How can you immediately deploy and manage Cisco devices from the day they arrive at your organization?
The answer is ….. Cisco day-one device support.
As part of my series on Cisco Prime for Enterprise, I asked Pramendra Bajpai, Manager of Software Engineering, Cisco Network Management, to provide an overview of Cisco day-one device support. This Cisco Prime attribute accelerates the discovery, configuration, and inventory of Cisco devices as soon as they are plugged into the network.

We’re all glad that the Hurricane Irene rampage and floods are all behind us. Even though the massive clean-up efforts will take many months, the process has begun. Much like the National Weather Service and FEMA trying to manage all of the variations of tracking the hurricane and the effects on people and property, our service providers are trying to manage the millions of mobile connections, cloud-based applications, and zetabytes of data on their networks.
At Cisco, our strategy has focused on empowering the network by adding intelligence and integrating together advanced solutions that address customer requirements in the fast-moving, constantly growing, competitive service provider market. Our internal R&D expenditures last year reached $5 billion, surpassing all of our networking industry peers combined. Across the board, Cisco is known for delivering industry-leading solutions directly, via partners, and through acquisitions.
Last week Cisco announced its intent to acquire the service fulfillment software assets and associated employees from the UK subsidiary (formerly Axiom Systems) of parent company Comptel Corporation. Let me tell you why I’m excited for our customers by this. Read More »

The transition to IPv6 presents a complex technical challenge, and the business risks for not doing it right are potentially significant, in terms of impact on customer retention and growth, new business models, and competitive edge.
In this third installation of the series, Kelly Ahuja of Cisco and Ray Mota of ACG focus on Service Provider strategies for the transition to IPv6. As Kelly mentions, the Cisco Carrier-Grade IPv6 Solution (CGv6) is designed to help address both technical and business challenges associated with the transition. The Cisco CGv6 portfolio of IPv6 solutions enables service providers to:
Preserve investments in IPv4 infrastructure, assets, and delivery models
Prepare for the smooth, incremental transition to IPv6 services that are interoperable with IPv4
Prosper through accelerated subscriber, device, and service growth that are enabled by the efficiencies that IPv6 can deliver
It’s important to emphasize the word solution. CGv6 solution is not just a line card, or a network appliance, or a software feature. Unlike other companies Cisco has the experience and expertise to help network operators realize the promise of IPv6 by offering full Life Cycle Services Support. This is especially important as not all operators have experience in IPv6 or access to this expertise. Cisco can provide the people, processes and tools to ensure a seamless transition. Some of the capabilities our advanced services team provides include:
