"Putting Performance First" is the theme of the seventh NetQoS® Symposium to be held April 10-12, 2007, at the Barton Creek Conference Center and Resort in Austin, Texas. The Symposium is open to NetQoS customers and network professionals who wish to learn the latest trends and best practices in network performance management.
"Putting Performance First" addresses the need to move from a fault-centric to a performance-centric approach to network management, especially as network professionals become increasingly responsible for application service delivery.

Session topics, presented by NetQoS technology experts, partners, and customers, will cover timely issues related to MPLS, VoIP, QoS, WAN optimization, change management, and virus detection.
