A group of Australian systems integrators did a great write-up on Aug 3:
Having been a former member of the executive team at RingCube prior to re-joining Cisco’s desktop virtualization group, I’m pleased to see Citrix get aggressive about tackling this problem. And the overarching problem has been that corporate PCs have evolved to become more cumbersome, less productive and less “personal” to work on in recent years.
Now you might ask – is it really important that “Personal Computers (PCs)” remain “Personal”? Well, actually it turns out even in a corporate setting, it makes a huge difference. IT departments can dictate to some degree what employees can and can not use for business but each day we see an explosion of more usage on more personalized devices. As knowledge professionals, these devices often operate as an extension of who we are, what we say, and what we do.
On Monday we showed you the preparation. On Tuesday we showed you the execution model. We thought things were under control, but when you have so much going on at a huge event, sometimes the pressure starts to take it’s toll. Luckily we have great teamwork within the Cisco Data Center team and we were able to spot the signs early.

The Cisco vision of the mobile network of the future is one that continuously adapts, enabling people to connect and communicate how, when, and where they need to, without relying on pre-defined fixed infrastructure. This is exemplified by the Cisco Mobile Ready Net solution architecture.
In a split-second world where the stakes can be extremely high, mobile users are working beyond the boundaries of traditional networks. People who perform vital functions like police officers, first responders and firefighters, defense and military personnel managing disaster recovery or running planes, trains or ships must be able to connect, collaborate and share information in any format, from anywhere at anytime with no stopping to set-up a network.
The 5900 Series Embedded Services Routers fit perfectly into this solution by providing highly secure data, voice, and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes across wired and wireless links. That is why it is a pleasure to announce updates to the 5940 Embedded Services Router and the launch of the 5915 Embedded Services Router today!
Watch below as Brad Boston, senior vice president, Cisco Global Government Solutions Group discusses the enhancements and launch and be sure to visit http://www.cisco.com/go/5900 for additional information!
