We’re Ready for Orlando (And I Don’t Mean Disney)!

Did you know…

  • There are so many attractions in Orlando that it would take the average traveler 67 full days to experience every one of them?
  • If you ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner at a different Orlando restaurant every meal, it would take you five years to eat at all 5,300+ of them?

We’ve packed our bags and we’re heading to Orlando next week. It’s not for the attractions or lunch buffets. It is for another exciting year at InfoComm. This year promises to be our best showcase yet and we hope you’ll stop by and visit us.

Experience delightful, user-first collaboration with Cisco Collaboration technology from Red Dot-awarded video systems to powerful integrator video components and flexible infrastructure models that make deployment easier, faster, and more affordable. We’ll showcase a full complement of video and unified communications solutions to show you how collaboration can be nearly effortless for companies of all sizes.

This year’s highlights include: Read More »

Cisco Partner Ecosystem Supports Cisco Live US

As we close another fantastic Cisco Live week in San Diego, showcasing the latest solution developments from Cisco and our Partners, I can’t help thinking about the amazing journey we’ve experienced with our partners during Cisco’s 30 years.  Today, more than ever before, our ability to collaborate effectively with all partner types to deliver business outcomes to our customers is simply mission critical.

Cisco Live really brought all of this to life for me – the journey and our collective readiness.  Read More »

Enterprises have long recognised the benefits of wireless – to enable faster, more productive working processes and a more empowered, more flexible workforce. After all, it is the enterprise sector that pioneered Wi-Fi deployments, often working with service providers, and it represents a significant business for Cisco worldwide. But the feedback from our enterprise partners is that businesses are hungry to build on this wireless foundation. Specifically, they want to extend the reach and power of their applications by combining the power of their Wi-Fi networks with the universal service of cellular networks.

Business BenefitsBusinesses want a simpler approach to mobile and they want it everywhere. For example, many workforce and process automation systems are isolated in individual locations today. Blending indoor Wi-Fi with cellular networks will help these systems to make faster, better and in time more predictive decisions.

This presents a both a challenge and a huge opportunity for service providers. Read More »

Almost a quarter of the world’s television households — more than 300 million, in fact — are connected, in some way, shape or form, with the Videoscape components we make. We celebrate 25 years of partnerships with over 150 service providers Read More »
