One of the reasons I personally love our collaboration technologies is that I am a productivity nerd. I am a zero-inbox follower of David Allen’s GTD methodology that loves nothing more than tinkering with my ‘perspectives’ in Omni-Focus. It is a great time to be at Cisco and I am blessed to have this TechWiseTV show that affords me access to the best engineering minds and the latest technologies.
Tablets are taking the networking world by storm! As engineers, the real fun and value to the network comes when you start designing your own apps -- custom made apps for YOUR business, but programming is not something you learn overnight. This is where the Cisco Cius comes in – with one of the best developer programs available…designed for everyone from Android beginners, to veteran Android developers looking for new opportunities in the enterprise!
The Cisco Cius utilizes the full power of the Android SDK and delivers additional functionality to developers with Cisco Cius Add-on. Join Cisco’s TechWiseTV Chief Geek Jimmy Ray Purser as he hosts one of Cisco’s top Cius code jockeys Larry Michalewicz. We are going to start from the beginning and show you how to build your very first Cius app. We’ll be with you all the way to show you the basics of getting started, using development tools, testing, permissions and how to use the Cisco developer community for your future apps as well. Be cautioned, writing apps is addictive! You’ll never look at your network the same way again. If your apps are good enough, you can even sell then in the Cisco App Store!
Want to learn how to get started with application development, then this is the workshop for you! Experts will be available at the live event for Q&A.

“Remember the days of measuring bandwidth by the Baud?“1
The awesome guys at TechwiseTV just made a really fun video on understanding the Fundamentals of WAAS (Wide Area Application Services), Cisco’s WAN Optimization technology. They start off with the basics – what you need to think about for WAN Optimization – and finish up with where the technology is going.

Visit Cisco Live Virtual on Wednesday, October 12th at 10am Pacific to view the live TechWiseTV Workshop “Unleash the Power in Your Network with UPOE”. Join Cisco’s TechWiseTV Chief Geek Jimmy Ray Purser as he hosts one of our favorite guests Nikhil Sharma, Cisco Technical Marketing Engineer, and a panel of Universal Power Over Ethernet experts. We’ll dive into what UPOE is and is not, go through the CDP and LLDP TLV’s to see how power is delivered, and look at various design innovations the 60W enables on the network. Ready to get rid of all those cables on your users desktops? Join us in the UPOE revolution! Bring your questions for live Q&A. Access is free. Attendees to Cisco Live Virtual can access over 1,600 keynotes, super sessions and technical sessions, as well as network with peers, visit our World of Solutions, and play games.

UPOE, or Universal Power over Ethernet, is the latest innovation from Cisco with broad, positive implications for many enterprise operations. We are not new at this. Cisco has been pushing the standards since 2000 for the incorporation of electrical power running on the same cable as data.
UPOE is a big milestone as we can now consolidate 60 watts on a single CAT5E cable. The flexibility that this enables cannot be overstated. Multiple third party vendors are jumping into the ecosystem here as dynamic environments using Virtual Desktops with integrated monitors, IP Turret systems for trading floors, not to mention building management, physical security and host of networking devices such as AP’s and compact switches that are often installed in very obscure locations.
The Catalyst 4500E is the initial beneficiary of this industry first for Cisco and this episode of TechWiseTV covers not just the use case and deployment examples as we go hands on with the big switch, but also a unique deep dive into understanding just how this works. A full appreciation for the engineering talent behind this innovation is warranted on this one when we go beyond the power negotiation and get into the physics of heat dissipation and other hurdles that had to be overcome. It’s the action packed TechWiseTV you have come to expect!
