Avaya: Hot and Sexy Wireless and Networking: You’ve been told a bunch of dirty lies. Here’s the Truth….
For many years, the networking industry has promoted certain beliefs, complex network designs, one size fits all wireless solutions, and basic guidelines as the “Correct” way to design and run a network. From the actual design of the network, to the IT staff certifications required, to type of wireless Access Points, the industry has some common themes that were seldom questioned.
In this presentation, we’ll discuss and question the common industry beliefs and requirements. We’ll show you ways to build a better network. We’ll discuss the differences that Avaya can provide in helping you build a network that is more stable, much faster at self-healing, much more secure – and built to last longer than any traditional vendors solutions.

TierPoint: Cloudy with a Chance of Hybrid
Public Cloud, Private Cloud and Colocation can all be spelled “confusing.” It’s not the technology that’s so challenging: it’s the dizzying array of choices and options that are available. Solutions diverge greatly, and with a nearly infinite mix of “hybrid” options, how do you determine which – or what combination – is the right solution, and in what contexts? The answer depends entirely on the needs of your business and the clients you serve. During this session, TierPoint’s Craig Hurley and Chris Scaglione will offer recommendations to help you assess your current situation, including:
- Defining public cloud, private cloud and colocation, and identifying strengths and weaknesses of each
- Strategies to bridge the gaps between multiple platforms
- Three things to consider when planning for your unique needs
