“Activate the IT Transformation with Cisco Unified Access” Webinar Series: Part II Network Deep Dive, April 17
Your network is going through rapid changes as your user and business requirements continue to evolve. Before long (if it’s not already happening), the edge of your network will more than likely transition to a high performing Gigabit desktop switching network plus a highly reliable Gigabit Wi-Fi (802.11ac) network. Cisco Converged Access is an innovative deployment mode that has been optimized to support both the Gigabit Ethernet based and the Gigabit Wi-Fi based edge as a single network with excellent scale, security, and performance.

If you had US$15,000 to take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go? I’ve always wanted to visit Perth, Bangalore, and Brasilia myself, but sadly, I’m not elligable to win the Unified Access Challenge. However, if you’re reading this -- you probably are! Basically, you watch an accelerated TechWiseTV episode with JimmyRay Purser, Robb Boyd (with a short Ike video too), and then answer a few questions about Unified Access.
The challenge is open for three more weeks and there are a few versions you need to choose from. If you’re a Cisco Partner you need to take the Partner version. If you don’t know whether you’re a partner or not, you’re probably not, so don’t fret. Because for non-partners we have the challenge in both English and Spanish: Read More »

Protecting Your Business in an “Any to Any” World
Innovation never stops in the mobile world, and that rule applies to security threats as well. Network attacks are becoming more sophisticated and even high-tech businesses with the most advanced security may find themselves in the crosshairs as we shift to more devices and anywhere access.
Just a few weeks ago, multiple leading social networking and large enterprises were hit with an attack when their employees visited a known and trusted website focused on mobile application development. Read More »

The Internet of Everything is all around us. People are connecting on the go in new ways, and they expect fast, secure network connections that follow them anywhere and everywhere —at work, at home, at play, at the mall, at the gym, or even at the ballpark.
Not so long ago, getting on the Internet was a static experience. It was a desktop PC tethered to the company network, or for the elite the “double, double, toil and trouble” of a modem firing up, followed by a long wait for a sluggish home connection.
The new era of mobility takes computing beyond the PC’s limitations, surpassing it by a long shot. It’s becoming less about devices than what you can do as the workspace evolves, offering adaptability and choice based upon who you are, where you are, and what you need to accomplish. Whether it’s a quick phone call, a web conferencing session, instant messaging, or file sharing, removing the limitations of location and devices lets organizations work together better and make decisions faster.
What is driving these changes? When people think of mobility, they usually focus on the devices used to access the net. Slick new smart phone displays, multi-touch tablet screens, and futuristic industrial designs are definitely eye-catching. Consumers are snapping up these new devices, and companies are embracing bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs. But what’s happening behind the scenes and on the screens is just as important—if not more important.
