It's about Best Practices. And, that was the topic for the meeting in Dallas last week. I attended, on behalf of SIPquest, the Client company. As the newbie on the team, I took on the responsibility of leading a team to define the Interoperability Best Practices Prime job description. Great fun.
I also spoke this past week with the folks at Chantry Networks, a division of Siemens, to discuss FMC, the context of MobileIGNITE and possible issues for folks in this enterprise WiFI-centric business. It was wonderful seeing my old friends Brian Collie and Bob Myers.
