If this is the first time you're attending a CEDPA conference in recent years, the Internet Room is a special room that has been set up to demonstrate examples of multi-vendor solutions to Internet connectivity. A very popular feature of the past two CEDPA conferences, this "Internet Technology Lab" is connected directly to the Internet using a T-1 line and equipment from several different vendors, all interconnected and working cooperatively to provide Internet connectivity and support. The equipment includes servers, PC, Macintosh and Unix computers, hubs, and routers on an Ethernet network. Operating systems in use include BSD Unix, Windows NT, Windows 95, and Mac/OS.

Conference attendees have the opportunity to review the end-to-end solutions, from the wire in the wall, to some of the software that can be used to access the vast information on the Internet.

The Internet Room will be open throughout the conference so attendees can experience the Internet in the context of the many other Internet-related breakout sessions and the vendor show. Oasis South.
