Wired or Wireless: Connect with Aironet 700W Series Access Points

Quality wireless is already considered a base expectation by consumers across industries. At Cisco we aim to provide our spectrum of customers with a whole range of high performing products, so they can select the product best suited for their organization. If you were to stop by the Enterprise Networking booth at Cisco Live Milan, you’d be able to examine our full portfolio of access points and notice that there are two that stand out from the others: the newly designed, 802.11ac integrated 3700 AP we introduced at Interop New York and one more, except this one can fit in your hand.


We are pleased to announce Cisco Aironet 700W Series Access Point, a wall mounted wireless and wired integrated platform. 700W Series is the industry’s FIRST and ONLY dual radio, dual band 2.4/5 GHz Access Point with 4 GigE Ethernet ports for wired connectivity, like IP Phones, game consoles, entertainment devices or other connected devices. 700W Series can be powered either by Power over Ethernet (PoE) or by a local power adapter, while it also provides PoE out on one local port to power an additional connected device.

Cisco Live Milan 2014 & CMX


Cisco Live Milan 2014 kicked off this morning with an opening keynote by Rob Lloyd. During the session Rob shared Cisco’s  vision of the Internet of Everything, and explored the industry trends and technologies that are making that vision a reality. One of these areas is enabled by Cisco’s CMX solutions and our growing ecosystem of partners.

To illustrate how this vision is becoming a reality, a CMX demo was shown on stage. The demo related to a wine producer ( we are in Italy by the way..) who was able to engage with their customers via their mobile app. Enabling the customer find the particular wines they are interested in, interact with the wine maker, get location specific promotions and really deliver a highly personalized and location specific service.

Meet the World’s Most Virtual Manager

Three lessons from the next frontier of managing

Thomas Winter works from a village of 3,000 people outside Zurich, Switzerland.  Not a single member of his 100-person team works in the country.  He conducts weekly meetings and delivers performance reviews virtually using video conferencing.  He’s accountable to business leaders in Cisco’s San Jose, Calif., headquarters and others in cities across the globe.  Oh, did I mention his team is responsible for driving adoption of a new commerce platform for $40 billion in Cisco product revenue through 1,000 partner organizations and 20,000 Cisco sellers?

What’s interesting talking to him is how normal all this seems to him.  Jack Welch recently said, “The Jack Welch of the future cannot be like me.”  Talking to Thomas, I’m pretty sure I’m getting a glimpse of one of those “jobs of the future.”  A new frontier of managing from anywhere using virtual technologies is emerging.  So what does it take?   If new opportunities present themselves but require – or allow – us to lead virtually, how ready are you?

Here are three take-aways from my conversation with the person I’m dubbing, the “world’s most virtual manager”: Read More »
