Networking Field Day (NFD) focuses on wired network components, from the corporate campus the the data center to the WAN. Produced in association with Packet Pushers, NFD brings together the best independent thought leaders in the networking space to discuss pressing issues and technology advancements with key companies in the space.
We have produced Networking Field Day events since 2010, and now hold two such events per year. For 2013, NFD returns in the first and third quarter. Our 2013 Networking Field Day planning team includes Brandon Carroll, Greg Ferro, Ivan Pepelnjak, and Tom Hollingsworth, and we expect to see all four at these events!
With Packet Pushers, we also produce in-person and online Symposium events to present key networking technologies to a broader audience. This began with the OpenFlow Symposium, held in October of 2011, and includes a series of Virtual Symposium events with Cisco and Brocade.
If you would like to get involved with Networking Field Day, either as a delegate or sponsoring presenter, please contact us! We have pages for sponsors and delegates, including forms to use to get in touch.
Networking Field Day covers many diverse topics of interest to our delegates and their audience. In the past, companies have discussed the following areas:
- Ethernet switching in the datacenter and campus
- IP networking and protocols from the LAN to the Internet
- Network security, protection and monitoring
- Management and administration of networking devices
