage page for all the news that’s fit to print.
