“I thought future:net was the smartest of the networking conferences I’ve attended this year. The speakers were excellent — especially the customer and end-user stories, which provided valuable insight…it reminded me a lot of the first years of the Open Network Summit — the brain trust of the industry would attend, and that made it a must-attend show.
Craig Matsumoto, Managing Editor, SDX Central
 “A note to say what a privilege it was to participate in the future:net event. Seriously, absolutely top notch event that was free of the embuggerances that make large conferences such hard work. Congratulations on pulling it together and we hope for another invitation when it comes around again.”
Greg Ferro and Ethan Banks, Co-founders of Packet Pushers

We live in a hyper connected world – everything of value, from the apps, to the cloud, to the devices, to the users, is all closely tethered to one another. The network has become the critical platform that connects everything reliably and securely. IT must also evolve to support this new ecosystem of engagement. Ultimately, a lot has to happen for the network to deliver what customers need: a seamless and secure experience.

That’s why we’re looking forward to future:net 2017 – taking place in just a few weeks! Technical leaders across different industries will highlight their digital journeys and current state of their networking solutions, while networking leaders at the cutting-edge of new technologies will showcase what’s in store for the future.

This year, notable speakers such as Peter DeSantis, Vice President of Infrastructure Leadership at Amazon, will share about the necessary and crucial evolution of networking (for 2016 session topics, see recordings).

Let’s get ready for the digital era together. Join us this year on August 30th – 31st at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas. future:net is a complimentary, invite-only event and space is limited. Request an invite today and to learn more, please visit the future:net website.
