The first two weeks of December, 2019, were special for us here at Ixia, a Keysight Business. Thanks to the tireless efforts of host and MC Daniel Bogdanoff, not only did we have a $50k Network Makeover sweepstakes, but we also had a daily live broadcast featuring a new character, our IT everyman PacketBoi with his Topic of the Day. The good news is that if you missed the daily broadcasts, they are all archived for you (see below for links).

The further good news is particularly good for Eric Caverly of Irving, Texas. He won the Grand Prize, a $50k Network Makeover. Eric, we’ll be in touch with you shortly. Cue Every1's a Winner.

Here are links to the daily broadcasts:

Never fear, there will be more good stuff with PacketBoi in the days and weeks ahead.
