It’s Wireless Field Day – a day where innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders come together to share information and opinions about the future of the industry. Here at Extreme Networks, we’re thrilled to participate for the second year. This year we’ll discuss how the world of Wi-Fi and Software Defined Networking (SDN) are bound to collide, but don’t just take our word for it. Analyst R. Scott Raynovich predicts that SDN will represent the biggest technology shift in networking in 20 years. What’s more, wireless and mobility blogger Lee Badman makes the case that, “Both (SDN and Wi-Fi) are redefining the way enterprises do business and will have profound impacts on the evolution of networking for well into the future.”
In our presentation, we’ll discuss the need to consider hybrid approaches as we enter the next generation of networking. While SDN has not yet taken the wireless industry by storm, it’s important to build the network today that you will need tomorrow. The floodgates will soon open – will you be ready?
If you’re like us, and the discussion around WLAN and SDN excites you, be sure to tune in and follow the conversation online with the #WFD7 hashtag.
