If you’re at CiscoLive Milan you have many opportunities to learn about our newest technology announcements.  But how well do you know our current technology?  If you know it well you could win a prize!  Stop by the Cisco Enterprise Networks booth to play the trivia challenge on one of the iPads behind the reception desk.  The trivia is 15 multiple choice questions from a bank of over 150 questions on our Enterprise Networks technologies -- including campus switching, branch routing and enterprise mobility.  Some questions are easy, and I think some will challenge you.

We will be drawing from the top winners on Wednesday afternoon and winners will be alerted via email.  Stop by the booth (Wed evening or Thursday) to claim your prize!  You can win an iPad, GoPro, or Kindle.

Stop by the booth to play and download the app to track your progress!
