News@Cisco Week in Review and Look Ahead: April 25-28

A live webcast debate, an invitation to the royal wedding and much more! Cisco has been busy this week. Check out what you might have missed!

1.) When “Good Enough” is Not Good Enough

This week Cisco began to debunk the myth of the “good enough” network. There are some vendors that say the network still just connects things and all you need is a tactical network, capable of addressing existing business requirements and current challenges. We call this the “Good Enough Network.” Cisco wants to debunk the myth that “good” is good enough for your business.

On Wednesday, April 27, Cisco hosted a webcast with Rob Lloyd, Cisco’s EVP of Worldwide Operations, and other executives as they outlined the seven most common misperceptions about taking a tactical, multi-vendor approach to building business-critical networks. Watch a replay of the webcast and look for Cisco to continue to debunk the seven myths in the weeks to come!

Vote Early, Vote Often for Cisco and ASR 9000

B-to-B Social Media AwardsAnd the winner is…the Cisco ASR 9000 Test Drive! B-to-B Magazine awarded Cisco the “Best Use of Viral Video in a Marketing Campaign.” But wait, there’s more.  The Cisco ASR 9000 Test Drive is also one of three finalists for B-to-B Magazine’s “People’s Choice” Award.  So, please see for yourself and VOTE for Cisco (we’re second on the list and you can watch the video below).

What matters most, however, is that customers have loved this demo. You can be told that the Cisco ASR 9000 has been architected and optimized to deliver non-stop video content. But until you see the difference for yourself, you may remain a skeptic.  So, we took the saying “seeing is believing” to heart and enabled anyone to take the Cisco ASR 9000 on a test drive and see just how this aggregation router delivers video packets flawlessly.  With a push of a button, you can control a robot to remove the route switch processor card from the Cisco ASR 9000 and watch as video is delivered uninterrupted.
