Wireless Field Day 7 is quickly approaching. Here at Extreme Networks we are very excited to come back for our second turn presenting to the delegates, and the internet viewing community. We’ll be up at 4pm/Pacific on Wednesday, August 6 – please join our session and engage socially using hashtag #WFD7. Here’s a small preview of what’s on our mind:

What’s interesting to me is not just the push to modernize IP networks that we’ve built for years. Sure, I agree with the point being made that its time for networks to modernize following the mainstay counterparts – Compute and Storage. And with due respect to the networking industry the point is difficult to argue against.
