Wireless in the Great Outdoors

May 5, 2011 at 11:54 am PST

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.

May 2, 2011 at 5:42 am PST

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.

Data Center Domination

Chillin'

Chillin'

Strong title perhaps…but thats the kind of over the top messaging I have been practicing now that I am technically on a marketing team.  Today is the big day -- all the hard work of a great many people that spent the last several years dreaming, designing and then building what appears to me as the most advanced, eco-friendly data center as yet conceived…(there I go again).  Lots to promote here so bear with me -- first and foremost -- be sure and tune in today as they stream the grand opening event featuring our own Rebecca Jacoby and John Manville -- you can catch it live on the uStream channel: http://www.ustream.tv/ciscotv from 2:30 to 3:15 Central Time.

The last of our three TechWiseTV shows taped at CiscoLive in London is now out -- its a very Special Edition on the relationship of Learning at Cisco and CiscoLive. (Click here to register and watch the show right now).

These two items are really well matched.  CiscoLive has a rich history focused directly on knowledge sharing, learning and of course certifications. This is what I really love about these events -- tons of smart geeks looking to have fun and get smarter.

Our goal for this special edition of TechWiseTV is to dive into the motivation and the opportunity of using CiscoLive as a milestone in your career.  These events occur in key cities around the world featuring abundant benefits for those pursuing career advancement in the networking field.

Two big things on the agenda:

1. History of Learning at Cisco
