Networking Track

The network is more important than ever. The new world of ubiquitous, smart devices is creating an explosion in connected equipment, applications, and data that most enterprise networks – in their current form – cannot handle. Enterprises must reconsider, redesign and implement a network infrastructure that successfully manages, monitors and monetizes its connected devices and users. The Networking track will look at networks as the enabler of IT and how leveraging network resources can extend your company's capabilities and create new opportunities. Attendees will learn about new advancements in protocols, architectures, services, and control and automation that can convert your network infrastructure from a cost center to a business asset.
