Upcoming VPN-related Events

RSA Conference 2008

FutureNet Expo 2007
Boston, MA / April 14-17, 2008
FutureNet is the new name for the venerable MPLScon. It now covers much more than MPLS by including all WAN technologies such as wide-area Ethernet and wireless services, convergence over the WAN, intra- and inter-carrier issues, and much more.

Interop Spring 2008
Las Vegas, NV / April 27 - May 2, 2008
Probably the largest networking show in the world, this conference has a sizable show floor for vendors and a large, fast-paced educational track. Because of the large (and growing) attendance, many VPNC members regularly exhibit at Interop.
