CRN: “Cisco’s Chambers: Architecture Is The Future”

February 24, 2011 - 0 Comments

CRN recently sat down with Cisco Chairman CEO John Chambers, SVP Channels Edison Peres, SVP Services Karl Meulema, SVP Small Business Ian Pennell and numerous other executives across Cisco to create a remarkable set of feature stories published in this month’s print edition.

The feature stories examine everything from Cisco’s architectural strategy to the success Cisco has had within the small business market to the hottest emerging opportunities for the channel to John Chambers’ vision for partners.

“The architecture play, as Cisco sees it, is all-encompassing, with the cloud as the next frontier. It extends from network core to network edge – data center to mobile device – and serves as an organizing principle for everything from switches and routers to video, servers, wireless access points and security. Cisco can, and does, do them all. And what Chambers is asking partners to do isn’t to be everything to everyone and attempt to sell everything but, in essence, see the architectural forest for the product trees and map the way they sell Cisco to that strategy.” – CRN, Cisco’s Chambers: Architecture Is The Future
