Hi All! This is the second of what I’m hoping will be a weekly recap for Enterprise Networks.I say “hoping” because we’re just testing it out for now to see if people like it and if it adds value.
In this video I give a short summary of what happened this last week, then I have a fun interview with one of our premier ASIC designers here at Cisco, Guntram Wolski. When we were coming up with the concept for this weekly recap I wanted to find some of the smart, fun, technical people who have been involved with the creation of some of our coolest technologies. I really lucked out with Guntram -- as you’ll see, we had quite a fun* interview. Finally, we have an announcement on what we’ll be covering next week. After the jump, I’ve got all the links to things mentioned during the recap. Let me know what you think of this video and if there are other people you’d like me to interview.
If you have ever been to a large resort, you may find yourself amazed at the number of restaurants, clubs and shops that are on the property. On the other hand you may find yourself constantly wandering around the property to find a particular place you had in mind or having to stop at every directory kiosk on the way to make sure you weren’t lost. What if there was a better way?
With the Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture the control layer can abstract information from the network infrastructure. But what does this mean from the perspective of delivering a better end-user experience or even helping in driving business? Let’s look at an example of how the network infrastructure is helping drive change in the hospitality industry. Read More »
What if you could apply application based Quality of Service (QoS) with just a couple clicks? Seriously. If you’ve read this far, I’ll tell you: ActionPacked! Networks, a Cisco Developer Network (CDN) registered partner, recently hosted my colleague, Bob Nusbaum for an awesome webinar and demo.
LiveAction handles QoS, NBAR2, and other AVC features easily and comprehensively
Bob described Cisco’s perspective on the future of routing – it’s all about applications! -- and ActionPacked! gave a great demo of LiveAction software. Our attendees learned how to securely:
Discover and prioritize 1400+ applications in your network
Re-route groups of applications based on real-time network performance
Reduce bandwidth expansion costs
The webinar is a deep-dive on Cisco AVC and explains how to simplify and speed delivery of applications with Cisco ISR-AX Routers and ActionPacked! LiveAction software.
Block Bit Torrent with AVC & LiveAction
If you don’t have time for a 60-minute webinar, take a look at the great video combining Cisco AVC and LiveAction to detect and block Bit Torrent.
Hi All! This is the first of what I’m hoping will be a weekly recap for the new Enterprise Networks. In this video I give a very short summary of what happened this last week, then I get to do two quick interviews with our TechWiseTV heroes Jimmy Ray Purser and Robb Boyd! Finally, we have an announcement on what we’ll be covering next week. After the jump, I’ve got all the links to things mentioned during the recap. Let me know what you think of this first video!
A few weeks ago Cisco released the Global IT Impact Survey. For this survey we interviewed over 1300 IT professionals across 13 countries, at all ages of their careers -- those in their 20s all the way through those over 60. We had people from many different industries -- education, construction, government, transportation, consulting, utilities -- and more.
When we released the survey, the analysis we did was really just a small part of what could be looked at. There was a lot more data there to sift through and analyze than we explicitly discussed. For example, we found 48% of those surveyed saw business opportunity with the Internet of Things. However, I was curious how IT knowledge and perceptions of IoT correlated with some of the other data we gathered. And because I somehow thought it would be faster to put my analysis down in images (hint, it probably wasn’t) I made a data visualization. Read More »
