Announcing the Cisco Industry Solutions Partner Network

September 14, 2007 - 0 Comments

For those of you who did not see the announcement, Cisco has announced a new tool for our channel partners and application service providers to interact, the Industry Solutions Partner Network (ISPN). This is a 3D immersive environment for our channel partners to discover the wide array of solutions available from our ASP partners.To quickly dispel any confusion, this is not a user-created-content, avatar-customized, free-roaming experience as experienced on the Cisco Virtual Campus in Second Life, but a 24/7 3D tradeshow with easy navigation targeted specifically at our Channel partners. As you know (if you are reading this blog), there are a number of different species of virtual worlds, ranging from pre-scripted web-based flash worlds, walled and open ‘free-roaming’ worlds, and hybrids. Each species has it’s own best uses, as there is no ‘one-sized-fits-all’ solution.We’ll be releasing more details in the near future, however here is a sample screenshot of the environment because a picture is worth a thousand blog-words. 😉cisco ispn.jpg
