Interop2016A_170x200To sustain attendee interest for 30 years, Interop has had to continually re-invent itself and adapt to maintain thought leadership in the Enterprise Networking realm. Along the same lines, InteropNet has had to change to maintain relevance. This panel discussion will outline where we have come from and what we are doing today to engage attendees and position InteropNet as a viable resource for the future.

LMTV Interop | Oldcommguy Remembers 30 Years of Interop (with Tim O'Neill)



PLEASE JOIN US LIVE: Wednesday, February 24, 2016, 9:30 AM PST


Interop2016_170x200Join this week's special LMTV session where Tim the Oldcommguy reminisces on the many years of Interop memories. Tim attended Interop from 1990 through 2004. The first session was invitation only, in 1989 it was a tech show and in 1990 it was the first trade show.

The 1990 Internet Toaster was the big hit by David Romkey (SP) !

Interop really took off in 1992 and as of today it is the largest network technology trade show in the world.

OldcommguyTim will talk about the maturity of Interop compared to the early years when Ethernet was just becoming an everyday technology.

The NOC went from handling less than a few thousand devices to the 100’s of thousands of devices today with Ethernet speeds to 100GB. A walk down the path of old memories and the birth of the technologies we take for granted today. The Ethernet through barb wire demo was another memory! Great time like when Mr. T attended Interop and dignitaries like Vinton Cerf, Bill Gates..etc

Interop started in Monterey CA and went all over the world! I attended Toronto, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Santa Clara and New York .

Together, NetScout's nGenius and Network General's Sniffer brands have become one of the most trusted names in the industry.

And so have we.

Jim_McNielToday, we caught up with Jim McNiel, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing for NetScout and asked him to explain the new company branding, "Guardian of the Connected World", a new world which we the consumers have created based on our expectation of always-on connectivity and one where "THERE IS NO OFF".
