These industry visionaries will be on hand to address the most pressing issues facing organizations that are demanding more from IP communications to drive business success. Interop New York (www.interop.com) will take place at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, September 18-22, 2006.
This distinguished list of speakers at Interop New York includes the following:
-- Scott Kriens Chairman and CEO Juniper Networks -- John Swainson President and CEO CA, Inc. -- Mark Bregman Senior Vice President Chief Evangelist Symantec Corporation -- Ross Mayfield CEO Socialtext -- Andrew P. McAfee Associate Professor Harvard Business School
The entire Interop conference will be powered by the InteropNet network, built to support voice, video and data for thousands of demanding attendees and sponsoring exhibitors throughout the week. The InteropNet serves as the Interop event network backbone that offers reliable, high-speed network services to all Interop exhibitors, conferences and meeting rooms. This unique network features industry-leading vendors working side-by-side with their peers to put the IT infrastructure industry's newest technologies to the test and share findings with other IT professionals. The InteropNet is made possible by bringing together leading experts, vendors, and companies in a forum that provides unprecedented access to the benefits and challenges associated with new networking technologies. InteropNet volunteers are currently assembling the InteropNet, and are describing their experiences building the InteropNet through their blog at: http://interop.com/blog/.
The InteropNet will also fuel the InteropLabs, the world's only real-time live interoperability test bed for the latest networking technologies. At Interop New York, the InteropLabs will showcase the various NAC frameworks being developed, allowing attendees to watch experts develop, implement and test new solutions in a live vendor-neutral, standards-based arena. As network access security approaches are beginning to leverage a number of established and emerging standards from IEEE 802 and the IETF including IEEE 802.1X, EAP and RADIUS, the InteropLabs will focus on new approaches for controlling access to vital IT infrastructure based on a wide variety of policy information.
For 21 years, Interop has helped IT and business decision-makers bring together the key components of a solid information strategy to drive efficiency and competitive advantage for their organizations. As business continues to drive the adoption of technology, and the converged network is creating new advantages, an emerging "IP for business" philosophy has woven itself into the fabric of business process applications that will be on display at Interop New York. Through in-depth educational programs, workshops, real-world demonstrations and live technology implementations in its unique InteropNet and InteropLabs programs, Interop® provides the forum for the most powerful innovations and solutions the industry has to offer.
Interop has held a unique place in the IP networking and infrastructure markets for over two decades, and is responsible for fostering the innovation that has fueled the revolution and evolution in IP networking.
