Cisco Live Orlando is a just little over a month away. And at this year’s event, the Cisco Medianet team will be hosting a much anticipated, highly interactive, customer panel that brings together customers from different industries, all of whom have demonstrated success adopting the Cisco Medianet Architecture to better manage their video and collaboration deployments.
As you start planning what sessions you will be attending at Cisco Live Orlando, don’t miss out on this opportunity to participate in an engaging discussion with industry experts and distinguished Cisco SMEs about trending topics of relevance to the video and collaboration space: for example, balancing business policies with the network, providing confidence in video and collaboration deployments, and integrated application and network technologies.
Also, be sure to stay tuned to the Cisco Medianet Blog for future updates on what the team is planning at Cisco Live Orlando.
We look forward to seeing you there!

If you are deploying or managing video and collaboration applications, you might have realized that providing good quality experience for users can quickly become complex and costly as you deploy so many different applications and endpoints from different vendors at the same time in the same infrastructure.
The figure below compares voice and video applications. As you can see, the characteristics of voice applications are very consistent when compared with the different video applications. Different video applications have different bandwidth requirements; traffic is bursty, unpredictable and highly compressed and often available in a variety of form factors from different vendors.

Hello IP Surveillance Enthusiasts,
ISC West was held at Las Vegas between Apr 10-12, and we continued the engagements with our partners on Cisco Medianet Plugfest here. Plugfest was launched at ASIS Philadelphia in September 2012, and from then till now, we have been actively working on getting partners on-boarded into Cisco’s MSP Cisco Developer Network (CDN) program, evaluating the test results gathered during ASIS and making recommendations to partners on improving interoperability with the network.
At ISC West, we had the wonderful opportunity to touch base with many of our partners already in CDN, and the ones we are closely working with on the process.
These were the sessions/interactions we had on Plugfest at ISC West -

We came together at ASIS, September 2012 in Philadelphia and made good progress with Plugfest – The Media Services Proxy (MSP) CDN program for validating the interoperability of your IP Surveillance cameras with the Cisco Network. We shared with you the capabilities of MSP, the value it can bring for you, and had a live lab where we tested (plug-and-play) your cameras with the MSP software at the event.
Since then we have been working with many of you on getting you on boarded with the CDN program so you could be our official partners, and have also been working on analyzing the lab data we gathered at ASIS.
We will be at ISC West 2013 to share our progress and next steps with you. I take great pleasure in inviting you to our sessions at ISC West –
