At Cisco Live 2019 in San Diego this week, you can learn about the latest networking technology at the sessions, browse new products and solutions at the World of Solutions, and even party with Foo Fighters and Weezer at the Cisco Live Celebration!

Speaking of the World of Solutions, you’ll find Cisco Optics all around the floor. The main demo will be in the Service Provider Zone. We’ll showcase some of our latest products, as well as a unique live demo created by the folks who joined us via the Luxtera acquisition.

Sample optics will be on display in the Data Center Space with Nexus 9k, and the Campus Wall. You’ll also find us in the booths of fiber cable infrastructure providers Panduit, Corning, and Leviton.

And don’t forget to join the sessions. Cisco Optics will be at the SP Power Session on Tuesday at 2pm, where the VP’s and SVP’s below will discuss how Cisco is prepared to guide service providers through network transformation — driven by architectural shifts, 5G, and automation. Register here.
