It’s early April, which means it’s time to trek back to Las Vegas for the annual National Association of Broadcasters show (Booth A113, North Hall.) It’s a busy NAB for us this year, for lots of reasons – starting with the (way cool!) proof of concept demonstration we’re doing with Fox, to run live, uncompressed video over Ethernet.
That’s right: Video over Ethernet. Read More »

If you’re wondering what’s been facing video content creators like Fox and TV Globo, and how they view their future in these madcap days of TV everywhere, you’ll want to find a seat at the Las Vegas Convention Center room S222 at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 9. That’s where a panel of experts on the matter is scheduled, featuring Fox and TV Globo, on the content creation side, and Verizon, for the distribution point of view.
It’s all part of an NAB Super Session that we’re glad to be sponsoring, titled “What Will the Content Network of the Future Look Like?” Read More »

On March 27 2013 I had the opportunity to participate at Cisco’s Women in Technology Forum with the theme, “Think Big, Play Big!”
The event was particularly poignant as it was held under the publicity from Sheryl Sandberg’s provocative book and movement “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead”
Our CEO John Chambers kicked the Forum off with a welcome video. There were 41 Cisco execs at this venue and what can I say, an excellent start! Moving forward, I am excited that Cisco will be active globally in the celebration of Girls in ICT Day on April 25 2013. Further, I will have an opportunity to represent Cisco at the afternoon session, European Parliamentary hearing on Women in ICT.
The topic that I will address is most relevant today , “Women in ICT Careers, How to Explore Female Talent?” Read More »

However, one of the headaches they’ve faced is that some applications which work fine over IPv4 don’t play nicely with IPv6. That’s a real challenge for service providers, impacting their ability to migrate completely away from IPv4 and complicating their network operations.

We’ve been actively promoting the adoption of IPv6 at various venues -- back in January at Cisco Live London, and a few weeks ago at the V6 World Congress, which focused on the adoption of IPv6 in mobile networks.
Our next big venue is Cisco Live in Orlando, Florida June 23-27, 2013 and I want to take the opportunity to reflect on how IPv6 is becoming an increasingly important component of the event agenda, infrastructure and look forward to some of our future ideas for Orlando.
I have personally participated in Cisco Live for over 15 years as a speaker but this was my first time as a member of the IPv6 Team. For those of you who do now know I am the Product Manager for IPv6 in Cisco’s Core Technology team that we call Network Operating Systems Technology Group.
My observations on what I saw and heard in London were as follows: Read More »
