Cisco Experts to Give Breakout Session on Mobility and Virtualization Security at Government EventThis Week

April 2, 2012 - 0 Comments

Two of Cisco’s finest will be presenting a breakout session today, April 2 at the 2012 Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference in Denver, Colorado.

Mike Harttree, Technical Solutions Architect, and Gary Hall, Chief Technology Architect, will present “Survey of Wireless & Mobility Architectures for Communication and Collaboration,” from 3:20 p.m. to 4:05 p.m.

Mobile and wireless technologies are transforming the way the world works. Personal and corporate mobile applications enable individuals to collaborate in new ways to improve their productivity. One of the great myths in the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense is that security concerns prevent wireless technologies and mobile devices from being used in support of a mission. The reality is that the wireless infrastructure is already in place and is expanding rapidly throughout the DoD community. How this infrastructure is integrated into enterprise and mission architectures is the key to successfully deploying more wireless capabilities and protecting information such as classified data, when it is transmitted over a wireless medium.

In the session, Harttree and Hall will review existing and emerging wireless and mobile architectures designed to support Intelligence and DoD enterprise and expeditionary operations. They will discuss methods for securing the mobile collaboration space, how to develop secure apps and widget platforms, and efforts currently underway throughout the U.S. Federal government.

This sessio will also examine how mobility fits with existing architectures for Voice over IP (VoIP), telepresence, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and data access, as well as how those architectures are being extended for mobile access.

The survey of architectures will span the lifecycle of voice, video & data from the data center, through the network, and on to user-facing devices. A particular emphasis will be placed on the user experience and the resulting impact on intelligence tradecrafts and military operations.

If you are attending the conference, their session is a “must-see”!
