What is InteropNet?

Unique to Interop, the InteropNet is an industry-leading example of a heterogeneous, temporary, volunteer-run network.

The InteropNet provides high-speed network connectivity to the Interop attendees and exhibitors and supports the Expo floor, Conference sessions and wireless access.

The InteropNet strives for 100 percent reliability and zero downtime. In addition, the InteropNet offers unique educational opportunities for the team of volunteers and the networking community at large.

As a multi-vendor showcase, the InteropNet delivers practical answers to today's IT challenges. Each year, volunteers from leading companies dedicate their time and energy to come together and build this system from the ground-up.
