Field Trip to F5
Register early to secure your spot for this very popular event! Space is limited and this event tends to fill early!
Come and join us for an informative and interesting field trip to a cutting-edge technology company in our own backyard! IEEE Spokane Section Members & Students and accompanying guests (spouses/significant others are encouraged to attend - please rsvp accordingly so we can have a head count) are invited to tour F5 Networks, the Liberty Lake company that has developed the BIG-IP application delivery controllers.
These popular devices are positioned in front of Web and application servers, balancing traffic and performing compute-intensive functions, such as encrypting and un-encrypting transmissions, screening traffic for security threats, maintaining open connections with servers, speeding the flow of traffic, and managing access to applications and data. The company is unique in the Spokane region for its cutting-edge research and development on x86, FPGA, and ASIC platforms, providing three levels of digital system development, as well as hardware product development utilizing electrical, computer and mechanical engineering. F5 Networks does its hardware development operations exclusively at the Liberty Lake location, employing much industrial test equipment that is fascinating to see in action.
This event will start with a participant meeting at the west entrance to the F5 building at 5:30 pm -- then will offer an introduction to F5 and its products, followed by tours of the exciting development labs and equipment the company features.
IEEE Spokane Section's own PACE Chair, Olga Mill, will be you hosting this tour!
Pizza dinner will be provided. If you would like gluten free or vegetarian option, please note that in your registration.
