Cisco Live Milan: Service Provider Business Transformation Straight Ahead

Igor PhotoGuest blog by Igor Dayen, SP Product and Solutions Marketing
Cisco Live Milan 2015 has just concluded and concluded with a bang of record-breaking attendance and increased customers’ understanding of the IoE and service provider Technologies. In my first post-show blog, I focused on the overall booth offerings and discussed relevance of Evolved Services Platform (ESP) and Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) to service providers’ success and the importance of properly addressing their requirements. I decided that it is important enough to provide additional highlights on the Cisco Live event.   Before I share with you the remaining demo information, I wanted to recap the technologies that I described in the first post-show blog:

  1. nV Technology to simplify operations in the Network edge
  2. Segment Routing to enabled SDN-based routing and simplifying network operations
  3. Operational Simplicity enabled by Autonomic Networking in the Access
  4. Network Service Orchestration using Tail-f
  5. Virtualized Managed Business Services: delivering Cloud VPN

The above mentioned technologies are key innovations and bring a wealth of choices to the service provider when they create and deliver services to their business and residential users.

Be Fearless: The Internet of Women –YOU!

It’s amazing that March 8 2015 International Women’s Day is already upon us: It is not only the time to celebrate women globally, but to urge everyone to action in support of women, especially women in technology.

I recently presented at the Womensphere Summit on STEM on February 25 2015 to share my own journey and vision of what can be:

For me, success, is when we, collectively celebrate our women technologists daily because it is so engrained in our DNA to do so.
