Ciscolive! 25 Years of Networkers

May 23, 2014 - 1 Comment

CiscoLiveCisco hosted our first Networkers customer event, now Ciscolive!, 25 years ago.  Our first event was small with around 200 attendees focused on multiprotocal routing technologies.  This year more than 25,000 Cisco customers, partners, press, and analysts attended live in San Francisco, with over 200,000 participating online  with topics ranging from Intercloud, Collaboration, Security, and Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) to Connected Cities with Smart Parking, Traffic Management and  Public Safety, Connected Transportation, and Connected Government driving mission success to protect, educate, and serve.

I attended my first Cisco Networkers event 20 years ago in San Francisco and have worked on many exciting initiatives during my career the past 2 decades.  The role of networking technology as a platform for the Internet of Everything continues to evolve and accelerate more quickly being adopted and deployed in countries and communities around the world.

The week kicked off with keynotes and demonstrations highlighting the advances in technology as well as the potential for transformation in business and public sector.

KeynoteHighlights included:

Wow! What a busy week!  If you were not able to attend in person or missed some of the excitement you can view the highlights and recordings online here and blogs here.

In addition to all the great sessions, demonstrations, and discussions with customers, partners, and analysts, I really enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate with everyone at the customer appreciation events.  We are doing this together!

Safe travels home this Memorial Day weekend.
