A Cisco IT View of Borderless Networks
In an increasingly connected world, most of us now expect to be able to access our workspaces at any time, regardless of our geographic locations or user devices. At any given day, I could be working from my house, in the office, at the Starbucks down the street, or even in another city. Now, once I’m at these locations, what kind of devices can I use to work? Cisco understands that the way people work in the enterprise is changing because so many employees want to use their personal tools at work but how do we enable them to connect from anywhere with any device? That’s where Borderless Networks comes in.

Check out this interview with Jawahar Sivasankaran, a senior IT manager at Cisco, who talks about the Borderless Network architectural play from Cisco IT’s perspective.
