This Wednesday, we’re kicking off a great webinar series that will walk you through the Cisco Unified Access solution. With the five-part series, we’re breaking down the one policy, one management, one network story into technical, informative chunks. Part 1 is in just two days, so if you haven’t registered, CLICK TO REGISTER
Have you registered for Part 1 of “Activate the IT Transformation with Unified Access” Webinar Series?
With the ever growing demands placed on IT organizations to “do more with less” it is becoming apparent that the way we deploy the network infrastructure, how we administer policies and how we manage the whole thing needs to evolve.
Why is IT spending so much time maintaining separate wired, wireless and VPN networks? We need to focus on the business that is banging on the door telling you to support more mobile and wired devices, more bandwidth hungry applications and extend that support well beyond the walls of corporate facilities.
How can we simplify how IT operates and still deliver a high-performance, high-quality connected experience? Cisco Unified Access can help! We announced the webinar series earlier this week, and part 1 is just around the corner.
- The industry perspective regarding challenges surrounding, BYOD, Mobility and the Internet of Everything
- The latest Cisco technology that can help you simplify and optimize you network
- How a unified access network can improve performance and operations
- Deploying consistent and contextual policies will improve access control and enforcement
- How reducing operational complexity can accelerate device deployment and end user problem resolution.
The ever-increasing number of devices and applications coming into the workplace poses complex challenges for the enterprise. As a result, IT must adapt the ways in which they enable, manage, and secure end-user access.
- How will the network handle increased demand for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and mobility?
- How can IT maintain raised expectations for wired devices, while improving the end-user experience?
To solidify IT as a key contributor in driving better business processes, IT teams must shift from maintaining the network to delivering innovative, connected experiences. The key to success is to simplify the network, and Cisco Unified Access does just that.
Mark your calendars for our five-part webinar series to learn how to create an effective, unified access strategy. Find out how to transform IT to better address the demands of BYOD and next-generation technology.

We had a great time last week at the Hotel Technology Next Generation’s (HTNG) North American Conference in Atlanta. Many of the industry’s top leaders were in attendance, and it was exciting to see wireless and mobility as a recurring theme throughout the show. There were various Wireless-focused presentations, including one from Wi-Fi Alliance focused on Miracast and Passpoint. Our team also noticed that personal area network (PAN) capabilities are becoming of more interest to hoteliers as guests need a way to connect their devices together to share content.
Our very own Bob Friday, CTO, Wireless Networking Group, and John Bollen, MGM resorts VP of IT Strategy led the Wi-Fi conversations and delivered the conference’s keynote where they focused on key trends in the industry and our innovative implementation at MGM.
In light of the recent announcement of MSE Release 7.4 and Advanced Location Analytics Availability, we thought it would be timely to pick up where we left off on our MSE blogs series. In the first two, my colleague Anshul Tyagi covered how the MSE optimizes the CleanAir experience and discussed other MSE enhancements. Now that we have expanded the MSE to cover advanced location analytics, let’s use this blog to dive deeper into how to monetize your Wi-Fi infrastructure using our new functionality.
So you have a Cisco Wi-Fi network: what can you do to get more insight into the people using it? Do you know which part of your venue is more crowded? Ever wondered where people spend the most of the time in your venue? Where have people been before they arrived at your venue?
Whether it is in retail, leisure, travel or manufacturing, anytime there are people interacting with a Wi-Fi environment, there is also potential to improve the user experience–that is, if you can first visualize that interaction.
With the acquisition of ThinkSmart technologies, a leading data analytics company proficient in location data mining, Cisco opens up a new customer base – that of customer oriented marketing. Cisco ThinkSmart Location Analytics solution leverages your existing WLAN infrastructure and can help you gain insight on customer behavior, giving you an opportunity for better sales and operations.
