Cisco Live Milan 2015 has just concluded and concluded with a bang of record-breaking attendance and increased customers’ understanding of the IoE and service provider Technologies. In my first post-show blog, I focused on the overall booth offerings and discussed relevance of Evolved Services Platform (ESP) and Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) to service providers’ success and the importance of properly addressing their requirements. I decided that it is important enough to provide additional highlights on the Cisco Live event. Before I share with you the remaining demo information, I wanted to recap the technologies that I described in the first post-show blog:
- nV Technology to simplify operations in the Network edge
- Segment Routing to enabled SDN-based routing and simplifying network operations
- Operational Simplicity enabled by Autonomic Networking in the Access
- Network Service Orchestration using Tail-f
- Virtualized Managed Business Services: delivering Cloud VPN
The above mentioned technologies are key innovations and bring a wealth of choices to the service provider when they create and deliver services to their business and residential users.
We attempted to bring a comprehensive collection of demos to help service providers Read More »

As service providers strive to provide choices to their customers, we have made great progress in providing them with new ways to deliver cloud services. We’re helping them intelligently address all cloud opportunities with a portfolio of cloud solutions that meet customer requirements – for all types of cloud delivery models. That is why we are bringing the next level of simplicity, choice and value to our service provider cloud partners by partnering with Microsoft to deliver a next generation cloud architecture – the Cisco Cloud Architecture for the Microsoft Cloud Platform.
This new cloud architecture for scale-up enterprise workloads and applications is designed to enable service providers to easily offer IaaS/PaaS and SaaS in a single platform with a life-cycle approach to service delivery and policy management. Most importantly, it allows service providers to lower Read More »

It’s amazing that March 8 2015 International Women’s Day is already upon us: It is not only the time to celebrate women globally, but to urge everyone to action in support of women, especially women in technology.
I recently presented at the Womensphere Summit on STEM on February 25 2015 to share my own journey and vision of what can be:
For me, success, is when we, collectively celebrate our women technologists daily because it is so engrained in our DNA to do so.
