A belated Happy New Year from Cisco Live London 2013! This is our last year in London, and it was an excellent sendoff bringing the latest for medianet to our great partners and customers in the European market. With the greater adoption of medianet technologies, we saw the incorporation of medianet features within the general design sessions related to Jabber deployment, to Access Switching, WAN Network Designs  and even a few Management  sessions. (Some of the session links provide a video capture of the session as well as a download of the content)
Meanwhile, the event brought an introduction to Medianet Flow Metadata  as well as Media Services Proxy , which allows the sharing of attributes of flows with the network. The network can then use these attributes for advanced classification, for example, to match the audio leg of a Jabber for Windows session. We had a demo station setup where we showed the quality of metadata-based classification of Jabber video compared to other forms of video that did not benefit from advanced classification. Of course, there were a number of other demo stations showing the network management utilization of medianet features for monitoring and reporting on network performance, namely Performance Monitor  and Mediatrace .

A year ago, I met our customers and partners at Cisco Live London and demonstrated the power of medianet for Cisco TelePresence for my first time. It was a time of a few other firsts including my first time in London, first time eating fish and chips, and first time being stranded in an airport.
Continuing on this theme of “firsts,” we have some exciting new things to showcase at Cisco Live London this year! For the first time, we will be showing the value of medianet end-to-end with demos in both our Enterprise Network and Collaboration areas. We have expanded our portfolio of medianet-enabled products to include Cisco Jabber, Cisco VXI, and more Cisco TelePresence endpoints. Stop by the World of Solutions and experience the quality difference between non- and medianet-enabled endpoints. And what’s new with our core networking? You can learn how we made our networks much smarter with abilities to recognize third party endpoints and applications.
The medianet team recently added a Cisco Medianet Playlist to the Cisco YouTube channel. The playlist archives videos produced by the medianet team over the last few years and will be updated as new videos are created.
Medianet is Cisco’s recommended best practice architecture for video and collaboration. Medianet simplifies and reduces the cost of deploying and managing video and collaboration applications, with features that help you perform faster troubleshooting and enhance the quality of user experience end- to-end. The videos in the playlist will help you learn more about Cisco Medianet features and technologies through general overview videos and technology demos.
