It’s late June and school is almost out. High school seniors are getting ready for college, younger kids are planning end-of-year parties, and families are getting ready to head to Disney and other fun spots. However, fun isn’t just limited to kids – network managers are getting ready for their own fun in Florida sun, as Cisco Live this year heads to the heart of Disney, Orlando, Florida.
So, what should we expect to hear about at Cisco Live? I believe at this year’s conference, network administrators will get a big dose of simplification and automation as Cisco strives to make it easier for customers to turn on intelligent networks services and improve performance on converged networks.
This theme was actually a big part of Cisco Live London, and were a couple of the core principals behind the release of Cisco’s 3850 Unified Access Switch. The coming together of wired and wireless technologies means that customers no longer have to deploy a wired network with a wireless overlay and manage network services in parallel.
