Just a reminder that there will be a follow-up roundtable session on
bandwidth management at the upcoming
EDUCAUSE conference. The roundtable is scheduled for Thursday, October 3,
from 4:45 to 6:10 in Room B-306.
Last year a number of participants had recently implemented Packeteer ...
my opening question for this
roundtable will be "so what's different this fall than last fall?" If
anyone has specific questions that they
would like to see posed, please let me know.
Best .. Al
