CMX Analytics at Cisco Live! San Francisco 2014

Cisco Live! San Francisco was the biggest Cisco Live! yet—25,000 attendees. Read Chris’s blog for more on the network at Cisco Live! You also heard about the Mobility Services APIs enabling location-based services and location-enabled application development in Neha’s blog yesterday. The event also marked a milestone for our CMX team: successful location tracking of all 30,000 devices in the conference center with a single pair of MSEs (Mobility Services Engine) running on 7.6MR2 code to generate analytics and reports based on device location!

Let’s take a closer look at location analytics generated at Cisco Live! If you haven’t seen CMX Analytics before, let me tell you: it’s powerful. There are three pieces of CMX Analytics: Dashboard, Analytics and Reports, all generated by the location data from the MSE. Here are a few key views from the show floor:

Hourly Visitors for South Halls on Tuesday May 20

Tuesday marked a steady flow through the day with the World of Solutions and breakout sessions all day. You see that spike at 5pm? That’s when the beverages and refreshments came out—and then you see people tapering off round 7pm to head out for dinner.

The Network After 25 Years of Cisco Live!

#clus1A lot can change in 25 years. At the first Cisco Live (then known as Networkers conferences) in 1989, 200 geeks gathered for the inaugural event. Fast forward to three weeks ago, when we welcomed a whopping 25,000 attendees into the arms of our namesake, beautiful San Francisco.

We heard there was some interest in how the network performed at the show, so I wanted to share some of the interesting statistics about the network at Cisco Live! I shudder at the thought of the ancient network from 25 years ago. So here we go:

This year we saw 30,705 unique devices, with 7000 in the theater for John Chambers’ keynote.

Oracle OpenWorld: Cisco + Oracle = UCS Collaboration

September 23, 2010 at 12:00 pm PST

It’s that conference time of year — this week it’s Oracle OpenWorld 2010, taking place in San Francisco. This annual conference draws attendees from around the world to learn about product developments in all layers of the stack, from applications, database and middleware, to servers and storage systems. I once again headed down to the Moscone Center in downtown SF to get news from the event. (Seems like I’m at Moscone a lot these days—I might as well set up a booth for myself!)

Cisco is a Platinum sponsor of this year’s conference: We have a booth showcasing Cisco and Oracle data center and industry solutions, such as Oracle Real Applications Clusters on Cisco’s Unified Computing System. Visitors to the booth get all the latest deets about Application Networking Services (ANS) and Application Control Engine (ACE) Integration with Oracle.

Attendees at a breakout session heard from Oracle and Cisco about UCS, data center architectures, and how the companies are working together with our partners to deliver customer solutions.  I visited with folks from Oracle and Cisco and learned how solutions from both companies are helping customer NaviSite increase profits and efficiency.

And, be sure to watch the interview I did with customer NaviSite.
