The industry's only comprehensive IT event will focus on five key areas that are responsible for enabling business success: Security, Wireless & Mobility, Data Center, VoIP and Collaboration, and Infrastructure & Services. Interop Las Vegas will be held April 30 - May 5, 2006 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
The converged network is creating business advantages that didn't exist a few short years ago, and this industry growth will be reflected at Interop Las Vegas 2006, which has become the platform for the industry's innovation and thought leaders. As business continues to drive the adoption of technology, this "IP for business" philosophy has woven itself into the fabric of business
process applications that will be on display at Interop.
"Since the first Interop was held back in 1986, the focus of the event has shifted over the years from building the network to making it seamlessly connect with information in real time," said Lenny Heymann, Interop General Manager. "In the past year, this has become even more of a reality, as IP-based unified communications have made access to data and people easier and faster than ever before."
For 20 years, Interop has held a unique place in the IP infrastructure markets, and is responsible for fostering the innovation that has fueled the revolution and evolution in IP networking. With network convergence now taking center stage as the key enabler of the latest technology innovations, Interop will continue to show how all of the pieces fit together to help IT organizations overcome their business challenges.
