At Cisco, we’ve been working with service providers around the world to help craft their new”offer” -no longer will they be offering just voice, or video, or data, or mobility, but rather integrated experiences that blend all of these throughout their subscribers’ daily lives, whether they be at home, at work, or on the move. We call this the”Connected Life” and are actively working to enable it for providers to deliver. But we recognize that while we have had many ideas on this and are actively innovating on many of them, we certainly don’t have a monopoly on them. So many of the participants on the Human Network have some great ideas as well. We wanted to add their voices into the process as well, and one of the ways we are doing is to invite consumers to participate through a contest called”Help Design the Connected Life.” We’ve received ideas from all over the world -in fact, many more than we anticipated, and the ideas have covered the gamut in terms of creativity, enthusiasm, and vision. We’ll be higlighting some of their ideas on this blog in the weeks to come, but if you’re interested in participating, there is no time like the present, as the contest ends on September 14th. (click here to submit your idea).But even if the timing doesn’t work for the contest, please know we’re always interested in getting your thoughts and opinions, whether in this new SP360 blog and the many other interactive forums we host. Thanks for visiting with us today and for your collaboration to help design the Connected Life.Doug WebsterDirector, MarketingCisco Systems, Inc.
