Explore the power of next generation networking to transform education and research
At Networkshop 2023 you can discover more about the networking revolution, while also contributing to your continued professional development programme.
This year’s Networkshop 2023 is for anyone in further education and skills, higher education or research who is seeking to better understand how technology can improve the learning and research environment.
Whether you’re an IT decision-maker or in a non-technical role, this event will show how new developments in secure, sustainable next generation networking can help you and your institution. And if you're a research leader or a CTO looking for a cloud-first research infrastructure and a focus on trusted open access to secure research environments, Networkshop 2023 is for you.
Taking place 14-15 June at Nottingham Trent University, as well as June 16 online, it’s a great opportunity to discover and be inspired by current best practice, the latest thinking and great innovation. You’ll come away equipped to implement new ideas and influence change in your own organisation.
And I’m very pleased to say that the CPD Certification Service has recognised the learning value of the event by confirming that attendance at Networkshop 2023 will count towards your CPD programme.
Secure, sustainable next generation networking
As well as showcasing and sharing technology-based solutions and successes, this year’s event will examine the impact of new developments in 5G, the industrial internet of things (IIoT), edge computing and hybrid cloud infrastructures. Set against a backdrop of cyber-security, budgetary and net zero challenges, these are the technologies that are redefining how education is delivered.
At Networkshop23 you’ll be able to:
Explore first-hand the technologies that are changing IT infrastructure
Key topics including software-defined networking (SDN), 5G/6G, secure access service edge (SASE), machine learning applications and virtual desktop infrastructures (VDIs) will be covered in thought-provoking sessions and practical hands-on workshops led by sector and industry experts.
Find out how Jisc is working to make these technologies available to our members and customers
Together with Simon Farr, director of innovation and IT at Jisc, I’ll be detailing the key developments and innovations that are enabling Jisc to layer new services such as cyber-security, 5G, VDI and edge computing into the core Janet Network service - and how we are working with industry-leading companies like AWS to create a unique multi-tenanted solution for the sector to share.
Learn how hybrid cloud solutions can deliver the services you need
In partnership with AWS, Jisc is creating a hybrid cloud solution that will bring key teaching assets and services such as advanced analytics, augmented reality and VDI right to the edge of members' networks. We’ll show you how to balance the benefits of cloud and edge computing.
See how to smarten up your campus
The IIOT is changing the way we improve the student experience and sustainably manage our resources. Simon Farr will present Jisc’s service-led approach to delivering on the promise of smart campuses with Honeywell - a global leader in smart buildings - and chair a panel debate with AWS, Cradlepoint and Honeywell to discuss the art of the possible.
Discover how Jisc is extending connectivity across the campus and beyond
We’ll look at how to implement connectivity in creative ways: for example, Jisc’s eduroam service is set to deliver seamless access to information not only campus-wide but across a range of new sectors and locations.
Hear from experts from across the research and innovation sector
The event will showcase demos of some of the innovative tools that we are building to help the research community in their day-to-day work, including new ways to track research outputs, manage costs and optimise equipment use.
Learn how colleges and universities are rising to the challenge of sustainability in networking
Real-life case studies will highlight the next steps that your own organisation could take to meet the net zero imperative and how digital delivery of infrastructure can help achieve sustainability targets.
Get practical advice on safeguarding your network
Everyone in the organisation has a responsibility for cyber security, especially in a hybrid cloud world; we will look at the best ways to ensure robust defences across the sector.
Find the best way to put forward a business case for investment
We’ll show you how you can achieve your priorities and help your institution thrive in the evolving digital infrastructure landscape by leveraging the latest technologies to drive digital transformation.
Who should attend?
Networkshop 2023 aims to keep you ahead of the game by equipping you to respond rapidly to the increasing demands of an agile, blended learning environment – no matter where your institution is on its digital transformation journey.
Networkshop 2023 will be especially useful to you if your role involves IT or cyber-security at any level from network engineer to CTO. It will also be of interest to non-technical staff – principals, vice principals, heads of business transformation, heads of department, estate managers, HR, training and development leads – who need to understand the impact that new technologies can have on improving the learning environment.
And the whole event is CPD-accredited, making attendance even more worthwhile.
