Technical update proves a hit with north-east IT professionals

arrowdawn-tech-updateNorth-east IT specialists have benefited from a special event hosted by Arrowdawn.

A total of 35 people attended the recent technical update, Connecting to the Network in a Mobile World, which was held at the Gordon Highlanders Museum in Aberdeen.

Speakers included Robert Price, head of technical strategy, partner and commercial team at Cisco, and Richard Moir, technical director at Arrowdawn, with both providing expert insight into global business communications giant Cisco’s technology and strategy.

Richard Moir said: “The event exceeded our expectations in terms of the turnout and the feedback we received from customers that attended; they really appreciated the fact that Arrowdawn had taken the initiative to bring these technical update sessions back to Aberdeen.

“The content was extremely relevant and created a lot of talking points in terms of how customers can take advantage of new technologies, such as 802.11ac wave 2, without first requiring significant investment in upgrading their underlying network infrastructure to support it.

“The event also highlighted the level of innovation, functionality and added value that comes with Cisco technology that many customers haven’t fully realised within the existing infrastructure. It also focused on future developments such as Cisco IWAN, which utilises intelligence within the network’s devices to optimise a customer’s application performance over WAN.

“We would like to commend the role the Gordon Highlanders Museum and its staff played in the running of the event. The venue possessed excellent facilities and the staff were extremely friendly and very flexible to ensure the event was a great success.”

Three separate technical sessions explored connecting to the mobile world, innovations in switching, and the new WAN for the mobile world – covering 802.11ac, HDX, CMX, Analytics, Cisco Hyperlocation, Cisco Instant Access, Converged Access, mGig and Cisco IWAN.
