Cisco Live! San Francisco was the biggest Cisco Live! yet—25,000 attendees. Read Chris’s blog for more on the network at Cisco Live! You also heard about the Mobility Services APIs enabling location-based services and location-enabled application development in Neha’s blog yesterday. The event also marked a milestone for our CMX team: successful location tracking of all 30,000 devices in the conference center with a single pair of MSEs (Mobility Services Engine) running on 7.6MR2 code to generate analytics and reports based on device location!
Let’s take a closer look at location analytics generated at Cisco Live! If you haven’t seen CMX Analytics before, let me tell you: it’s powerful. There are three pieces of CMX Analytics: Dashboard, Analytics and Reports, all generated by the location data from the MSE. Here are a few key views from the show floor:
1. Dashboard: The CMX Dashboard features a number of customizable widgets that visualize location data such as dwell time and device count by zone or by time.

Tuesday marked a steady flow through the day with the World of Solutions and breakout sessions all day. You see that spike at 5pm? That’s when the beverages and refreshments came out—and then you see people tapering off round 7pm to head out for dinner.

Well, we did it. For four days, May 19-22, our live video coverage on our home page included:
- John Chambers keynote
- Rob Lloyd keynote
- Industry keynote — IoT
- Guest keynote — Sal Kahn from Kahn Academy
Here are a few snapshots of what it looked like:
Now that the event is over, what did we learn — and where do we go from here?
- Video is engaging. Over 7,000 people clicked on the spotlights to view the live streaming videos in just four days.
- Video and screen size matter. The larger the screen, the longer the attention span. We delivered a fully responsive experience across PCs, tablets, smart phones and connected TVs and were able to track the attention span accordingly. It was the greatest on PCs (29 minutes), followed by tablets (12 minutes) and phones (8 minutes). There was a single view on a gaming console that lasted 28 minutes.
- Video needs to be purpose-built. Personalization is key to increase engagement opportunities. Video is no different. It needs to create mutual value between the viewer and the business.
- Video needs to be a priority. Partnerships and prioritization across IT, user experience, digital strategy, analytics and video teams are crucial to the success of your overall video strategy. The whole is greater than the sum of all parts.
- Video requires innovation. We plan to explore new and exciting ways to leverage video on our Cisco.com homepage — and pull cross-functional teams together to help us test, experiment and innovate.
