Mark Your Calendars and Meet Us in Milan to Network and Grow Your Business

We value our Partners and we’re always looking for ways to increase our collaboration and interaction with all of you. For our Solution Partners, we do this at Cisco Solution Partner Forum events, typically held the day before Cisco Live!™ begins.

This year, our event takes place on Monday, January 26, 2015, at Cisco Live Milan.  The Solution Partner Forum provides program members with networking opportunities, new program updates and useful resources. All of this is designed to help you accelerate your business growth and advance your partnership with Cisco.

Our one day agenda includes business sessions where we’ll start with a keynote presentation and then cover all the enhancements we’re making to the Solution Partner Program.  You’ll get a sneak peak at a new Solution Partner Program membership option designed to appeal to a broad set of potential program members. It offers easy requirements for entry, making the benefits of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem available to more businesses.

We’ll tell you ways you can take advantage of the Internet of Everything Innovation Centers.  Plus, our “Innovation Contest” will be revealed at the event. Read More »

Converged Access Drives Cisco Live Cancun

Cisco Live Cancun took place in the beautiful Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort from November 3rd – 6th 2014.   The event provided a great opportunity for customers and partners to discuss Cisco’s Products and Solution’s vision.   And what better way to showcase these latest innovative solutions than with running the event itself with its very own innovation.  That is exactly what had been done, as Converged Access supported Cisco Live from beginning to end.

Converged Access enables one common set of network capabilities and context-aware intelligence as it brings IOS excellence to wireless by extending wired infrastructure features like, resiliency, granular QoS and scalability to wireless clients.  Converged Access was deployed at Cisco Live Cancun with 5 Catalyst 3850 Switches and 34 APs to support a peak of 450 concurrent users and a total of over 2,000 unique wired-wireless users.  Read More »

The Rise of the “Supertasker”: Our Next-Generation Workforce

We are living in the age of the “supertasker.” At Cisco Live Cancun last week, I polled our audience and asked, “How many devices are you connected to at this moment?” The majority of the audience held three or four. However, some still had their hands up at five and six devices. Supertaskers are emerging as the next-generation workforce, integrating several new devices to increase their productivity—and they will not be the minority for long.

As the Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to evolve, we see increased momentum towards connecting the unconnected. The Fitbit, for example, reminds us that we need to achieve our daily step goal while maintaining our work-life balance. As more organizations digitize their business, we expect 50 billion objects to be connected to the Internet by 2020—and more and more of these devices will integrate into our ever-changing work lives.
