Track 1: Intense Connectivity, Dense Deployments and Seasonal Spikes

Demands for wireless communication keep growing, and the applications keep promising more. More and more applications are integrated into sports venues, and faculty are interacting with large student populations in real-time. After years of delivery, your campus peers have developed and deployed solutions to address these challenges. Come hear the stories of successful deployments that have withstood the test of time and continue to provide for students/staff/faculty in the most difficult of circumstances.

Track 2: The Ever-Evolving World of Telephony

With new technologies, long-answered questions rise up again. A move from analog to VoIP, from handsets to softphones, involve much more than a technology change. Who owns the phone? Where does the data reside? 911? Who owns the telephone number? Who uses voicemail or e-mail anymore? How can older telecom funding models help inform the IT funding models of today? This track will focus on how communication services of today differ from those of yesterday, and how to make the best of both. How do the policies of yesterday stay relevant when everyone communicates in a different manner? And how can today's professional support them all?
