There has been a lot of recent online discussion about automation of the datacenter network, how we all may (or may not) need to learn programming, the value of a CCIE, and similar topics. This blog tries to look beyond all that. Assume network configuration has been automated. How does that affect network design?

Can you believe it has been almost a year since we all gathered together in Orlando at Cisco Live? Well, it has and you know what that means -- it is just about time for Cisco Live San Francisco!
One of the great things about Cisco Live is the educational experience afforded to everyone who is in attendance on-site and who joins via the Internet at Cisco Live Online (https://www.ciscolive.com/online/connect/publicDashboard.ww). There are hundreds of sessions where you can learn about networking technologies -- from Mastering Subnetting (BRKCRT-9346), to Nexus 7000 Virtual Device Context Design (BRKDCT-2121), and even the latest information on the Architecture of the Nexus 9000 (BRKDCT-3640). There are sessions encompassing Data Center, Security, Service Provider, Certifications, Wireless, Voice, etc. They have sessions for everyone and every skill level – it is a great chance to gain exposure to technologies that you have only heard of!

Here at Cisco, we take customer listening seriously. From the Global Annual Customer Satisfaction Survey to customer advisory boards to social media monitoring – and other avenues – we are constantly listening to what our customers and partners tell us they need from Cisco to enable their business success. One trend we hear in every feedback source is mobility: you want more options for managing your network from your mobile devices.

- Ask and answer questions in discussion forums
- Research Cisco products and services.

I’ve asked Jim Fuller, Senior Director of Services Entitlement, to share details on these new capabilities so that you can do more with Cisco while on the go. Read More »
