Cisco Borderless Networks at Interop New York 2009 – By the way, what is Borderless Networks?

November 19, 2009 - 3 Comments

Interop New York 2009 kicked off with a keynote by Marie Hattar, Cisco VP of Network Systems and Security, on “Business Transformation in a World Without Borders”   This  keynote was followed up with a lot of buzz on the show floor about what this world without borders means to IT and how Cisco’s Borderless Networks makes it a reality.   So what is Borderless Networks and what does it really mean to IT professionals

If you ask me (aka Cisco), I will tell you that it is Cisco’s next-generation architecture, that delivers the new workspace experience, connecting anyone, anywhere, using any device, to any resource — securely, reliably, seamlessly.  What it means to me is that I can be more productive and work anytime from anywhere.  As eloquent as that may sound, I am betting that you would like to hear what IT professionals have to say – right?  Then check out this video with candid responses when we asked from the show floor “What is Borderless Networks and what does that mean to you?”  Do you agree with these IT professionals or do you have a different view?  If you are at Interop, please stop by the Cisco booth and tell us what you think. If you are not at Interop or if you prefer the virtual world, please respond to this blog.

  1. I’m a consumer, and I think I do get the Borderless Networks concept intuitively. I think it’s a good term with lots of powerful subtext. I can’t wait until it happens!

  2. Jennifer, our explanation of the Borderless Network”” is great: “”delivering the new workspace experience, connecting anyone, anywhere, using any device, to any resource—securely, reliably, seamlessly.””I’m afraid that the term “”Borderless Networks,”” in and of itself, is not completely obvious to our end customers…”

  3. Borderless networks would be a revolution!
