Going to Interop? Keynote Preview With This Fun Video

When you walk into the exhibition hall, you’ll see Cisco’s booth (1327)*, front and center.  This is our home-base and where a lot of activity will happen.  Stop by to check out live demos, to get your questions answered, to hear our technology experts give quick theater presentations, and to check out our NOC.  If you use Cisco gear (and I’ll assume that you do if you’re reading this blog) you’ll want to stop by to get the latest updates.

We’re trying something new – we’ll have a working NOC in our booth. Read More »
