Justin @ WISPAMERICA

I will be attending WISPAMERICA next week.

I will be a panelist on the Transitioning from a bridged to a routed network on Monday from 2:15-3:15
I will be moderating the Layering Redundancy across the network on Monday from 3:45-4:45
On Thursday I will be a panelist on Advanced BGP from 2:15-3:15

You can find me hanging around the Cambium Networks booth as a Certified Cambium Consultant offering free consultation for folks looking to integrate cambium into their network.  If you don’t see me just ask one of the Cambium team members to point me out.

I will also be happy to talk about peering with MidWest-IX and general ISP consulting as well.
