Welcome back to another week of The Network’s top stories! We have an exciting week coming up, with Cisco Live in Las Vegas- if you by any chance have any extra plane tickets, feel free to send them my way. Even if you aren’t making your way down to Vegas, stay tuned. We have plenty of exciting stories happening here as well.
We will create, share and curate content on these topics as a part of our overall Cisco voice. We have also commissioned world-class reporters who have worked at Fortune, Forbes, BusinessWeek, Wall Street Journal, AP and more to create content on our core technology news topics. The purpose of these stories isn’t to showcase Cisco, but to create compelling content in the topical areas that we care about.
Check out this introductory video on “The Network” to learn more about the new site!
