"We are now clearly seeing the shift in operators and enterprise of all sizes, towards a paradigm where they need fully programmable infrastructures, which are capable of supporting increasingly real-time services. The embrace of Open Source as a major piece of the solution stack is truly inspiring, as is watching the speed at which the resulting application developments happen," said Andrew McLachlan, VP Engineering of Inocybe Technologies. "Inocybe is ready to execute on our vision of uniting open networking, in step with this momentum."

Brady has over 20 years of experience as a Software Engineer.

We had an eventful week exhibiting at Interop ITX! After lots of great conversations, a well-attended presentation by our CEO M.H.

We are back in Las Vegas, this time at Interop ITX 2017, the rejuvenated version of Interop. As I have written in the past, Interop has a long history back to the mid-1980's and has reinvented itself many times. Interop ITX 2017 is the newest edition, with only paid attendees and no more free passes to the expo floor. UBM, the owner of Interop, intends to increase the quality of attendees, sessions and leads for exhibitors and sponsors.
