Cisco Recognizes Top Partners at 2014 Collaboration Summit

November 17, 2014 at 7:30 am PST

Last night, we kicked off the 10th Cisco Collaboration Summit at the JW Marriott Live in Los Angeles with an awards dinner to honor our partners around the world. Rowan Trollope, Collaboration Technology Group SVP, and I had the privilege of playing masters of ceremonies for the event. Cisco recognized 27 partners for their exemplary performance across 11 categories.

Last night’s fun, excitement, and anticipation was the perfect opening for what’s in store for us over these next few days. Today’s keynotes with John Chambers, Chairman and CEO, Jonathan Rosenberg, VP of the Collaboration Technology Group, Aaron Levie, CEO of Box, and Rowan will reveal amazing new innovations and opportunities that will put collaboration front and center for all of us in 2015. (Be sure to tune into the live streaming event at 1:30 p.m. Pacific or watch the on-demand replay.) You will see that partners are integral to the success of Cisco’s collaboration business. What we achieved this past year, working together, makes it clear we can only reimagine collaboration for our customers by doing it together.

On behalf of Cisco, we thank you for your partnership and applaud you on your success.

Summary: No consensus at IETF, but it’s not over yet

November 19, 2013 at 6:57 am PST

Recently Cisco made significant efforts around open sourcing our H.264 implementation, including covering the MPEG-LA licensing costs for distribution and working with Mozilla to add support for H.264. However, in this attempt to unstick the logjam that has occurred in the standards bodies, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) failed to reach consensus on the selection of a common video codec.

Cisco’s Jonathan Rosenberg explored this topic more in a recent Collaboration blog post. Read on to find out how we’re planning to move forward and why this conversation is definitely not over!
