ACE Network: Bringing the Power of Video Meetings to Mobile BYOD Users

I spend a big part of my workday in virtual meetings, as an organizer, participant, or both. When I’m in my office, I can join those meetings from my desktop video endpoint, a Cisco TelePresence EX90, and enjoy the benefits of video communications.

But work isn’t necessarily a place that you go to anymore. I often work outside of my office, so the ability to easily join a video meeting from one of my mobile devices is critical for productive collaboration with colleagues. Read More »

Click to see the second step in action

This is the second post in our “Six Essential Steps for Unleashing the Power of Enterprise Mobility” blog series featuring Vine-format videos. To read the first blog and watch the video describing how enterprises can build a mobile structure, click here.

I’m excited to discuss the second step enterprises can take to enable more efficient ways of working in today’s mobile world. It may seem basic, but with more mobile workers than ever before and more mobile devices per user, enterprises can enable greater mobility by revolutionizing the workspace. This revolution isn’t about new cubicles and chairs – it’s about going virtual.

Virtual workspaces are not only efficient, but this next-generation workspace has the potential to build a complex, talent-based competitive advantage. Here are some key steps to consider when going virtual:  Read More »

Failure is not an Option! Real Madrid & Cisco Continue to Innovate and Partner for a Winning Formula

“We (Real Madrid), with our experience & ideas on how to grow in the sports and entertainment world, and you (Cisco) with your technology, innovation and revenue models… our collaboration, has always resulted in a win- win relationship…and, a proven reference in the world” – Enrique Uriel, CIO, Real Madrid

Eight years ago we embarked on a relationship with Real Madrid to collaborate in transforming the Santiago Bernabeu stadium into the “Ultimate Bernabeu,” which would deliver a fan experience unlike any other. Our first goal was to build a network that would make the stadium the safest, and most secure in the world.

That goal was closely followed by the next phase, which was to support the need for more “things” being connected to the network in the stadium – broadcasting companies, sponsors,  ticketing, hundreds of partners and VIP’s such as the Royal family!  The most recent goal, embarked upon three years ago, was to address the continually evolving need for fans and members to connect with the Club through technology.  Together we innovated, designed, and transformed the fan experience through key Cisco solutions – StadiumVision, Connected Stadium Wi-Fi , and StadiumVision Mobile – to enable the most interactive “live” experience in the world.

Join us August 8th for Next-Generation Knowledge Workers TweetChat — #CiscoYourWay

When? Thursday, August 8, 2013 @ 1:00 -- 2:00 p.m. (EDT)

Where? Twitter Chat

The explosive growth in mobility is transforming the ways in which we live, learn, play and, in particular, work. Every dimension of our business lives stands to change: whom we work with and when, where, how, and why we work — all will be impacted.

The ultimate goal of business mobility is to drive increased productivity, heightened customer experience, and harmonious work-life balance. Business mobility offers freedom for knowledge workers beleaguered by accelerating demands on their time and talents; with it, they can take control of their success at work while protecting their personal lives. And, increasingly, it is the knowledge workers themselves who are driving these sweeping changes in the workplace.

But how can service providers and enterprises embrace the disruption?

Join us this Thursday, August 8th at 10am PST/1pm EST for a TweetChat on how next-generation knowledge workers are accelerating the disruption in business mobility. Follow #CiscoYourWay to join in on the discussion. I’ll be tweeting from my own handle @Spain_Chris. Read More »
