Time is money. And the more time it takes to deploy and provision devices on your network, the more costly it is for your organization.
On August 21, join our experts for a deep-dive exploration of Cisco Prime Infrastructure, a critical part of the Cisco Unified Access solution, and learn how Cisco Prime Infrastructure can speed the deployment and configuration of your unified access environment. Cisco Prime Infrastructure reduces errors and difficult-to-diagnose configuration issues, through a logical, simple-to-use workflow.
During this detailed session, you’ll hear and see a live demo, and learn how Cisco is reinventing the way that network devices are deployed.
As part of the Cisco Unified Access solution, Cisco Prime Infrastructure delivers a single management point of view. It offers comprehensive lifecycle management of wired and wireless access, campus and branch networks, complete visibility into end-user connectivity, and application performance assurance.

Cisco UCS supports many compute nodes, in a data center there most likely will be more than one UCS system, managing hundreds of compute nodes. These UCS domains will probably have very similar requirements for VLANs, VSANs, vNIC and vHBA templates, Service Profiles templates, boot polices and etc.
Are you tired of cutting and pasting, or clicking until your fingers are calloused over? Are you trying to duplicate or synchronize settings across all your UCS domains? Do you lose track of the changes you made and where? Not to worry UCS PowerTool to the rescue. UCS PowerTool is the Cisco UCS PowerShell Cmdlet library. UCS PowerTool 220.127.116.11 has just been released, download it and make sure to get the release notes and the user guide.
UCS Components and configuration are defined by an XML schema and this schema is used to generate the majority of the UCS PowerTool Cmdlets. However there are a several special Cmdlets that take UCS PowerTool from a great set of cmdlets to a must have cmdlet library for all UCS administrators. The cmdlets I’m focusing on today are Sync-UcsManagedObject and Compare-UcsManagedObject.

My first DEFCON was DEFCON Three, held at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas. The computer security conference scene was much, much smaller back then, but DEFCON had already become THE security conference of the year. Since that time I’ve continued to regularly attend DEFCON, and over the years I have collected some very fond memories of summer computer security conventions past. I remember vividly when the Cult of the Dead Cow celebrated their release of Back Orifice. I recall battling the Las Vegas heat in the large, “air-conditioned” tents at the Alexis Park Hotel. I remember when the NBC Dateline journalist was outed at DEFCON after planning to surreptitiously record attendees confessing to hacking crimes. I remember seeing the authorities hauling away a fake Automated Teller Machine (ATM) that had been installed in the Riviera. Fun times…

Earlier this week, our colleagues at Cox took the wraps off a beauty of a next-new version of personalized television, branded “Contour.” It’s a continuation of its service extensions earlier this year into screens “beyond the TV,” such as iPads, tablets, laptops, and smartphones.
Until Contour, the app was called “Cox TV Connect,” and offered a hundred or so linear channels. With the additions that shaped it into “Contour,” Cox customers get that plus a whole lot more — and I say that because it really is a whole lot more.
