Cisco WAAS Wins Best of Interop: Performance Optimization
I’m thrilled to announce Cisco AppNav for Cisco WAAS won the Best of Interop: Performance Optimization award. Cisco AppNav is a virtualization technology that enables customers to deliver high performance applications at scale from the cloud or enterprise data center. IT can use AppNav to address performance challenges created by bring-your-own-device (BYOD), Cloud, and Virtual Desktops. In the next several weeks, we’ll be announcing more details of this and a host of other Cloud Connectors. you can register for the big reveal here

Protecting data, resources, and assets, including audio-video (A/V) content and communications no matter where it resides or travels on Cisco-powered networks can be a daunting undertaking to say the least. People ultimately are responsible for making this happen. With this thought in mind, here are a few questions that frequently challenge someone with this type of responsibility:
- How can one ensure that the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the core network keeps pace with the introduction of new technologies, while managing the continuous stream of disclosures on existing product vulnerabilities and emerging threats?
- What preemptive or corrective actions can one take to mitigate or remediate known or potential weaknesses in your network operations?
- What trusted informational resources are available that we can apply in the design, operation and optimization of a secure network, and where can this information be found?

Customers from around the world are gathered today at Cisco’s campus in Richardson, Texas to kick off the Spring 2012 Packet Optical Networking Conference (PONC). This brings together network operators, large enterprise customers, optical industry leaders, and Cisco solution teams at a three-day event to collaborate on best practices and future requirements in IP and optical solutions. Some of the key themes that will be featured at this year’s event include:
- 40G/100G Coherent DWDM transport over 10G infrastructure: Much of the infrastructure today was designed to support only 10G wavelengths. It is undesirable to cap and start over with new infrastructure that is purpose built for 40/100G. Cisco’s unique Coherent optical transport technology is a game Read More »
