Having a lot of fun this year at Interop 2012. We are shooting and editing in a much tighter workflow so that we can publish these things same day and thank gosh! The stories are numerous and oh so timely. Follow along as I attempt to recap our first full day on the show floor.
Jim Frey recently wrote a white paper called Closing the Loop for Effective Network Operations Management and he stopped by to chat about some of the key points made.
As he describes it: Cisco has developed and introduced Prime Assurance Manager with one essential goal in mind – to provide end-to-end operational monitoring visibility, spanning data center to and through the branch, as a means for facilitating efficient operations and proactively protecting network-delivered applications and network availability, network performance, application performance, and end user experience data across both wired and wireless environments, coupled with troubleshooting and reporting features.
Jim is going to be going even deeper with an hour long seminar on May 15.

We updated our little corner of the Cisco YouTube page with some new playlist categories. Now its easy to find my favorite quick hits – Networking 101.
Couple of great new videos have been up here recently as @jimmyray_purser rolls ‘em out!
Networking 101: What is an ASIC?
Is a custom application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) really a big deal in networking devices? Jimmy Ray Purser walks us through the difference between custom and full custom ASIC designs. Watch an overview of the steps involved in ASIC design. Learn the the difference between “programmable” ASICs and how to determine the difference between various ASIC models.
Networking 101: Quality of Service
How well do you know QoS? We all throw the term around but are we all truly comfortable with it? Jimmy Ray breaks it down at the packet level and shares the one rule you must never forget.
Networking 101: Switch Latency
Understanding how switch performance is measured can make the difference with application performance. The terminology of switch latency in various switching methods and the methodology to obtain the most accurate latency measurements make it easy to play games with the numbers. Watch this episode of Networking 101 with Jimmy Ray from TechWiseTV and arm yourself with knowledge.

What is the saying, two great tastes that taste great (better) together? This is in essence, the best way to describe the value of putting your Cisco Unified Communications on the Cisco Unified Computing Platform. While its certainly logical that we do something like this but and to the benefit of our customers, we have steadily increased the number of materials that help explain not just why this can be a huge cost and workflow savings, but also how one goes about doing it.
You can get a lot of written details but we of course suggest you watch one of our latest in the ‘Fundamentals’ series to get you ready.
Bonus points for the learners among you after the jump.
