February 19th accounted for another shooting event with VLCM, HP, and ShoreTel at Doug’s Shoot N Sports. Fun was had by all, and the learning and lunch were pretty phenomenal as well.
VLCM’s Trent Fausett, one of the company’s network engineers, was present to offer valuable insight on HP networking and how VLCM can help any business implement HP’s technologies seamlessly and cost effectively. Trent’s HP-networking discussion covered topics based on HP’s proactive-vs-reactive approach. Among those subjects addressed were HP’s BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) technologies, HP’s SDN (Software Defined Networking), and mobility, virtualization, and policy-driven networking.
One of the most intriguing aspects of Trent’s presentation was the emphasis given to the future of networking. With HP leading the industry in Software Defined Networking, it stands to reason that this was one of the main highlights of the evening. However, along with this, Trent also discussed the Wi-Fi/Mobility advances that continue to challenge and change our approach to networking almost every day. Along with HP’s SDN technologies, BYOD is another topic of supreme importance in networking today.
Shoretel was another VLCM partner whose technologies were discussed by Trent Fausett. ShoreTel’s “brilliantly-simple” approach to unified communications is the reason VLCM works with them in all the company’s communication deployments. ShoreTel technologies address the complications of endless
endpoints in mobility configurations, the speed of innovations, and the constant need to decrease the complexity of operations for employees. All these subjects and more were addressed at this VLCM, HP, and ShoreTel event.
There was certainly a lot of compelling information shared with those who attended, and there are plenty of reasons for any of the businesses present to take a shot at working the technologies into their infrastructure.
