Supercomm 2009: Impressions and Activity from Day 1
Hello from Chicago! I wanted to take a moment to share some highlights from our first day at SUPERCOMM 2009. We’re seeing the continued momentum of the Cisco IP Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) architecture and its technology innovation which help enable service providers to deliver an increasing array of innovative “Connected Life” experiences to their customers.
We also announced new findings from the Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) Usage research effort that confirms service provider networks are carrying a significant amount of visual networking traffic, with more than one-third of the average global broadband connection supporting video, social networking and collaboration applications each month.
On the lighter side, we unveilled Prep the Net, a fun, interactive experience designed to encourage everyone to interact with the Cisco ASR 9000, the industry’s most powerful edge router. Participants can create, fold, customize and share their own personalized Cisco ASR 9000 interactions.
