It’s a new year, so one thing is certain: It’s time to go to Las Vegas for the International Consumer Electronics Show. CES is always an energetic annual kickstart here at Cisco, since so much of our mission is to develop and build the technologies that link consumers and businesses to service providers and big networks.

CES is especially big for us this year. For starters, John Chambers, our Chairman and CEO, is keynoting this afternoon (4:30 PM PT, Venetian Palazzo Ballroom), to talk about the Internet of Everything (IoE), as part of the Tech Titans keynote series.

Company-wide we are so focused on the IoE, we’re sponsoring the “Internet of Everything” Tech Zone, in the Central Hall (#13342) — so come see us there if you’re thirsty for details on how sensor-based technologies will jazz up your life at home, and on the go.

Our Service Provider Video business announced news yesterday that we expanded our industry-leading Videoscape TV services delivery platform to include a host of new cloud video capabilities. What stands out, is we are now offering an industry first with our Videoscape “as-a-service” offering, AND open cloud software technologies based on OpenStack. These added capabilities will help service providers and media companies enhance agility, increase revenue and reduce operating expenses.

For our service provider partners, we’re set up at The Wynn Hotel to show how our newest work on Videoscape cloud TV can deliver the good stuff – 4K, RDK, IOE & connected living, multi-screen, advanced advertising, and, of course, what is now the widest range of cloud capabilities in the video business.

And if Connected Cars are your thing, stop by Visteon Booth CP20, in the Central Hall, to see what can happen when network optimization and mobility intersect with your future car. That’s what’s happening for Cisco during the 2014 International CES…Hope to see you there!
