For the first time since we launched Cisco Live 36 years ago, we’ll be hosting the entire event virtually. Like many other companies out there, due to what’s going on in today’s world we needed to make this change. But that doesn’t mean we won’t have  exciting solutions and product announcements you’ve come to expect from Cisco Live. In fact, we’ve done things a bit different to ensure you get all the great content – plus a little more.

The Cisco Live! 2020 digital event will gather the best and the brightest IT heroes to imagine these possibilities. Join us for free – from your home – next Tuesday and Wednesday, June 16-17.
