Interop: Making A Mobile Enterprise

Cutting-edge trends in enterprise mobility will be spotlighted at the Mobile Business Conference at Interop in Las Vegas, May 17 - 21.
Beyond Smartphones

Although smartphones and enterprise apps grab a lot of attention, the Mobile Business Conference also will have plenty of products, discussion panels, and expert advice on wireless LANs, unified communications, unified network management, and how fixed-mobile convergence can affect the bottom line. Skype has embraced the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) in order to make waves in the enterprise market, and Stefan Oberg, VP of Skype for Business, will be giving a keynote speech about how savvy businesses can save time and money by implementing consumer-grade technology that has been adapted for business use.

Enterprise mobility will play a large role at Interop, but the conference will also have vendors, experts, and panel discussion on all the hot topics for IT professionals. Along with the traditional elements of IT infrastructure, this year's conference will place an increased emphasis on emerging segments such as virtualization management, and will cut through the hype enveloping cloud computing.
