Control Freaks Unite! Sorry…been waiting to use that for awhile…but from a wireless perspective, things continue to get better. Our latest wireless episode (TWTV90 for those in the know) is now available. You can watch it in all its glory by clicking here. If you are not just taking my word alone…(its a great show) watch the darn promo embedded here…and then click.
In a nutshell, this show is a detailed romp through the protocols shaping our wireless experience as we set up, and dig into, the controllers (an increasingly relevant term that did not exist in the past where ‘fat’ AP’s ruled…) and their form factors you could be using to make your life easier.
I don’t believe we have talked enough about the changes to our collaboration series. We welcomed a new host, well hostess(?) if you will…in the little powerful packaged dynamo known as Laura Powers. Fitting name me thinks. My overly delayed shownotes for Laura’s inaugural debut with us now follow. This episode, shot 80 plus percent at the Enterprise Connect Show, Formerly Known As, and Difficult to Get Used To, VoiceCon…had an incredible wealth of topics, tweaks and update worth sharing. You can watch the whole show right now by registering (if you are not already a registered fan) and streaming to your hearts content.
We continued to build on our relationship with Laura Douglas at this show as well. Laura is the ‘wizard behind the scenes’ making sure content from these shows are getting edited and posted to the collaboration community just as soon as possible. We managed to get Laura DOUGLAS on camera as well and quite frankly, I look forward to more partnership opportunities.
Our brand new Outdoor Wireless show just launched today -- you can register and watch it here.. but these are the shownotes for your reference..and they make more sense if you watch the show!
Seamless, Scalable, Capable, Unique applications
Mobility is about more than just wireless of course…but even among our wireless coverage, we need to get outside. Outdoor wireless comes with its own unique set of challenges…they fall into a lot of the same categories of course: Interference, Propagation, Noise, to name a few but in general:
Everything becomes magnified outdoors.
Each category can be sliced up in a few areas -- rugged design, unique combinations of physical and network security.
So, a focus on education is in order as are some new toys to play with -- most notably the Aironet 1550 Series OUTDOOR Access Point.
The Cisco Identity Services Engine continues the relentless march on both policy definition and the all-important, yet difficult to deliver -- policy enforcement. This is a first generation product with a multi-generational pedigree granting it a maturity worth considering for many networks. We created another one of our fundamental’s explanations for this one humbly think it does a good job of explaining both what the ISE is for and what you should be able to get out of it.
Couple of great places for more information of course.
Cisco recently shipped its one millionth Nexus 10Gb Ethernet port, bringing the total number of Nexus ports in customer production environments to more than 7,000,000. We have also surpassed 10,000 NX-OS customers and neared 4,000 Unified Computing Systems. Wow. Good times.
The linkage and capabilities continue to build and this show covers the next step on our very mature convergence storyline adding scale and intelligence to the mix.
