We are 'LIVE' for 3 rounds at Interop Las Vegas

Interop Las Vegas 2012

Its seems that the story of Interop so far from the press releases I have seen and the ones under embargo, it's about the cloud. If it's not about the cloud it's about bigger is better in the core, the race for speed and density.

I was planning on writing about the news from HP & F5, plus the new upgrades and updates to the HP 10500 Series Switch. But the HP USB I was given with all of the documents will not load on my HP laptop. So we will follow up today and get the info another way.

News came out already that Cisco nemesis Huawei to demo 96-port 100G Ethernet switch http://shar.es/2dU1t , which is a good story on Cisco Subnet. But already people are asking me who will really put it in their data center core over Cisco, Juniper, Arista Networks or HP? I think its going to be a hard sell for Huawei.

But more updates as the days go on, we have 3 days, lots of vendors and the all-important "Larry Awards" for best Interop presentation on the show floor.
