Almost anywhere you go nowadays, you have internet access at your fingertips. With the trend of smart phones, tablets, and other personal devices taking flight, we’re just a touch away from being connected – and with that comes high expectations.
Not only are we experiencing an influx of mobile users, but these devices are being incorporated into the workspace. In order to support this influx, we need a simple, unified network that ensures the greatest experiences for employees as well as consumers.
Cisco® has a brand new resource suited specifically to help you understand and meet these expectations. It is called Cisco Mobilize, and features best practices, expert advice, and customer stories regarding the latest in creating a unified mobile workspace. Read More »

2012 was an exciting year for Cisco’s Connected Energy business.
Cisco entered the Smart Grid space 3 years ago and we have seen significant customer momentum. We now have more than 250 customers worldwide. These include advanced metering infrastructure, substation and utility data center deployments in North America and wide area, substation, and distribution networks in Europe and Asia. In 2012, we had over 175 production deployments and picked up the UTC Best Smart Grid Products/Solutions for FAN and Substation as well as the Frost & Sullivan innovations awards. Our Connected Grid Cisco Developer Network of partners continues to grow as well and we will be announcing more members in the coming months.
Last Wednesday we announced an expansion of the Connected Grid Portfolio. The new offerings include the Cisco® Utility Operational Network solution, Cisco Connected Grid Design Suite, and Cisco Incident Response and Workforce Enablement solution. These three new solutions will help utilities modernize, manage, and improve everyday grid operations. Read More »

If you’re attending CiscoLive London, we’ve got some great talks, challenges (competition where you can win a variety of prizes), and new solutions being launched. In this blog I’m going to highlight a few of the activities and events we have planned that I think will be the most fun/cool/educational/tasty.

You’ll also want to start hanging out at the Cisco Borderless Networks community where we’ll have a Q&A and we have a bunch of upcoming events and fun. </SIDENOTE> Read More »

I spend a lot of time behind curtains. That’s not really out of choice as it’s the nature of where they stick you when you’re running the network at a large tradeshow. We call it the Network Operations Center – NOC if you want to sound cool – but most people just know it as the guys to complain to when your computer doesn’t work at a show. It’s often a thankless gig and it can be extremely stressful at times, but setting up a temporary network that might live for less than a week to deliver fast wired and wireless access to thousands of people in a completely foreign environment is an exciting challenge. Here’s how it happens. Read More »
