Expanding global digital footprint – shaping the connected future
The rapid expansion of the global digital footprint — the number of Internet users and connections (end user devices and IoT) — requires enhancements in network performance across both fixed and mobile (cellular + Wi-Fi) networks. In addition, consumer and business applications will also need to be strengthened with new and evolving security measures. Here are some key observations and findings from the Cisco Annual Internet Report,

Predicting the impact of 5G. Mobile innovation will create new levels of bandwidth consumption
The 2017 Cisco Mobile Visual Networking Index (VNI) forecasts that there will be about 25 million 5G capable devices and connections by 2021, which will generate 8.9 exabytes (EB) of annual mobile data traffic.
Containers Hold an Agile Approach to Data Center Virtualization
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, container is a noun, and is defined as a receptacle for holding goods. Alternatively, it also means, a portable compartment in which freight is placed (as on a train or ship) for convenience of movement. In this blog, I’ll be talking about containers in the networking sense and the important […]
Global Data Center Growth: Supporting the Next Data Deluge
Data centers house servers, physical or virtual, that provide storage, communications, and networking to the growing number of networked devices, users, and business processes in general. The growing importance of data analytics—the result of big data coming from ubiquitously networked end-user devices and IoT alike—has added to the value and growth of data centers. We […]
Comparing Generational Digital Footprint
It’s often said that “apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” – and my “apple” has fallen very close to me. This summer, my 18-year-old daughter earned the opportunity to work as an intern at Cisco. As a 20-year Cisco veteran, my daughter’s internship inspired me to reflect on my career experiences in the Internet […]
