Cisco Live US which was held in Las Vegas the week of July 10th is one of the premier IT industry events Cisco hosts every year. This year’s event drew over 28,000CLUS LV banner clip 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—and hear their feedback. For a quick overview you can review daily highlights at the Cisco Live video portal.

Public Sector had a strong presence at this year’s event. We were honored to have Chief Chris Wagner of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police speak about some of the great things we have done together and enjoyed great interactions with analysts.  We also presented on a number of Public Safety topics being affected in the Digital Age ranging from safer schools and colleges to safer communities and countries.

In the Public Safety area of the Cisco booth in the World of Solutions (WoS) exhibition hall, we demonstrated several of our cutting edge solutions including ones addressing the Public Safety Architecture Foundation, Wearables and Mobile communications and Sensors, Connected Public Safety, Secure Mobile Collaboration, and Premium Mobile Broadband. We were fortunate to have a number of our important Public Sector partners join us in the WoS as well as speak at the event and were especially pleased to be joined in our booth by BlueLine Grid who demonstrated GridTEAM, their secure collaboration platform.

The last event of this year’s Cisco Live series will be held November 7 – 10, 2016 in Cancun. We look forward to seeing you there and again next year at one of our 2017 Cisco Live events. In the meantime, get more information at www.cisco.com/go/government
