In a Network State of Mind

Innovative managed ISR G2 marketing with crowdsourcing platform jovoto

The ISR G2 is one of Cisco’s most versatile products – it delivers next generation WAN and network services, enables the cost-effective delivery of high-definition video and collaboration, and provides the secure transition to the next generation of cloud and virtualized network services.  

Cisco has teamed with jovoto on an innovative marketing initiative to develop creative yet focused campaign concepts for managed ISR G2.  jovoto is an online collaboration platform that delivers creative collective intelligence and builds on the concept of co collaboration with its global community. It establishes a sustainable partnership between brands that seek ideas and creative idea-driven individuals and communities.

Launching on August 23, Cisco and jovoto will run a six week contest to challenge the jovoto community to create concepts that communicate a compelling value proposition for the ISR G2. Anyone can submit new ideas, review the submissions, and provide feedback and comments to make them even better. There are prizes for the top ideas and for the highest ‘karma’ points – the most active participants who comment and help shape these ideas.

We want YOU!  Are you a designer with amazing ideas for how to turn the ISR G2 value proposition into an great marketing campaign? Submit an idea (or five)! Are you an IT professional who we’d want to hook? Give your candid feedback and tell us if these ideas would get you to think about ISR G2.

See the “In a Network State of Mind” contest landing page to get started.

Today’s Solution for Continuous Mobility

The Cisco vision of the mobile network of the future is one that continuously adapts, enabling people to connect and communicate how, when, and where they need to, without relying on pre-defined fixed infrastructure. This is exemplified by the Cisco Mobile Ready Net solution architecture.

In a split-second world where the stakes can be extremely high, mobile users are working beyond the boundaries of traditional networks. People who perform vital functions like police officers, first responders and firefighters, defense and military personnel managing disaster recovery or running planes, trains or ships must be able to connect, collaborate and share information in any format, from anywhere at anytime with no stopping to set-up a network.

The 5900 Series Embedded Services Routers fit perfectly into this solution by providing highly secure data, voice, and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes across wired and wireless links. That is why it is a pleasure to announce updates to the 5940 Embedded Services Router and the launch of the 5915 Embedded Services Router today!

Watch below as Brad Boston, senior vice president, Cisco Global Government Solutions Group discusses the enhancements and launch and be sure to visit http://www.cisco.com/go/5900 for additional information!

Cisco Catalyst 6500 at your fingertips, anytime, anywhere!

Cisco Live: Catalyst 6500 and Sup2T: Engaging  attendees with Mobile Devices

With the launch of the Sup2T supervisor, and associated line cards (69xx), for the Catalyst 6500 Family Switches, Cisco embarked on an innovative strategy to help attendees learn about the features of the Catalyst 6500 family of switches, by providing a simple “Trivia Game” that attendees could play by downloading a Catalyst 6500 Mobile app, directly to their mobile devices. 

Over 780 attendees completed the trivia game on iPhones and iPads, and each day at Cisco Live, three “winners” were randomly picked from all the attendees who had answered the most trivia questions correctly.

The mobile app, available at the iTunes app store, was a huge success, especially with its contextual set of features and content, centered  around the Catalyst 6500 family of switches.

Medianet Service Discovery and Auto-Registration: Building the dynamic media system – Part 2

In the first part of this blog we discussed the transition from unified communications to pervasive video and the use of service discovery mechanisms and auto-registration.

Over time, the use of service discovery and registration protocols will become pervasive across rich media endpoints to simplify and automate deployment. It provides the foundation by which applications can then automate other aspects of configuration on the endpoints. One example would be to have a set top box not only automatically discover and register to its nearest content server but also to provide other information such as location to enable the automatic selection and streaming of the right content for that particular set top box. Network service discovery and registration provides the basic infrastructure to enable a fully automated application deployment; achieving true plug and play deployment.
