More details continue to flow from our recent Interop Road Trip to Vegas -- our latest episode (TWTV91) for those keeping track is ready to go and there is a lot to cover. The biggest thing to follow here is Cisco Prime. ‘Prime’ is the name to look for on what is becoming a growing groundswell of numerous Cisco
management products that are getting overhauled with a consistent UI and functionality. Much is happening here already -- its not a ‘wait and see what we are going to do,’ there is very solid progress…more than a shows worth actually, but the real benefit is what this continues to bring to us.
So what all can you expect out of this one?
Interop and all the Borderless Launch stuff of course, Cisco PRIME -- Policy and Management comes alive, hands on details with NCS -- Network Control Engine, ISE -- Identity Services Engine, SecureX -- Cloud Based Security and Cisco Insight Reporter. YES! All in one show…how did we do it? (secret presentation ninja skills my friend…and a great team…go to the end for a special ‘Behind the Scenes’ we did just for this series..)
Follow the jump to see the show AND the rest of the shownotes…
Popular portions of our ‘Intelligent Switches come out of the Closet” show continue to leak out on our podcast channel. In this segment we cover innovation here around TrustSec, MacSec, EnergyWise and so much more with the 3560-C and 2960-C series switches. These things pack a lot of punch into a small, very purpose built package.
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.
