It’s been a great week at Cisco Marketing Velocity in Cannes, and we hope you’ve been following all the action on the @partnervelocity and @cisco_channels Twitter handles, as well as here.
During the event, we celebrated Cisco’s Best Integrated Marketing Campaign awards, recognizing some of the most successful marketing campaigns delivered by Cisco partners all over the world. Each winner was judged by region and evaluated based on utilization of Cisco resources, creativity and innovation, business impact, and overall alignment to Cisco, including technology and architecture messaging.
Please join me in congratulating the 19 winners, pictured below with Cisco’s top channel executives.

We’ve been really busy but also very thrilled about the work we’re doing to future-proofing the network, and it seems we’re not alone. One of our latest innovations, adaptive radio modules for the AP3600, has been selected by UBM as a Best of Interop finalist for the Wireless award category!
It’s an honor to be recognized for our innovation and technological advancements in wireless, and we wanted to share a bit more about our submission with you.
What are the Adaptive Radio Modules?
The Adaptive Radio Modules a family of solutions in a modular form factor that allows customers to adapt their wireless network to their current and future needs. The Adaptive Radio Modules provide a dedicated third radio that can be field upgraded on the 3600 Access Point.
Cisco offers three adaptive radio modules for the 3600 Access Point:

This year we’re moving our Packet Optical Conference 2013 to San Jose and it promises to be an exciting three days (May 14-16) full of demonstrations and sneak peeks at new platforms and technology. We’ve also got a number of industry speakers including Krish Prabhu, CEO of AT&T Labs and Bikash Koley, Principal Architect at Google, in addition to key Cisco leaders and technology visionaries. The event will also feature two customer panels featuring representatives from Comcast, Microsoft, Verizon, FTP Vietnam, and others.
The agenda includes such topics as:

OK, so the title of this article isn’t totally accurate. Cisco’s 100G DWDM solution won’t work over barbed wire, or Cat-5 cable, or cotton string, but it will work on over 95% of the existing fiber in the ground, including systems that were designed to operate at 10 Gbps. Why is this important? Because 100G services aren’t just for large cities and international carriers. Even rural locations are starting to see Internet growth rates fast enough to justify the leap to 100G.
For example, to prepare for anticipated growth of IP network traffic, two independent communications providers in Wyoming recently completed a successful trial of a 100 Gbps optical connection. Silver Star Communications, based in Thayne WY, and Advanced Communications Technology (ACT), from Sheridan WY, completed this trial across 420 miles of existing fiber, over multiple networks in conjunction with Cisco in early April 2013.

We first talked about the Mapping of Address and Port (MAP) method to handle IPv4 exhaust and the transition to IPv6 last week. MAP is based on two IETF drafts currently in the process of standardization in draft-ietf-softwire-map (MAP-E) and draft-ietf-softwire-map-t (MAP-T). The real advantage with MAP is that it’s stateless and doesn’t require additional hardware as traffic grows. Read More »
