Not really. But he is one of the industry’s most accessible, clear-headed and seasoned interpreters of what’s happening in the video technology landscape, and his plan is to talk through what’s top of mind for him at this year’s IBC, including:
The Global Dose of Reality that is IP: The swift rise in “unmanaged devices” – tablets, smart phones, PCs, connected TVs, all of which can display video over an IP connection – is one bit of evidence, as is the inherent mobility of many of those devices. Which, in turn, calls for network optimization. Dr. Ken envisions a multi-step Read More »
Workers in the field require dynamic information, including location telemetry and real-time video to enhance situational awareness. Workers must be able to collaborate and share information with each other and headquarters while on the move. This growing demand for increased collaboration drives the need to network everything that walks, flies, drives, or sails.
The Cisco Mobile Ready Net solution is the platform for extending information sharing and collaboration to highly mobile users, even those operating in the most severe and remote locations. The solution’s architecture targets the critical challenges of mobile networking environments, including size, weight, power, router-radio integration, and ad hoc networking.
Watch below as Murray Duff, Mobility Programs Manager, Cisco Global Government Solutions Group discusses Cisco Mobile Ready Net Solutions and Cisco Embedded Services Routers, allowing anything that moves to become a full-featured network node.

We’ve just formally kicked off our new fiscal year and, last week, we completed our annual global sales meeting where John Chambers, Rob Lloyd, and the Cisco leadership team charged up our sales organization around the Next Cisco.
So what does the Next Cisco mean to our partners?
One message that I want you to hear loud and clear is that partners are, and will continue to be, an integral part of our strategy.
Here in the United States, many kids are beginning a new school year, so I thought I a quick math lesson would help me illustrate the value partners bring and what’s happening here at Cisco.
Watch this short video for my math lesson to help you better understand what’s changing, what’s not, and how Cisco, along with our partners, adds up to success.

Cisco’s business is going through a transformation and the company is relying on Rich Media tools such as Collaboration and Video to cut costs, increase employee productivity and improve operational efficiencies.
As of July 2011, there are a total of about 1250 high end Cisco Telepresence systems and another 6000+ Tandberg based Telepresence and video endpoints. The total number could grow to 25,000 in the next 18-24 months. Also, the use of video with WebEx is growing every day. The company is also leveraging video technologies for live meetings such as the Global Sales meeting that brings together 20,000+ employees virtually for two days. Use of Video on Demand technologies is increasing through video blogs, show and share and other employee and customer engagement applications. Digital Media Systems have become a key part of the employee communication strategy and the Safety and Security team is also upgrading several thousands of new security cameras.
All of these bring tremendous challenges to IT, especially to the Infrastructure teams. Architecting, Designing and Operating the network for this large scale, global video deployment has made the IT Infrastructure teams think through their plans.
Cisco IT is rolling out the Medianet architecture to address many of these challenges.
