Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings are ordinarily held the first Wednesday of every month from noon to 1 PM. Our guest speakers in the past have included the president of the Linux users group doing a live show-and-tell installation of Linux, engineers from Microsoft, Cisco, VMware, Dell, and other presenters of this type. We get engineers to come talk to us, and we ask them to give us the nuts and bolts details of how to make these systems work

Please join us for our next meeting -

When: Tuesday, January 31st, 2017, from noon to 1:00 p.m.

Topic: Brocade - The New IP – Changes in IP Networking


Everyone’s talking about the New IP.  Why?  Because this radical transformation of closed, proprietary IP networks into open, software-driven innovation platforms really is a business game-changer.  By simplifying and automating network processes, the New IP encourages innovation and accelerates the speed of service delivery.  It’s the ideal environment for deploying revolutionary business models that take full advantage of the mobility, cloud, social networking, and big data technologies collectively described by IDC as the Third Platform.  The New IP is the network for the Third Platform.  Businesses that transition to the New IP will be more competitive and more relevant to all of their user communities, and agile enough to stay that way.

Presented by: Michael Hughes, Systems Engineering Manager, Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.

It should be another terrific presentation so plan now to attend and bring a guest!

As always, we will have pizza (and now salad) (sponsored by Brocade!) available for your eating pleasure along with door prizes and free information!
