Change the way you think: BYOD at Interop Vegas 2012

Cisco ISE, NCS, part of Cisco BYOD Solutoin

Navigating the BYOD onboarding process

I am not a car person. When asked to describe a vehicle, I start with color and the number of doors. Then I stop talking. However, for a short time, I worked for a luxury autos website. I could pick out a Maybach on the streets of Manhattan, I knew when Tesla was launching a new model and I could tell you which James Bond movie featured a vehicle other than an Aston Martin.

Now that I spend my days thinking about wireless networking and mobility, I’ve realized that my perception of Vegas has completely changed as well. Plans used to revolve around restaurants, craps tables and night clubs. Now, as I get ready to head to Interop Las Vegas 2012, I find myself wondering about the network. With thousands of participants simultaneously trying to gain connectivity with all of their mobile devices, I think about mitigating network interference, being prepared for high density and maintaining security for the participants and vendors at the event.

If you’re headed to Interop and these are things you wonder about as your network is growing, here is a heads up on the demos and speaking sessions that you cannot afford to miss.

How BYOD is Driving Change in the Campus Network
The drivers of change in the campus network include the requirement to support a significant increase in video traffic, the need to support the movement of virtual machines within the campus data center and the burgeoning movement to bring your own device (BYOD). The panelists in this session will discuss technologies and design options that you can use to redesign your campus LANs.

Check out our Insider’s Guide to Interop for a list of great events covering Borderless Networks – everything from BYOD, to WAN Optimization and Cloud Connectivity! Thanks to Lauren for the great scheduler!

And if you were wondering, my car is a goldish, tan, four-door. And (just for fun) these are 007′s cars… not quite the same thing. Maybe one day!
