Networking Field Day

Networking Field Day covers the entire enterprise networking industry

Unlike trade shows, conferences, or any other event in the enterprise networking space- Networking Field Day is a uniquely focused event, featuring up to 6 presenting companies, and 12 independent thought leaders.

Networking Field Day is an in-person, and live-streaming event that is held twice per year. We bring together the best independent thought leaders and companies within the networking space to discuss advancing technology, and core issues surrounding the networking enterprise IT space.

The event is held as a presentation, but also as an open discussion between our panel of delegates, and the presenters. Allowing the audience outside to hear important questions asked and answered in real time by leading professionals in the industry.

Topics Covered

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
