Keeping Up with Network Backbone and Endpoint Traffic Growth

Thursday, February 14 | 10:15AM–11:00AM | Palm B/E
Session Type: Professional Development
What are you doing to meet the exponential growth of network traffic? Are you moving from gigabit to 10-gigabit capacity on the backbone? Are you successfully increasing capacity to university and public education endpoints to gigabit or greater? Is your approach to increase capacity with network-owned fiber or to contract with telcos, or a combination of both? Panelists will share their experiences with and ideas about how a state education network can meet the growing bandwidth demands of their customers.
