Mobile World Congress 2014 continues this week in Barcelona with record attendances.
Many SP’s are exploring new ways to monetize their network investments, in an earlier posting some of these models were explored. Again this week these topics were again very much to the forefront with Service Providers actively discussing and exploring how to take the first steps to exploit this.

Mobile World Congress 2014 is underway at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain.
As well as providing the WiFi network to the event, which has over 1200 access points covering the 2.6m sq feet conference venues, Cisco had a number of exciting demos within the booth area in Hall 3.
Cisco’s theme is around utilizing your network infrastructure for business outcomes, being more intelligent, utilizing analytics and delivering capabilities and monetization opportunities.
Utilizing location based information along with various other network related information interesting dashboards and views of the event are possible. These screens show how using the Cisco open infrastructure various sources of data are combined in to a graphical view of the Fira conference venue during day 1 of MWC 2014. Read More »

Today is the final day of a very busy and successful Cisco Live Milan 2014. Read my initial observations from the event earlier this week.
As the event draws to a close, lets look at some of the location analytics available via Cisco’s Connected Mobile Experiences solution (CMX) and perhaps try to answer some of the following questions about the event.
For this I will just focus on the World of Solutions Show floor -- approximately 800,000 sq feet in size, and containing all the Cisco Booths and the partner displays.
- How many people actually visited the world of solutions?
- How many people did the different Cisco Booths attract?
- Where was the busiest part of the show floor?
These and other insights can be derived from looking at the business intelligence that emerges from CMX. Read More »

Cisco SVP of HQ Sales -- Japan, Yasufumi Hirai, and I had the privilege to meet Sheryl Sandberg earlier this month at a private luncheon reception sponsored by Nikkei Weekly News. We were so inspired by her. She gave me a hug when I mentioned I was from Cisco. She says “John Chambers has been so supportive with Lean In and Cisco is doing amazing things.” Prior to the luncheon, she met with Japan Prime Minister Abe.
Sheryl mentioned she is not an expert in Japan but understands that the challenges for Japanese women are much harder. She clearly did her homework on Japan provided useful data on Japan’s diversity demographics. Her advice to Japan:
1. Address stereotypes and bias that hold women back. For example, women are viewed as caregivers and nurturers. Men are viewed as providers.
2. Change corporate policies like the gender pay gap, long work hours and re-invite women back after maternity leave. Make men feel more comfortable working with women.
3. Achieve more balance in the home.
Enjoy the photo! The Ustream of the Japan Evening Session is below. Sheryl presents at 1 min. 30 sec. I truly felt her positive energy.

We’re counting down the days until the Social Media for Savvy Marketers event on April 18 and 19 at the Cisco Headquarters in San Jose and online. As I’m writing this post, we’re doing audio and visual checks and working out the final details. Personally, I’m super excited about Cisco hosting this event for the 4th year in a row and would like to thank everyone who has reached out to me or someone on the Corporate Social Media Marketing team about this event via Twitter, email, or any other ways.
