Reviews and Comments...


"Thank you for a great seminar. The presentation covered all the topics we wanted and it was very useful to have Helen and Dave with their in-depth technical knowledge."

"The presentation covered all the “grey” areas and the all participants found it very interesting."

"This seminar will definitely help us to design better and more reliable networks. The new products presentation was also a great addition. We found some new modules really interesting and I’m sure we will used them in our future projects."

"One of the more relaxed yet informative days I’ve had in a course."

"It was a good opportunity to understand many products as well as the AS-I system abilities and limitations and thoroughly thought it a worthy day."
