Did You Know? Cisco’s FCoE Transformational Service

Over the past couple of years the conversation about Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and converged networks (e.g., Unified Fabric) has become more and more sophisticated. While I still get the occasional “what is FCoE?” question, and still have to correct the occasional journalist who insists FCoE runs over TCP/IP (it doesn’t!), those conversations are becoming more rare. Instead, the conversation has shifted from the “…

IPv6 at CiscoLive! San Diego

…action that comes from participating in the design and operations of internal networks for the (US and European) CiscoLive – networks these events depend upon.

Virtual Symposium #2: Cisco ONE

We decided to take advantage of the fine collection of smart people running around at CiscoLive in San Diego, and tape another in our Virtual Symposia series.  This one was a bit different than in that we started with a Cisco-specific seed topic and we did not take live Q&A due to the logistics of being live and onsite at CiscoLive. I think the show turned out well–we have a wide ranging discussion on not just the Cisco ONE announcement but…
