G’Day from Down Under, coming to you from Cisco Live at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre overlooking the Yarra River. And what a whirlwind three days it has been – quite active and very busy. And according to customers, it has been “crackin’.” It has been a truly fun experience sharing Cisco’s collaboration story which includes the four pillars (social, mobile, virtual and visual) with Australian customers, executives, analysts and news media. In particular, there has been lots of excitement about BYOD and virtualization – both desktop and content virtualization. Read More »
So you think you know what BYOD is? Think again!
If you’re a manufacturer you’ve probably heard of BYOD, or ‘Bring Your Own Device’. You know that more and more devices are proliferating throughout the organization. You also know that security is a big issue: How do you stop folks accessing sensitive systems, how do you protect Intellectual Property, and how do you prevent a disastrous shutdown caused by a device either intentionally or unintentionally?
Well, these are only some of the issues -- and they’re rarely addressed by a ‘Good-Enough Network’. Cisco’s BYOD is different -- it looks at the whole picture. It’s not just about your wireless network -- although the Cisco offerings are better than most! It’s about an holistic approach to BYOD. That covers the plant, IT, the LAN and fixed wired network and the wireless network too. All aspects.

The Connected Life Exchange (CLE) Blog is not just another Cisco blog that talks about the company’s products and services. It’s a collection of stories, including a new documentary series, “The Network Effect,” that illustrates how service provider innovation of the “largest and most reliable machine on the planet”—the telecom network—drives economic development and improves quality of life, especially in developing regions.
A little more than a year old, this blog has one of the best visitor retention rates of all Cisco corporate blogs (as measured by ‘bounce rate,’ and ‘time on site’). On March 20th, BtoB Magazine recognized the Connected Life Exchange at the Social Media Marketing Awards, remarking:
“The whole package is refreshingly non-promotional and often fascinating. Cisco continues to innovate in the suddenly red-hot field of content marketing with an approach to thought leadership that emphasizes actual thinking.”
Watch this video highlighting The Network Effect to get a little taste of what this award-winning blog is all about:

On March 15, Cisco announced our intent to acquire NDS Group Ltd., a leading provider of video software and content security solutions that enable service providers and media companies to securely deliver and monetize new video entertainment experiences.
The acquisition of NDS will complement and accelerate the delivery of Videoscape, Cisco’s comprehensive platform that enables service providers and media companies to deliver next-generation entertainment experiences. Acquiring NDS will broaden Cisco’s opportunities in the service provider market, expanding its reach into emerging markets, such as China and India, where NDS has an established customer footprint.

It’s tax time here in the United States and after handing Uncle Sam a check with way more dollar signs than I had hoped, I decided that I should leave next year’s tax preparation to the professionals. But with so many options out there, who can I trust to maximize my refund and help me avoid the dreaded audit? I could go with a retail tax franchise that handles most tax situations. Or I could hire a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), a seasoned tax professional that passed the rigorous CPA exam and is certified to handle any tax situations. You can probably guess which one I’m leaning towards.
Whether you’re looking for someone to help with your taxes or your networking issues, we all have choices when it comes to selecting a service provider. We want to be ensured that the company we hire has the appropriate level of certification, first hand experience with our issue, and not only gets the job done but gets the job done right.
