For 26 years, Interop has been the leading business technology event, showcasing the latest innovations in IT and business technology while helping attendees gain a comprehensive understanding of those advances.This year’s focus will be on today’s hottest topics in the industry: cloud computing, virtualization, security, mobility and data center advances.
The attractions include in-depth technology tracks and workshops, the largest temporary network in the world, InteropNet, and the thrilling Expo floor itself, with exhibitors demonstrating myriad new features and improvements. All together, Interop is a don’t-miss event for folks who want to be on the leading edge.
World’s Largest Private Network, InteropNet
Interop is all about collaboration and interoperability, and its network, InteropNet, is an example of that. InteropNet’s network architects collaborate to build this totally interoperable network with the purpose of fostering adoption of emerging technologies. At the InteropNet Hot Stage, hundreds of vendors representing many millions of dollars in technology come together to build one of the largest temporary networks at an offsite data center to support Interop’s 15,000 attendees in Las Vegas. The network carries the event’s communications traffic and enables new solutions to be demo’ed with highlighting of new features and improvements.
That said, the Network Operations Center (NOC) team at Interop takes on the challenge of seeking out the highest performing and most reliable solutions on the market. For 14 consecutive years, Net Optics has been delighted to be part of the InteropNet. This year, Spyke™ and Director xStream™ will deliver to the InteropNet the unique application intelligence and total visibility that enable high availability and performance.
By using the Spyke solution, Interop gains the ability to satisfy its users—maintaining exceptional network availability. Director xStream is Net Optics’ advanced data monitoring switch that works as part of the InteropNet solution to aggregate, regenerate and switch traffic. This traffic, traveling from any set of network links and Span ports, can be aggregated into a single stream and regenerated to multiple ports simultaneously without impacting speed or data integrity. Total monitoring visibility into all InteropNet traffic allows the NOC team to monitor critical data and protect network health as well as troubleshoot.
