The agenda of the Cisco Networkers event in Brisbane is getting close to one of the most anticipated parts tonight – the customer appreciation event…  There’s been a lot of speculation about who the band will be – and we look forward to your guesses on who that.  In the meantime, we visited the World of Solutions area today with Andrew Erratt, director of Systems Engineering, Cisco ANZ, to get a view of what attendees can expect to see in terms innovative solutions from Cisco and 40 of its partners. In the video you can see Andrew in front of one of the four Cisco stands – Virtualisation, Borderless Networks, Collaboration and the general Cisco stand showcasing Cisco EnergyWise and physical security solutions.

Cisco ANZ head, Les Williamson issued a challenge to Networkers attendees in his opening presentation to see if he can reach critical mass of 100 followers on Twitter by the end of the conference – you can follow Les on Twitter (leswilli) to help him make his number –  and also track the main CiscoNetworkers Twitter feed #cnw09.  Guido Jouret’s opening keynote is also now available for on demand viewing here in the auditorium on  Enjoy the party tonight everyone!
