A post in ZDNet declared that Cisco has its “top honors” at CES, stating that “Cisco’s vision for Connected TV represents what CES is all about – a revolutionary idea that gets both consumers and the industry excited.” The team both on and off-site at CES is understandably honored by the distinction but it’s important to note that our service provider partners are just as deserving of the award as they have played an active role help us shape the vision and create what is known today as “Videoscape,.”
While I’ve been dealing mostly with press and analysts, Pankaj Patel, the senior vice president and general manager of the service provider group here at Cisco, has been spending the vast majority of his time with customers, so we tracked him down to get a summary of their reactions. And, what you’ll find in this brief video is a real sense that Cisco Videoscape brings together for them the ability to deliver rich video experiences, to have expanded opportunities to create new revenue streams and to do it over an architecture that will bring it “all together.”
More to come as we get to the final surge of Cisco at CES…. Stay tuned!
