On March 12th, Cisco announced the ISR-AX and how Cisco is changing the game, reducing complexity and making it simpler for enterprises to deliver and manage application delivery to users. Cisco is expanding the role of our Integrated Service Routers (ISRs) to deliver application-centric networks that provide granular visibility, control, and optimization without additional devices or bandwidth upgrades – Cisco® Application Experience (AX) Router family is now a part of the ISR family of routers! The Cisco ISR-AX Routers directly integrate Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS), Application Visibility and Control (AVC), Data/IPBase and Security services into a platform that is simple to order, configure, and deploy for secure, optimized cloud connectivity and branch-office routing. The Cisco ISR G2 and ISR-AX Routers are based on the same hardware and software that you know and love and are deploying today. Today I wanted to go into the technical details of each of the components. Read More »

This is our sixth preview of what Cisco will be showcasing at the 102nd National Retail Federation Convention and Expo on January 14 and 15, 2013 in New York City.
Today’s retail stores need be more technology enabled than ever before supporting new generation of shoppers that expect a convergence of physical and digital experiences. Today’s retail information technology teams need to enable mobility, cloud computing and video technologies to create a create a compelling shopping environment.
In our store in a box demonstration, we will demonstrate how Cisco can help you consolidate in-store servers to increases business agility and reduce operating costs. In our simulated in-store environment, we will demonstrate how we can support in a single chassis: routing, switching, a virtualized point-of-sale application on unified computing, unified workspace for store reporting, physical security with video surveillance and in store wireless access.
With this lean and agile platform, retailers can support today and tomorrow’s technology needs in a cost effective manner.
Please watch this video about the Store-in-a-Box demonstration and then mark your calendar to join us at Cisco Booth #252 at NRF 2013.
I look forward to seeing you there!

There has been recent speculation on Cisco’s WAAS business, but let’s set the record straight: to paraphrase Mark Twain, rumors of WAAS’ demise have been greatly exaggerated. Cisco is fully committed to the WAAS business. We have made some changes in our go-to-market approach, but our engineering teams remain fully engaged and working against our long term roadmap to drive application awareness into the network. To better leverage the capabilities of the teams, Cisco integrated the WAAS teams directly into our access router group, which now allows us to leverage a large set of developers and to focus on our Cloud Intelligent Network architecture, Cloud Connect Solutions and the L4-7 technologies which support the cloud transition.
