Next week Joya and I will head to Durham, New Hampshire to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL). Since 2010, we’ve served as the agency of record for this premier independent provider of conformance and interoperability testing services for the networking industry.
Founded in 1988, the UNH-IOL has worked with some of the world’s leading technology companies to introduce new, innovative products and services to market, while preparing the next generation of engineers. With a unique model of blending industry expertise with an educational mission, the lab employs more than 100 undergraduate and graduate students that gain hands-on experience with developing technologies such as Automotive Ethernet, Home Networking (think “Connected Home”) and the next generation Internet protocol, IPv6.
On Monday, September 16 from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. ET, Wireside will join industry and community leaders from across New Hampshire, distinguished UNH-IOL alumni, and current staff and students to commemorate the lab’s significant milestone. The event will feature interactive demonstrations of the latest technical advancements, tours of the UNH-IOL’s 32,000 square-foot facility, and remarks from special guests such senior vice president of engineering for Enterasys Networks, Dave Kjendal; UNH president, Mark Huddleston; and CEO and founder of QA Café, Joe McEachern. Erica Johnson, director of the UNH-IOL, and Amy Davies, UNH computer science student and UNH-IOL employee, will also address the audience.
If you’re a member of the press or analyst communities and are interested in attending the event to connect with the IT leaders of today and tomorrow, and learn about the UNH-IOL’s involvement with testing various cutting edge technologies, please let us know!
