After attending the Interop 2007 show in family-friendly Las Vegas from May 21 through May 24, I’m hard-pressed to report any major news in the wireless networking space.
One of the most common questions encountered from press and vendors alike was, “So, what did you think of the show, what’s the big news?” With the exception of some product announcements around .11n compliant access points and some capacity increases in the controller offerings among WLAN vendors, technological advances were few and far between, however, there were some notable moments:
Enterprise mesh. Muni mesh? No, enterprise mesh. This is the idea of using mesh technology; wirelessly linking various access points in a WLAN is applicable to the enterprise. Think wide-area deployments outdoors or in non-traditional locations (like warehouses, shipping docks, and the like) where an existing wired infrastructure does not exist. I’ll be keeping an eye on vendors’ announcements around this technology (and watching the progression of this technology from Colubris, Meru Networks, and Aruba Networks) since I think this is a key ingredient in creating the ubiquitous mobile network.
