Networking Field Day 14
Its always a privilege to participate in Tech Field Day events and Network Field Day 14 in January 18–20, 2017 in Silicon Valley.

Without doubt, you will find the most exciting vendors appearing here (and on Packet Pushers, of course) and they will give their best pitch to a group of people just like you.
Six vendors so far, Barefoot Networks, Big Switch, Kentik, Nyansa, Riverbed and Silverpeak. Its going to range from silicon, analytics, security and, the hottest networking technology, SD-WAN.
