Interop is the longest running "show" in the networking space, but it didn't not start as a "show" at all. Dan Lynch, the founder of Interop, joins us at the History of Networking to talk about how Interop really started (hint, it's in the name). One important lesson to learn through this discussion: it is not enough to have standards or open source; in the realm of network protocols, being able to prove multiple vendors can work together is important, too.
