This week a lot of the European technical team is refreshing its skills with a training course at our office near Stuttgart, Germany. The field presales guys should return to the coalface primed with new skills in Advanced TCA, SS7 and Media Gateways. For myself, it's useful to get some hands-on with the ATCA hardware, which I so far haven't had much contact with. Our office in Renningen is a centre for R&D for our Diva and Media Gateway products, and also houses sales and support for Germany, and it's always nice to meet up with old friends.
