Cisco Live Delivers Results in a Safe Way for Service Providers

On June 16-17, 2020 for the first time we held the 31st annual Cisco Live as an entirely virtual event. Our focus this year was “Possibilities”, where teams collaborated and showcased the importance of the digital journey throughout the event.
