Who is headed to Extreme Connect Conference this coming April?


All,

I'm really happy we are getting our first Extreme User Conference this April in Arizona. I've been asking for this for years, as I get tired of being surrounded by Cisco customers at other conferences 😉 They are planning to have a solid birds of a feather (via vertical). UNC Chapel Hill will be well represented there as we've been a Cabletron then Enterasys now Extreme customer for over 2 decades. What other higher ed folks planning on attending? For the high education folks, it would be great if we could arrange a dinner together at some point. My email is r@unc.edu. Feel free to email me directly and I'll keep a list.

Hi Ryan,
I just got off a call with the group coordinating communications for this event where we discussed what messaging would go here on The Hub. Looks like you started some of that for us 🙂

I've enjoyed putting faces and names together at the partner conferences over the past two years and am looking forward to attending ExtremeConnect in April. It's nice meeting our community members (and fellow Extreme enthusiasts) at events like these.

My self and our VP of Ops will be attending. This is long overdue and we are also looking forward to being there to meet other Extreme users but to also represent the fact Extreme can be used to deliver carrier class Ethernet services. We have not set details yet but plan to either come in early or stay a few days later... If we can't get traction in a carrier or ISP group our next logical group to hook up with is large campus users....
Hopefully I'll get some more responses as I posted this on a holiday week.

I added some more categories to trigger new notifications.
I'm interested, but Arizona is a long way from Perth, and it's also in the middle of school holidays, which is when we get our upgrades done. I did make it to Extreme NOW in Melbourne which was good.

Well, Extreme ANZ have very kindly helped out with flights and accommodation so after a mad rush to renew my passport I will be coming 🙂
I'm with Sinclair College in Dayton, Oh and planning to attend. We have also went through the Cabletron, Enterasys, Extreme migration.
Bump. Come on folks 🙂 This is going to be a great event.
