EMC World 2013, the final countdown has started!

Discussing the challenges of Long Distance Links

On ECN (EMC Community Network) together with Jon Klaus, a colleague of mine, I started a new “Ask the Expert” discussion about long distance links and the challenges you might be facing there. I would like to invite you to join the discussion there:


If you’d like to discuss anything here, you’re welcome to do so on ECN, but if you also like Twitter there’s a treat for you as we will be having a LIVE “TweetChat” on Monday November the 26th from 19:00-21:00 CET (1PM-3PM EST, 10AM-12AM PST). The URL you can use to filter out the discussion will be http://tweetchat.com/room/EMCATE.
An earlier anouncements about the TweetChat on Thursday the 22nd proved to be badly chosen because of Thanksgiving, a national holiday in the USA. We didn’t see this coming. Our appologies. I will be online on Thursday the 22nd anyway to welcome anyone who didn’t see the new anouncement.

Let’s join the discussion!
