I’m happy to announce that I will be attending the 2012 Aruba Partner Summit from March 19th to March 21st in Las Vegas. I’ve never attended an Aruba partner conference before, but the impression I get is that this will be more than just another partner conference.
When I think of a typical partner conference, I envision a few speeches from CEOs and founders, maybe a hand-off demo or two, and possibly some whiz-bang-hey-look-how-awesome-we-are case study reviews. Boring. This will not be the case at the Aruba Partner Summit; just take a look at the agenda. The summit will have quite a few sales and technical information sessions to help get people exposed to the entire solution line-up.
Personally, I’m looking forward to the following two sessions:
- Designing Wi-Fi Networks for High Density Environments
- Overcoming Challenges in Outdoor Wireless
While these are the two sessions I’m looking forward to the most, I will be attending all of the technical sessions. I’ll try to post some updates during and after the summit to share what I can. Be sure to check back in a few weeks to get my thoughts on the summit and the future of wireless networking as Aruba sees it.
If you’re interested in discussing any of the agenda items after the summit, please feel free to contact me. I’m always excited to sit and talk wireless with anyone who is interested in the technology.
