I hope everyone is getting excited to take the Journey to the Sunshine State and have packed a few sets of mouse ears. A quick blog post this week as I have already run out of puns. I’d like to encourage you all to check out our Application Visibility and Control (AVC) partners at Cisco Live Orlando! There are three that I’d love to highlight.
InfoVista will be showing off their Application Visibility Solution in the Cisco Partner Pavilion and theater, ActionPacked! Networks has a very special announcement about LiveAction and can be found in booth 201, and Plixer’s Netflow Knights will highlight their full range of netflow support in booth 747 and our Partner Pavilion -- and even has a rap video, or so I’ve been told. I can’t wait to see in person what our customers think about our partners’ technologies. Also, come take a look at what Cisco has hidden beneath our huge plastic ears Read More »
This week, I invited Mike Patterson, co-founder of Plixer to share a real-life cyber threat example that one of his customers faced. Mike and his customer were able to use Plixer Scrutinzer, Cisco AVC, and IPFIX to detect a Known Infected Bot. Read More »
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.
