SpringTech 2015: Portsmouth, NH
An absolute beautiful day at our annual SpringTech event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire! The day started off strong with attendees showing up early to get a great seat as they anticipated presentations by Brocade, ShoreTel, and Lifesize! With registration consisting of many brand new faces and a healthy mix of familiar ones, attendees lined up for a delicious buffet style gourmet seafood or chicken lunch.
Joe Spampinato, President of CDVS, took off with a brief introduction of who CDVS is and a congratulations to Jim O’Malley for his 10 years with the company. Tom Beggan, Channel Systems Engineer at Brocade, took primary focus in the room with a strong presentation regarding Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Brocade’s innovative strides in networking.
From there, ShoreTel’s very own Jeff Green (Solution Architect) dived into a presentation as dessert was served. Jeff discussed the new world of VoIP and Unified Communications. There is no longer a need for all equipment to reside exclusively on premise, ShoreTel offers amazing technology to incorporate the solution into a premise, cloud, virtualized, or hybrid environment. Jeff’s great presentation sparked many questions among those in the crowd.
Erik Wright, Sr. Regional Sales Manager at Lifesize, was last but not least to add to the excellent content delivered. Erik presented the future of video conferencing as he dialed in his peer from Austin, Texas to a live video call for the audience to see. A high energy presentation with a lot of audience participation and laughs made it an excellent was to deliver the future of Lifesize.
The event ended with raffles (Visa gift cards, Logitech Web cams, NH Liquor Store gift cards) and questions as attendees lingered around to talk with vendors. All in all, this was another successful event and CDVS wants to thank each and everyone attendee and vendor who made this possible. We look forward to continuing to make your organizations operate more efficiently.
