Hands-on Labs NEW this year at Hot Topics!
We will have two hands-on lab sessions– HP Networking in the morning and Meru (wireless) in the afternoon. These are great labs to dive in and get some hands-on experience with the technologies. CAD’s engineers, along with system engineers from HP and Meru, will be on hand to show you the ropes.

  • HP Networking –Hardening the Network with PCM+
    This hands-on lab will combine two hot topics; network management tools and management security. Participants will use ProCurve Manager Plus tools to push best practices security configurations to switches in an exercise to learn about automating tasks for security. Recommended for network managers currently using HP ProCurve switches.
  • Meru Networks – Zero to Wireless in Two Hours
    Our wireless lab will show participants how to use Meru to go from zero to wireless in two hours.
