Attendance at Interop 2008 in Las Vegas was up according the show’s sponsors, but vendors complained they saw fewer people on the floor. Still, the economy probably self-qualified attendees since vendors revealed a higher buying interest among those visiting booths.

The unspoken prayer on many lips was that 2008 would be the year when enterprise WLAN equipment sales would finally take off. Three major trends emerged from this year’s show: green is in, 802.11n is the future, and where you work is who you are.
