Terry Slattery at Interop New York 2013


Terry Slattery, Principal Consultant at Chesapeake NetCraftsmen and CCIE #1026, will be a speaker at Interop on Wednesday Oct 2, 2013.

His session will be on “How to Keep Video from Blowing Up Your Network”.



Everyone expects video traffic to continue to grow within the enterprise, but for those running the communications network, this trend is potentially dangerous: Especially in the case of ad hoc video usage like Skype and YouTube, end user video usage is not being centrally rolled out, managed, and controlled. But even when video is a part of a controlled rollout—say, of a Unified Communications portal like Microsoft Lync—you may not have a clear sense of how much video will actually be used. So do you overprovision the network, possibly devoting more resources than are needed? Or do you risk a situation where video traffic swamps the network and hinders the performance of mission-critical applications? In this session, we’ll offer suggestions to help you walk the fine line of provisioning for video in a world where video’s future is still in flux.
