“Everywhere we go in the world, the things that we come across aren’t intelligent. Like this wall that I’m looking at, it’s just separating the room from the other side. In actuality, that wall should be intelligent.”
He goes on to say, “The next 10 years [will be] nuts.” I couldn’t agree more.
Cisco defines IoE as bringing together people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before—turning information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, individuals, and countries.
To help more people “get it,” I thought it would be useful to provide more detail about each of the components—people, process, data, and things—that make up IoE. Read More »
Often we focus on the challenges associated with IT with little consideration of the end user viewpoint. In Cisco’s Work Your Way Global Study, completed in January of 2013, we polled over 1300 IT professionals and business-focused end users around the globe to investigate how BYOD is not only affecting IT, but how the challenges directly impact the end user experience. We were curious to compare and contrast the different viewpoints to understand if the difficulties IT was facing had an impact on how end users get their devices on the network, access business applications and perform day-to-day activities on the move.

We’ve been hearing a lot about the transition to the Internet of Everything, and the billions of new devices that will be coming online in the next few years. But the Internet of Everything is not only about connected things, it’s about the amazing things that will happen when you connect people, process, and data with those things. And in today’s fast-moving world, these new connections must be mobile, adapting to let you work or communicate the way you choose—anywhere, without compromise.
When you support mobility with an intelligent network, the result is much more than the sum of its parts. As people, processes, data and things all join together on the Internet, the intelligent network listens, learns, and can take action to make connections more relevant and valuable.
We’re witnessing an increasingly mobile Internet of Everything taking shape around us today. For example, the Palomar Health Medical Center in San Diego is connecting its healthcare environment over a wireless network to provide a better experience for patients. So doctors can securely pull up a patient’s health record on a smart phone or tablet anywhere at the medical center. Or receive a wireless alert the moment a lab test is ready. Next generation programs include mobile robots that let patients roam around the hospital and videoconference with families and caregivers.
The possibilities are endless. How could infinite connections and an intelligent, mobile network help you save your employees time? Make their jobs easier? Or improve the way your kids learn? Learn more at The Platform blog.
We’ve been hearing a lot about the transition to the Internet of Everything, and the billions of new devices that will be coming online in the next few years. It’s clear that the network isn’t just for PCs, smartphones, and tablets anymore. We’re entering an age where home appliances, disposable consumer gadgets, and even buildings will be on the net and sharing information.
But the Internet of Everything is not only about connected things, it’s about the amazing things that will happen when you connect people, process and data with those things —and change the way we work, live, play, and learn. And in today’s fast-moving world, these new connections must be mobile.
Internet video traffic is growing at an unprecedented pace according to the latest Cisco Visual Networking Index. Globally, Internet video traffic will be 55 percent of all consumer Internet traffic in 2016, up from 51 percent in 2011. The sum of all forms of video (TV, video on demand [VoD], Internet and P2P) will be approximately 86 percent of global consumer traffic by 2016.
To meet the increasing demands of high-quality video traffic over the network, Cisco today announced two new certifications (CCNA Video and Cisco Video Network Specialist) designed to allow traditional analog audiovisual (Pro A/V) specialists, as well as other networking professionals, to extend their skills to meet the growing demand for networked video job roles.
Check out this short video about how Cisco’s training and certifications expand career opportunities and support the evolution of video solutions.
