Cisco Live Delivers Results in a Safe Way for Service Providers
On June 16-17, 2020 for the first time we held the 31st annual Cisco Live as an entirely virtual event. Our focus this year was “Possibilities”, where teams collaborated and showcased the importance of the digital journey throughout the event. Cisco Live 2020 had over 120,000 registered attendees spanning globally across our three sales and marketing regions: Asia-Pacific/Japan (APJ), Europe/Middle East/Africa/Russia (EMEAR), and Americas (AMER), exceeding our expectations and that of our partners and customers. It was an interactive experience with each presenter broadcasting from their home office, using Cisco WebEx technology.
The Advantages of Exciting New Wireless Technologies
Enterprise operators are looking for new ways to leverage Industry 4.0 – the transformation of traditional industrial and manufacturing practices using smart technology – as we move toward a world of large-scale Machine to Machine (M2M) communications and Internet of Things (IoT) deployments driven by the two dominant wireless technologies, 5G and Wi-Fi 6. However, many operators aren’t sure which technology suits their needs.
Believe the HYPE: The Standout Technologies Shaping the Future of Media, Sports & Entertainment
Recently, I had the pleasure of participating in a tech webinar panel with HYPE Sports, The New Game Changers of Sports Media & Broadcasting. I was asked to share my perspective on the current landscape and innovation trends I’m seeing, and how I believe it will impact what’s coming next for the Media, Sports, and Entertainment industry. I wanted to expand a bit on some of the topics I covered and highlight big themes to consider for the future.
What You Need to Know About 800G Signaling For Pluggable Optics
The re-branded Ethernet Technology Consortium has released a specification for 800G signaling. This goes hand in hand with the new QSFP-DD800 form factor MSA.
How Next-Gen Wi-Fi6 Will Pay for Itself
Wi-Fi is going through another major evolution, now in its 6th iteration since it was introduced and adopted as a worldwide wireless technology standard. The technological advancements introduced in Wi-Fi6 can drive new age use cases that demand more bandwidth for faster speeds, higher network capacity for more simultaneous users, and lower latency for near real-time applications.
How to Support Future Traffic Growth: New 800G Optics MSA

Automating Network Slicing in the Transport Layer
Network slicing is essential for 5G service providers to deliver on stringent new SLAs while still producing quality service to their existing customer base, and we are excited to be at the forefront of delivering the next generation of technology solutions empowering 5G.
Securing the Mobile Transport Network
With the new 5G and IoT services, the network is becoming more interconnected than ever, and as a result, security is becoming even more critical. 5G and IoT impose a larger security risk on service provider mobile backhaul networks as a growing number of unsecured devices at the edge of the network could be compromised.
