Cisco ūmi is embarking on a road trip today which will take us through California, North Carolina, New York and Washington, DC. During the Cisco ūmi “Get Together” Mobile Tour, we’ll be attending some great events, and we’re excited to get out and share the ūmi experience with even more of you!
Just imagine if you could wave to your mom from the Surf City Marathon finish line—even if she’s all the way across the country! And how about video chatting in such high definition that your friends can almost smell the glass of wine in your hand at the New York Wine Expo? Or celebrate a great win (or talk a little smack) with NHL fans around the country at the NHL Fan Fair event starting tomorrow, January 28, 2011 to Sunday, January 30, 2011.
Whether you’re sipping wine, catching a wave, running your heart out or cheering on your favorite NHL players, stop by the tour bus and check out the new way to be together. Cisco is the Official Technology Partner of both the NHL & NBA so look for ūmi at both their properties!
We’ll show you all the cool things you can do with ūmi and you can give it a whirl!
Make sure to stop by ths weekend to see which NHL player Cisco ūmi is bringing to you at the Cisco ūmi at the NHL Fan Cave!
Following on the success of the first Borderless Challenge, today Cisco launches a new contest. Running from January 25th thru February 17th, this new challenge will demonstrate how to effectively deploy cloud services and deliver high-quality video from anywhere in the network.
Register to participate and you could win a trip to Hawaii or a Flip video camera.
Here’s Marie Hattar, Vice President of Borderless Networks Marketing, to talk about this exciting new contest.
Introducing Cisco Industrial Intelligence. Neither James Bond gone corporate nor Cisco gone espionage, Industrial Intelligence is the enabling of business enterprises and municipalities to more intelligently and responsively manage industrial operations globally, and it’s one of Cisco’s latest adjacencies as part of the Borderless Networks solutions portfolio. Having IP-data and control flows converged with voice, video and virtualization creates a more intelligent platform for innovations that connect devices to measure, monitor, and manage resources for greater efficiencies, to connect people in less time and space, and to connect ideas that generate solutions to today’s industrial, operational and environmental challenges.
Chet Namboodri talks about how the Cisco Industrial Intelligence solution can help to improve operational efficiency, safety, agility, and use of assets.
Enterprises have reported upward increases in bandwidth requirements due to video applications which stem from several sources:
Video applications move from standard to high definition resolutions.
New applications are coming online.
Number of video endpoints is increasing.
Utilization of video is increasing due to improved quality and easier user experience.
More video applications are moving to the converged IP network.
All of these are driving increases in bandwidth requirements. As video is deployed on your network, evaluate your bandwidth, but do not stop there. Other important topics are management tools and services in the network for ease of configuration and quality of service guarantees for applications. Read More »
