Cisco Live US which was held in Las Vegas the last week in June, is one of the premier IT industry events Cisco hosts every year.  This year’s event drew over 28,000 customers, partners, press and analysts. Our top executives presented keynote and innovation talks which tackled topics like cloud, collaboration, data center, enterprise networks, Internet of Things (IoT), and security  across all business and public sector segments including government, education, healthcare, public safety, and transportation.  We showed customers and other Cisco enthusiasts firsthand how our technology and solutions work together to solve their challenges.

One of the hottest topics at this year’s event was our new vison of the future of networking – The Network. Intuitive  The Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) delivers intent-based networking solutions and services that turn network traffic data into actionable insights. It was specifically developed to help our customers make business decisions faster, mitigate more security threats, and manage the unprecedented scale of connected devices and services more easily.

Once again the Public Sector team had a strong presence at this year’s event.  We presented on a number of Public Safety topics ranging from the connected architecture to safer communities and countries.

In the Public Safety area of the Digital Industries booth in the World of Solutions (WoS) exhibition hall, we demonstrated several of our cutting edge solutions including ones addressing Connected Public Safety Officers via Mobile Communications, Live Stream Video for Public Safety and Industrial Users, Smarter Alerts for Public Safety and Industrial Users, and Cisco Instant Connect and Spark for Public Safety and Industrial Users.

We were also fortunate to have a couple of our important Public Sector partners join us in the WoS as well as speak at the event.  We featured Klas telecom’s Emergency Communications system for Public Safety.  Additionally BlueLine Grid joined us in our booth and demonstrated the integration of GridTEAM, their secure collaboration platform, with Cisco Instant Connect to enable communications between cell and radio as well as use their solution leveraging Spark to enhance mobile collaboration.

The last event of this year’s Cisco Live series will be held November 6 – 9, 2017 in Cancun.  We look forward to seeing you there and again next year at one of our 2018 Cisco Live events.  In the meantime, get more information at www.cisco.com/go/government
