Nashville Cisco Users Group

Being in the Nashville area for the last 18 months, I figured it was about time to start getting some social networking processes started in my industry.

I did some looking, and found the Cisco Nashville Users Group. So, I joined.  I haven’t been to a meeting yet, but March’s meeting sounds really interesting. See agenda below. I may joine the Java User Group as well, but haven’t decided if I can commit to that much time yet.

MARCH 2008 NCUG MEETING: The March 2008 NCUG meeting will occur on a THURSDAY! (gasp). This meeting will occur on Thursday March 13th 2008 from 5pm-7pm Central time. It will be hosted by AT&T and will be on the topic of 3G broadband aircards connected to Cisco routers. Dinner and a free AT&T Blackberry door prize will be provided by AT&T, and additional free book door prizes will be provided by Wiley and Cisco Press.

The title of the presentation is

"Cisco High Speed Wireless Interface Card and AT&T Network Services"

The agenda should be approximately as follows:

Dinner and Meet and Greet @ 5pm

Introductions and open discussion @ approx 5:30pm

Presenter Title Topic Time
Gary Weatherford AT&T Systems Engineer GSM 3G Network Overview 15 minutes

    Hey man!

    Long time no speak. Have you really been in town 18 months? Anyway, it would be great to actually meet you in person – I haven’t been to a Cisco meeting in over a year. I keep saying every month that I am going to make the next one, but something always happens. Anyway, let me know when it get’s closer to time if you think you will make it.

    Scott
    oh yeah, check out what I have been working on:

    Hey Scott!! Long time, man! Heh… yeah… 18 months. Gosh, has it been that long??

    Yeah, I’m planning on going to the March Cisco UG meeting.

    Love the xpresslearn site. You have really gotten down to business on dynamips. Every time I want to test it, I get distracted with other things.

    Last I heard, Dynamips only supported 7200 routers (and maybe a 3600). I’m really impressed with the supported images and modules it supports. Sounds like I need to just get to it.

    Thanks for the comment! Let’s stay in touch!

    Aaron,

    Did you ever make it to a meeting?

    Hi Matt! Yes, I did make it to the AT&T meeting with their 3G network. I did like the social networking going on before the presentation. The presentation was good, and the food was terrific.

    I haven’t been back. It seems, the meetings are during times when I’m traveling, or I don’t get the notices.

    I’ll have to find out why the emails aren’t coming in to me.

    Thanks for bringing this up! 🙂
