We’ve seen lots here at Cisco Live so far—great demos from partners of cloud computing at work, Chairman and CEO John Chambers’ keynote address highlighting Cisco’s strength in IT, and a telehealth demo showing the power of Cisco HealthPresence. During today’s keynote presentation from CTO Padmasree Warrior and CIO Rebecca Jacoby, live and virtual attendees got the chance to see real-world examples of how Cisco technology is driving innovation now through the 21st century.
Padma kicked off her talk with a few mind-boggling stats—did you know that currently 13 billion devices connect to the network? That equals two devices for every person on earth. That number is expected to grow to 50 billion devices, meaning each of us will own six. (I guess that means it’s ok if I lose my phone, I can always grab my tablet!)
And speaking of tablets, Padma said that by the end of her talk, she estimates that over 6000 tablets will have been sold. That’s a lot of devices that rely on the network—so how is Cisco is responding to the demand?
