The Intangibles of Telepresence

July 30, 2009 at 12:00 pm PST

I usually emit a little chuckle when I see any of the 100′s of articles written about “HD Video Conferencing”…a category that Telepresence will often get mistakenly mislabeled into. I sold traditional video conferencing into large accounts for MCI for many years and one large customer in Cincinnati highlighted for me what was so often the problem. Primarily, it was just not easy enough. Any time the technology has the ability to get in the way of the meeting, then you lost. Its all about the meeting. I had seen this one large customer watch as HUGE PictureTel rooms with incredible technology and dedicated teams remained largely vacant. The hassle factor was too much. Read More »

Defending Your Network in 256 Bytes or Less

Jimmy Ray Purser is hosting another one of his interactive webex based workshops that you really don’t want to miss. If are you are already familiar with your show than you probably know that security and networking probably rank highest on JR’s passion list (from a work perspective…). This topic, which he dives into on August 13 is a really nice cross-section of stuff that he is SO deeply knowledgable on that I guarantee that no matter how much you think you already know about the topic…he will hit it from an angle you either had not considered or never knew to think about. This is one of the reasons I love this hillbilly friend of mine…he has a depth of knowledge that he loves to share and way of sharing it that never gets boring…he hates doing the same thing twice. The ‘copy’ that has gone out describing the workshop sounds intriguing: Read More »

TechWiseTV Episode 47 “Routing Revolution on the Network Edge” Show Notes The ASR 1000 series of routers is very simply answering the challenge of ever escalating demand. Demand for more speed, smaller form factors, less energy, on and on and on. It sets new bars for performance, David Newman said it well in his Network World Article: “With enterprises looking to consolidate data centers and devices, Cisco’s new ASR 1000 series router offers a compelling message: Do more with less.In an exclusive Clear Choice test, the ASR not only moved traffic at 20Gbps but also did so while running QoS, security and monitoring functions on 120 million flows from hundreds of concurrent routing sessions.” This is the kind of performance and innovation we need moving forward. This show was a lot of fun to make. Great people, great technology. Here are the notes and details for further info you may find helpful. Read More »
