Five Most Interesting Things for Borderless Networks at Cisco Live

I’ve had a few days back at home.  I’m fully recovered from the jet-lag and general lack of sleep.  The non-stop geek-fest that is Cisco Live is now over.  With some time to look back at everything that happened in San Diego, I’m blown away by how this might have been one of the best events I’ve been to in 16 years and how it’s too bad that it’s going to be a whole year before we get to do it again.  Here are some of the things that made a huge…

Virtual Symposium #2: Cisco ONE

What Comes Next with Cisco and the ONF?

So, goings on with OpenFlow and the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) are always lively topics for discussion.  Since our announcement of Cisco ONE at CiscoLive, a number of folks have asked me if the announcement of our strategy changes our view of the ONF or the role of OpenFlow—the short answer is, simply, no. We continue to strongly support ONF and its efforts related to SDN and our support has and will continue to been demonstrated in tangib…
