Some Updates to Cisco.com Product Pages

September 17, 2011 at 1:55 pm PST

You may notice this weekend that we’re doing some updates to the product series and model pages on Cisco.com. These are simple and subtle changes, but we think they’ll make it easier and quicker to get to the information you need.

I’ll write more later, but here’s a preview and a quick overview:

Series and Models Update View

1 -- Pictures enlarge more gracefully, but still open in a separate box so you can keep browsing around.
2 -- Most important links now featured at the top of the page, for easy access.
3 -- Comparisons and other key features made more obvious.
4 -- Facebook Like and other features in a new standard location
5 -- Streamlined Let Us Help and Contact information, which also routes to different places depending on the product and your role.
6 -- All the key support you rely on.

Enjoy — and if you have additional suggestions or notice anything is amiss, send us a note via the “Feedback” link that’s at the bottom of every Cisco.com page.

Video and Virtualization: Just Another Day at Citrix Synergy

May 26, 2011 at 6:03 pm PST

If what I saw at the Citrix Synergy conference in San Francisco this week is any indication of what will be coming soon, I’d better invest in a personal hairstylist.

With video becoming more and more prevalent on the network, whether it be mobile phones, Cisco Cius and other tablets, IP phones, or TelePresence – there isn’t a question of whether or not video is here to stay. But one question remains: Is your network ready? (And maybe one more question: how does my hair look?)

If your customers haven’t prepared their networks yet, here’s something that might give them the extra boost that they need: Cisco’s Visual Networking Index (VNI) Forecasted that videos will account for 90% of network traffic by 2013.

By selling Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI), you’ll help customers prepare for that change. We visited the Cisco booth at the conference and caught up with Cisco’s Operations Director Jeff Platon. He gave us a full tour of the end-to-end VXI system with products that utilize high-definition video.

Watch the full tour:
