Event Overview
Interop Day One
Interop Day Two: Theme
Interop Day Two: Sessions
Microsoft's MOM

As the second day of this conference concludes, the main theme of these sessions begins to emerge -- Focusing on business by achieving sustainable revenues, controlling costs, taking care of customers and using technology to work reliably on a 24 by 7 basis. The hype of e-business and Internet strategies is still echoing in the connected networking community but at a more subdued and reasoned tone. Several bright, informed IT professionals I talked with at the sessions and events that lasted late into the evening, were looking for new opportunities. They told me that their companies have gone out of business or have significantly reduced operations.

I noted more attendees arrived late Monday as the expo is set to begin on Tuesday at 9 AM. The frequent Bill Gates' opening keynote now featured Craig Barrett, Intel's CEO. He spoke about Architectures for the Internet and said that Intel will focus on the communications industry migration to a packet-based network, a driving force for the continued Internet build-out. Microsoft's British led team introduced "MOM", at one of the evening's major events. It was a packed house at the Las Vegas Hilton.
