Visit us at EDUCAUSE 2014. We’ll be in booth 1121 and ready to share the latest in Connected Learning for Higher Education.
Join us for demonstrations and presentations by education technology experts covering a range of topics, including:
New! Campus Media Experience Come see the Dorm Room of the Future! Whether in a dorm room or on the go via a mobile device, smart and connected systems use student preference location, presence, environmental, and personalized information to deliver a better experience and improved access to services and information. This makes easy for students to:
Access Services, entertainment, and academic content
Collaborate with Friends, Faculty and Family
Call / Video with Campus police and Emergency Notifications
New! CyberSecurity with SourceFire The 2014 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report indicated 88% of financially motivated incidents with Web App Attacks are not detected by organizations own internal processes and security measures. See how Cisco answers Security through the tight integration of SourceFire and Identity Services Engine (ISE) to be more effective, less cumbersome, and more tightly integrated across the infrastructure; while at the same time improving the end user experience. Other Things to Explore:
Collaboration, featuring the new MX Series, which turns any classroom or conference room into a video collaboration hub
Cisco will also have a private meeting room on the show floor where you can meet with subject matter experts for 1:1 briefings. Contact your Cisco account manager for more information, or email firstname.lastname@example.org

In 2009, the course of data center technology changed forever with the introduction of a groundbreaking architecture designed for IT innovation and business acceleration. With the Unified Computing System, Cisco answered the needs of customers embarking on the industry transition to data center virtualization and cloud. This innovation led Cisco to becoming #1 blade server in Americas in 5 short years.
On September 4th, Cisco will unveil the next wave of Unified Computing innovation to meet the needs of the applications powering The Internet of Everything. As more users seek information in new ways, and as organizations use deeper intelligence to make faster decisions, IT must think differently about data center infrastructure. To meet the needs of customers the power of the data center needs to be everywhere.
Please join us virtually to listen to an exciting group of technology leaders, including Padmasree Warrior, Cisco’s Chief Technology and Strategy Officer, as Cisco delivers a grand slam of innovation. See the unveiling of exciting new systems that are optimized to bring the power of unified computing to applications at every scale. It is the broadest, most powerful array of new computing solutions since Cisco Unified Computing System (#CiscoUCS) first shattered industry convention in 2009.
Learn how Cisco has the right technology and partnerships to help you power data-intensive analytics, applications at the edge, and the next generation of scale-out workloads.

This is Engineers Unplugged, where technologists talk to each other the way they know best, with a whiteboard. The rules are simple:
Episodes will publish weekly (or as close to it as we can manage)
The growing amount of solid waste being added to landfills from product packaging is an environmental concern to Cisco. To address this, we strive to design packages that protect against shipping damage while minimizing material usage.
Our employee-led “Pack It Green” Initiative, which promotes optimized packaging and order fulfillment, is a big part of this commitment.
In fiscal year 2014* we eliminated 1.9 million pounds of material and the equivalent of 3.1 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions through 30 Pack It Green projects. These included bulk-packed products, integrated product shipments, the reuse of packaging materials, and expanding opportunities for customers to “opt out” of physically delivered products.
These efforts also saved Cisco US$6.1 million – proving that what’s good for the environment is also good for our business.

In his Wi-Fi Achieving New Heights blog after Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year, Doug Webster was excited to talk about the record-breaking carrier Wi-Fi network results we achieved with the Fira de Barcelona during the four-day conference. It was one of the world’s largest single Wi-Fi deployments ever staged in a venue. Just to give you an idea, there were 80,880 Internet enabled devices connected during MWC, twice the amount from the year before. We summarized all the results visually in this Infographic.
Since MWC, we’ve received a lot of questions about the details behind the network deployment. We decided to go behind the scenes to give you an inside look with a couple of informative Read More »
