We had so much fun last year…and so far, they are letting us come back. We had fun doing a little promo for the trip…an excuse really…to let Jimmy Ray play dress up, let me work on my Alfred Molina impression and most of all…let Producer Steve Ewertz loose so he can shoot/edit/compose the way he likes!
CleanAir continues to provide significant differentiation for Cisco Wireless as well it should. What many don’t realize, is how much of the attractive visualization and control is not from CleanAir itself, but CleanAir plus the Mobility Services Engine. I would go as far as to say there are several very important distinctions for why the MSE should be considered a mandatory element within any Cisco Wireless Design.
Mobility is, and continues to remain a top business priority for service providers around the globe and one of Cisco’s five company priorities. There is an insatiable desire in the market for connectivity anytime, anywhere and on all the latest devices.
At Cisco, we are uniquely positioned with an architecture that spans from the client -- to the network -- to the cloud to meet these demands. We are constantly innovating to further define mobility technology and solutions across all of these areas to address service provider challenges of network reach and network intelligence. This unique position makes us attractive to both customers and prospective employees. Read More »
Last month, a colleague stopped me and said, “Kit, it’s only November. Isn’t it too early to be discussing Mobile World Congress?” My answer, as you might have guessed, was an emphatic “no!”
This will be my 11th Mobile World Congress (MWC) and, for those of us actively engaged in the mobile space, it is the event of the year. It brings over 60,000 members of the mobility community—vendors, service providers, analysts and the media—all under the same roof for four full days to innovate, collaborate and shape the future of the industry.
A few weeks back, I signed off from my old role and spoke of my transition into the big bet of mobility for Cisco. I’m happy to say that I’m squarely in my new seat and thankfully, it’s one that my predecessors have done a tremendous job at. The accelerated pace of investment and focus for Cisco in mobility is a major reason for my transition. This is a role that is to spearhead a company wide marketing effort around a slew of compelling new technologies that will come to market over the next few months. We have much to crow about at Cisco heading into MWC and I hope we’re able to credibly show our customers why Cisco is a transformational partner for their mobility needs.
The next few months will no doubt be filled with excitement but more importantly, the focus of my attention is to accelerate Cisco’s SP mobility offer to address customers’ monetization and optimization challenges. Starting this month our drum-beat begins.
