The Internet of Everything fuels our daily lives, but leads to some new challenges in the networking space. Join us for this week’s episode of Engineers Unplugged as Damian Karlson (@sixfootdad) and Tom Hollingsworth (@networkingnerd) discuss the pros and cons of IPv6, firewalls, and the failure of 1970′s math. Watch and see:

Your network is going through rapid changes as your user and business requirements continue to evolve. Before long (if it’s not already happening), the edge of your network will more than likely transition to a high performing Gigabit desktop switching network plus a highly reliable Gigabit Wi-Fi (802.11ac) network. Cisco Converged Access is an innovative deployment mode that has been optimized to support both the Gigabit Ethernet based and the Gigabit Wi-Fi based edge as a single network with excellent scale, security, and performance.

Cloud is no longer a nascent market. The explosive growth of public-cloud providers —coupled with the relevance of the network in the delivery of cloud and IT services — has led many service providers (SPs) to treat this game-changing transition as a natural extension of their core business. While some SP cloud efforts have fallen short in customer demand and adoption, Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG) believes there are significant opportunities for SPs in the cloud. To succeed, SPs need to tackle the cloud market in conjunction with a professional-services offer because many enterprises and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) do not have all the skills to design, build, migrate, and operate their own cloud solutions.
Based on 15 market interviews in Europe and emerging markets, as well as deep-dive project engagements, Cisco IBSG has explored why professional services are needed, what they should look like, and how they can be implemented. This FastFacts focuses on the SP opportunity to target cloud professional services to SMBs.

Do you want to increase sales by providing shoppers with the information they need when and where they need it – in your store?
Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences solution can help you do just that. Connected Mobile Experiences is a new solution that helps enables retail organizations to use Wi-Fi location services to deliver engaging store experiences and generate valuable shopper insights.
Despite how thoroughly it has been embraced, though, it’s not without flaws. In my opinion, they mostly stem from the fact that PUE is more complicated than it looks. Although calculating the metric is a relatively straightforward exercise, the resulting score doesn’t tell you anything about the factors that influenced it. Hence why it’s a bad idea to compare PUE among Data Centers.
