Attending a Cisco Live! event is like no other on the planet. If you are excited about new technology for the Enterprise, Data Center, Collaboration, or Service Provider Critical Infrastructure, then there is no better place to be in June. You have the opportunity to experience new technologies with key subject matter experts that are transforming how we build infrastructure and communicate with each other. Plus, who doesn’t want to spend a few days in sunny San Diego?!

Cisco is helping service providers around the world address opportunities created by 5G, IoT, cloud, and the continued dominance of video.

Starting over a year ago, we took on a whole new approach towards Cisco Live! We have heard in the past that it was mainly “an enterprise event.” We have always known that there were many service providers who attended, and now they have their own specific set of tracks focused on the areas that are top of mind for every carrier or builder of critical infrastructure.

On June 11th we will be hosting a Service Provider Power Session where we will discuss the many challenges that service providers face in today’s market, the architectural transformations required to address them, and why Cisco is a trusted partner to help grow revenue, reduce costs, and mitigate risks.

In this session we will hear from Michael Glickman, SVP Global Service Provider Segment, who will explain the present opportunity service providers have to grow revenue through managed services.

I will then walk you through the architectural transitions and Cisco’s SP strategy, that are fundamental to this new era of networking. New this year, I will host a panel of innovations, featuring the following topics:

Converged SDN Transport – Sumeet Arora, SVP/GM Service Provider Business – Networking
5G Solutions and Automation – Kishen Mangat, VP/GM Service Provider Business – Mobility
Optics as a Business – Bill Gartner VP/GM Optical Systems and Optics

To wrap up this session, Jerome Katz, VP CX will lead an exciting conversation with a customer who is taking a radically different approach to 5G mobile. Hear how they implemented the world’s first cloud-based 5G solution, and how Cisco’s Customer Experience team guided them through the transition.
