Cisco had a great show at the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) Meeting and Tradeshow in Austin Texas, May 5-7, demonstrating market leading solutions that overcome the barrier of distance while improving the patient experience.
The problem of monitoring patient rooms can be supported by Cisco platform solution with easy to use features and capabilities found in Cisco Virtual Patient Observation solution. The solution can accommodate needs ranging from basic, to enhanced, to advanced features such as work flow integration, to support a flexible range of needs for usage and policies of hospitals. The solution is easy to use and provides for patient privacy needs, while increasing efficiency. In these short youtube videos, Ray Cooke, Cisco Director Advanced Services, and Matt Tyler with Wachter, a Cisco partner demonstrate Cisco Virtual Patient Observation solution at the ATA 2013 conference, Austin, Texas. Demo Part 2, Part 3:

Jerry Bruckheimer, one of the world’s most successful and innovative film producers. Bruckheimer is using Cisco TelePresence to change the collaboration game in Hollywood by bringing on-set and remote directors, editors, and talent together to produce award winning films.
In Bruckheimer’s upcoming film Lone Ranger, he took Cisco TelePresence EX90s behind the scenes to help with movie production. Armed with life-like, instantaneous video collaboration, Bruckheimer was able to review film dailies with editors and post-production staff in Los Angeles while he was on-set in New Mexico. Once location shooting had wrapped, several more units played an important role in post-production.

Update 2 5/9/2013:
Microsoft has released a “Microsoft fix it” as a temporary mitigation for this issue on systems which require IE8. At this time, multiple sites have been observed hosting pages which exploit this vulnerability. Users of IE8 who cannot update to IE9+ are urged to apply the Fix It immediately.
An exploit for this bug is now publicly available within the metasploit framework. Users of the affected browser should consider updating to IE9+ or using a different browser until a patch is released. Given the nature of this vulnerability additional exploitation is likely.
At the end of April a Watering Hole–style attack was launched from a United States Department of Labor website. Many are theorizing that this attack may have been an attempt to use one compromised organization to target another. Visitors to specific pages hosting nuclear-related content at the Department of Labor website were also receiving malicious content loaded from the domain dol.ns01.us. Initially it appeared that this attack used CVE-2012-4792 to compromise vulnerable machines; however, Microsoft is now confirming that this is indeed a new issue. This issue is being designated CVE-2013-1347 and is reported to affect all versions of Internet Explorer 8.

Cisco’s server power engineering team recently compared the Cisco UCS 5108 Blade Server Chassis with B200 M3 blade servers against HP’s BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure and HP ProLiant BL460c Gen8 blade servers.
The results weren’t surprising internally, but they might surprise you. The main findings were:
- The Cisco UCS 5108 enclosure configured with Cisco UCS B200 M3 blades achieved a 6.3% higher performance-to-power ratio than the HP BladeSystem c7000 with HP ProLiant BL460c blades, using with similarly configured hardware, BIOS, and OS settings.
- At a 70% target load, the Cisco UCS blade solution consumed 6.5% less power than the HP ProLiant blade solution.
- At the maximum target load, the Cisco UCS blade solution consumed 192 watts (W), or 7.2% less power, than the equivalently configured HP BladeSystem solution.
- The Cisco UCS blade solution consumed 167 watts, or 17.4% less power, while idle than the equivalently configured HP BladeSystem solution: a difference equivalent to the power consumed by three idle HP ProLiant BL460c Gen8 blades.
- Including the power consumed by a pair of redundant Fabric Interconnects, the Cisco UCS blade solution consumes less power than an equivalent HP BladeSystem solution.
The complete results are posted on Cisoc.com (link to download the entire white paper) so that you can replicate the results independently.
