Eighteen months ago, when the original Apple iPad was announced, I posted a blog here posing a simple question: “Apple iPad, in the enterprise?” The obvious answer, to me at least, was a resounding “Yes”. Today, it seems that professionals and employers alike would agree. The former like to bring and operate their own devices at work, and the latter are buying these devices to boost employee productivity.
In this six-part blog series titled “Tablets Welcomed.” I will be posting short video clips (3 questions in 3 minutes) of interviews with Cisco leaders, that walk you through the Cisco solution for providing access to any device, securely, reliably, and seamlessly.
Today, I am talking to Tom Wilburn, Vice President of Sales for Cisco Wireless, who has experienced this market transition firsthand. Watch Tom here as he answers:
- How has the influx of new mobile devices changed IT?
- What are the consequences companies need to confront?
- What are some compelling tablet use cases?

Today, I’m pleased to announce a new addition to the ūmi family — the Cisco ūmi mobile app is now available for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Android devices.
The ūmi mobile app is a cool new way for ūmi subscribers to access video messages and recorded videos on the go. In addition, you can use your mobile device’s touchscreen to add/edit contacts easily with the onscreen keyboard, or even as a remote control for ūmi on your HDTV.
The ūmi team is continuing to work hard to bring new innovative features and experiences to our subscribers. This mobile app is another example of how we are making ūmi the biggest, best, and easiest home video communications experience available.
Remember the old days when work meant sitting at your desk, typing away at your desktop computer, at the office? There was no such thing as a smart phone or even a laptop or a tweet – you just sat at your desk and waited for the network, which was probably running at 56k dial-up speeds or slower. (Now I probably sound like my father who told me he had to walk uphill to school in the snow every day.)
These days, we don’t need to be tied to a desk, but we also expect much more of our networks: they need to be fast, secure, run the applications we need, and allow employees to work anywhere, anytime, and on any device.
So how to design an enterprise network with enough flexibility and security to address users’ needs without CIOs and IT managers having coronaries in the process? And how can enterprise networks live harmoniously (and securely) with our many devices, from smart phones to iPads to laptops?
As we continue the Seven Myths of the Good-Enough Network series over on Silicon Angle, Cisco’s Mike Rau--Vice President, CTO for the Borderless Network Architecture--tackles those questions and more as he dispels the second myth: bolt-on security.
