Missed it? A Recap on Tuesday’s Events from Cisco Live 2011

It’s been a whirlwind of a day at Cisco Live! In case you missed anything, here’s a quick recap on the day’s events.

To kick off the morning, we announced a refresh of the world’s most widely deployed switch, the Catalyst 6500. Fun fact: the new Sup2T is powerful enough to handle 250 Harry Potter DVDs per second!

Then our Chairman and CEO, John Chambers, ushered in by a flash mob, delivered his keynote address to a packed house and a virtual audience of 40,000 from over 150 countries!

Next, I got a behind the scenes look at some of the impressive technology that goes behind supporting over 15,000 Cisco Live attendees. It took about 4 days to build the Network Operations Center and it tracks realtime traffic on the network in the convention center.

And finally, I got my hands on the new Cisco Cius. It may not come with Angry Birds out of the box, but I’m told if you’re on your IT Manager’s good side, they just might enable it for you… oh, and it has HD video, Cisco TelePresence, and VXI technology.
