I was given the opportunity to walk around the expo floor at Interop NY 2011 today before I spent some time working in the booth, speaking with customers, and presenting in our theater on the show floor. There were many good conversations around the value proposition of UCS, the magic of service profiles (UCS Manager) to drive automation into server management and reduce operator time spent on tedious configuration chores, the new Nexus 7009, and Cisco’s Virtualized Multi-Tenant Data Center (VMDC) solution design for private and service provider clouds.
Next week from Monday, October 3rd to Friday, October 7th, Interop NY will be in full swing.
As usual, Cisco will be at the Expo and represented in various sessions throughout the event. We’ll have a big booth (#121) where Cisco representatives will be on hand to discuss and demo current Cisco technologies in: IPv6, UCS, MediaNet, WAAS, Secure-X, and more. We’re also a premiere sponsor of InteropNet, where Cisco is leading the design of the show network, featuring 10 gig over copper connectivity and Cisco’s Prime management system and wireless technologies — offering full IPv6 capabilities. Engineer-led booth tours will be available each day at the InteropNet NOC booth.

Dave Evans, Cisco’s Chief Futurist, recently posted an infographic in his blog that detailed the fascinating growth of the “Internet of things” – ATMs, kiosks, vending machines, smart meters, digital signage, refrigerator… And then he posted the question: “With this increase, how will you prepare your network for the future? “
