Tame the IP address space beast with a DDI solution

Presenters: Ski Kacoroski

Are you losing track of which IP addresses are assigned to what devices?
Does you spend too much time managing your IP address space? If so, you should look at an DDI solution that integrates IP address management, DNS, and DHCP services. This talk will discuss the rationale for these solutions and then demonstrate their principles using the Efficient IP solution that is currently implemented by the Northshore School District.
