Cisco Unified Access Shines at Interop New York

Many of us in the IT world are at Interop New York this week and we’re very excited. Tablets and smartphones enable new and innovative ways to engage employees, guests and customers; the technology tantalizes with the promise of business transformation. More organizations are allowing mobile and personal devices for work use. But there are also many challenges for IT during these technology transitions.  IT is struggling to keep up with the latest mobility trends.

As you know, we first launched Cisco Unified Access about 3 months ago at Cisco Live in San Diego.  Now at Interop New York, we are announcing a number of significant enhancements to the Cisco Unified Access solutions. These enhancements enable IT to spend less time running the network and more time collaborating and innovating with the lines of business.  If IT organizations want to have a seat at the table and impact the business, a strong and agile IT platform is required. This platform can become a business differentiator and will enable business transformation.  This is what Cisco’s Unified Access is all about – One Policy, One Management, One Network, enabling the IT to discover what is possible with the business.

Today, I’m excited to share with you the latest Cisco Unified Access innovations that we are announcing at Interop New York.

Catalyst 6500 Speaks: I’m Alive and Well, Thank You!

 “Rumors of My Death…”

I’m always amazed by how the rumor mill continues to try to kill off people and products. The American author, Mark Twain, once felt compelled to write, “The report of my death was an exaggeration.” and I know how he feels!

It happened to Sir Paul McCartney, when the Beatles were still an active band. It happened to that iconic sports car, the Porsche 911, in the mid-70s. Quick… who remembers the Porsche 928? More importantly, who doubts that the 911 still delivers class-leading performance?

The Cloud and Your Network – Is There a Gap?

Cloud computing is coming, and we’re seeing businesses migrating to cloud services very quickly – Gartner expects 60% of enterprises will have migrated branch office services to the cloud or virtualized servers by 2015 (Gartner Analyst Review, February 2012). Yet, oddly enough, many businesses have done relatively little to prepare their existing network infrastructure for the inevitable transformation – despite the fact the network remains the critical path between their users and the cloud services they need to get their job done.
