Cisco Brings Secure BYOD Solutions to a City Near You; Celebrates Cisco BYOD Thursdays

Can you imagine life without your iPhone? Your Android?  Your tablet?  I get uncomfortable just thinking about having to use a phonebook to look up a number, or a map to get somewhere, or a desktop machine to read email.   Luckily, our employers are beginning to understand our dependence on personal devices.  As our dependence increases, the challenge for our employers is also increasing to implement simple, secure, effective BYOD solutions so we can productively use these devices in the work environment.   We have seen an uptake of organizations announcing their plans for a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy. To keep moving the dialogue forward on how to make sure organizations are prepared for BYOD,   Cisco will be launching a “BYOD Thursday’s” blog series and BYOD roadshows.

For the BYOD Solution Days Roadshow,  Cisco switching, wireless, security, desktop virtualization and collaboration subject matter experts will travel across the country to demonstrate, using real-life scenarios, how organizations can successfully address the BYOD challenge.  The link below provides complete information on dates, locations and registration.

BYOD Solution Days:  September 12 – November 14

Attendees will learn:

  • How to effectively use the Cisco BYOD Smart Solution for mobile device freedom without compromising your network.
  • Technical design considerations for successful implementation of secure mobility initiatives.

Spaces are filling up fast so be sure to click the links above to see when we’ll be in your city and register today. We hope to see you there!  And keep on the lookout for our “BYOD Thursday’s” posts moving forward.

How to Win A Gold Medal with Cisco Unified Access

The 2012 London summer Olympic games are now in the books. I’m sure that a lot of you watched as many events as you could.  As thousands of world-class Olympians met and competed, they left us with not only their brilliant performances but also many inspirational stories.

Almost everyone is familiar with South Africa’s double amputee “Blade Runner” Oscar Pistorius. There’s also Bryshon Nellum, the American track and field athlete, who brought us another amazing story.  In 2008, he was shot three times with major damage to his legs and hamstrings. Against all odds, he trained through the pain and recovered his speed. In London, he ran the first leg of the US men’s 4×400 relay team and they won the silver medal.
