TechWiseTV Workshop SAP and the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS)

August 25, 2011 at 2:08 pm PST

Visit Cisco Live Virtual on Wednesday, September 7th at 10am Pacific to view the live TechWiseTV Workshop “SAP and the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS)”. The Cisco Unified Computing System serves as an ideal server platform for SAP since it provides a unique Intel Xeon processor-based industry-standard infrastructure for enterprise-critical applications such as SAP. The Cisco UCS platform offers stateless computing capabilities with dynamic server provisioning, unified fabric, and comprehensive management across both physical and virtual environments for reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). When you combine the UCS platform with Tidal Intelligent Automation software for SAP, you now have a safe, secure, platform that is protected from within the platform itself. As a result the Cisco UCS platform is quickly becoming the server platform of choice for mission-critical solutions from SAP. Experts will be available 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.

Eco-City

June 24, 2011 at 1:36 pm PST

Rivas is a city of 70,000 inhabitants, in the suburbs of Madrid. With only a cursory glance, Rivas looks very similar to perhaps thousands of others in Europe. On the inside however, it is one of the most innovative cities in the world. Several years ago, the Mayor of Rivas adopted a vision of putting “everything on IP”. The objective was to become a “zero emission” city by 2030, an ambitious goal shared only by one other city in Europe (Copenhagen, DK).

It is amazing to see just how much has been accomplished.

Our brand new Outdoor Wireless show just launched today -- you can register and watch it here.. but these are the shownotes for your reference..and they make more sense if you watch the show!

Seamless, Scalable, Capable, Unique applications

Mobility is about more than just wireless of course…but even among our wireless coverage, we need to get outside. Outdoor wireless comes with its own unique set of challenges…they fall into a lot of the same categories of course: Interference, Propagation, Noise, to name a few but in general:

So, a focus on education is in order as are some new toys to play with -- most notably the Aironet 1550 Series OUTDOOR Access Point.
