The INTERFACE-Anchorage show is quickly becoming one of the Tour’s largest regional shows. If you happened to read Todd Rychecky’s post from last year’s show, the show recorded an impressive 350 attendees. This year there were over 450, with delegates from the military, local government, natural resources and education. The attendees were super excited to see Opengear back, and wondered what was new. Since last year, when we released the ACM5504-5-LX-I, we have introduced our award winning IM7200. It has quickly become the most advanced out-of-band management device on the market today. With the recent addition of Verizon to Anchorage, cellular is becoming more and more relevant in IT, especially in Alaska where it is much more convenient and cost effective, due to the nature of how spread out some of the businesses are. No pun intended.
If you have not been to INTERFACE-Anchorage or to Alaska, I would definitely encourage you to check both out. Since the show was so busy, there wasn’t much of an opportunity to get out and see much of the amazing scenery. One of the local IT professionals that attended the show was kind enough to take a few of us out to do some sightseeing before boarding the plane home. I have to tell you, it was amazing. It was still a little cold, but one summer will definitely have to go back and do some fishing.
Interested in attending one of our shows, please let us know, would love to meet and find out how you use your Opengear?
