I am delighted to announce the formation of the Cisco SP Mobility Community. This community will bring together mobility experts to collaborate and discuss technical and business challenges in the mobility space. If you are not already a member, please check it out…here are some hot topics so far:

It is an exciting time to be in the mobile space for FIVE MAJOR reasons.

  1. New innovative applications such as YouTube, Flickr, WebEx
  2. Exciting integrated devices such as the iPhone and Blackberry
  3. Roll out of higher performance networks such as LTE, WiMAX
  4. New business models enabled, and
  5. Unprecedented levels of personalization and ease of use

All these are combining to trigger a mobile internet transformation.We will cover these topics and more in an engaging way. We will bring together experts from both inside and outside the company to cover these topics, engage in meaningful dialog, and answer any questions! You can even ask John Chambers his comments on your top of mind questions!If you share in our excitement, become an integral part of this community and the mobile internet transformation!Remember, we will get from the community what we put into it! So let us get started and start collaborating!


In an effort to keep conversations fresh, Cisco Blogs closes comments after 60 days. Please visit the Cisco Blogs hub page for the latest content.


  1. Thanks Basang for your comments and for being part of the SP Mobility Community.Cisco believes that mobile networks such as 4G networks, including those based on LTE and WiMAX, are moving to all IP architectures and applications. Both WiMAX and LTE have a role to play as the operators monetize their spectrum assets by delivering compelling end-user experience.Most of the radio technologies, LTE, WiMAX, HSPA, CDMA, etc., will coexist for many years to come.

  2. Morning,belated congratulations on setting up SP Mobility Community. Also, congratulations on Starent acquisition. Truly good move on Cisco's part. I am sure it is a drop in the blue ocean as it relates to Lte/Lte-Advanced.Regarding WiMAX vs. LTE. It has been widely propagated by industry SMEs and technology gurus that it is not so much of a competition but rather a collaboration. One can learn from another (Lte from WiMAX in this case; and I am sure vice versa).
