Cisco Live! has come to a close and I want my first Cisco Guest Blog post to be about my amazing week in Orlando.  I am a Wireless Engineer based in St. Petersburg, Florida and I try to make it to Cisco Live! as often as possible (which has been every other year recently).

The Keynotes were great this year.  I loved the Opening presentation by Cisco CEO John Chambers on the Internet of Everything but I think my favorite was the presentation by Dave Evans @DaveTheFuturist on the future of the IoE and how our world will keep connecting.  The Closing Keynote with Sir Richard Branson was great.  Check out the video of it and the other keynotes on Cisco Live 365! as well.

I also attended a Cisco ISE TECSEC-3671 Tech section on Sunday and it was filled with excellent information.  If you are interested in ISE (Cisco Identity Service Engine) take a look at this two hour version of the class. You’ll need to register on the Cisco Live 365!, which is free. at Cisco Live 365! If you don’t know about ISE this PDF gives an excellent overview. In the course of the conference I had the chance to take some amazing sessions and the presenters are always leaders in their field so the Q&A is almost as good as the session.

As much as it seems everything is digital these days, our world is almost entirely analog. However, digital technology (and its massive potential to revolutionize our world) is trending toward mainstream popularity, in spite of traditionally being relegated to the minds of the ‘geeky’ few. The reason for this trend is simpler than it might initially appear and it’s the topic of this post. Read More »
