It’s early June, so for networking professionals, it’s time for Cisco Live, Cisco Systems Inc.’s annual user event, which typically involves the announcement of a cornucopia of product news. The 2023 edition of Cisco Live was no different, although most product news was related to building broader solutions that leverage multiple products.
At Cisco’s global user event, Cisco Live, held recently in Las Vegas, Cisco didn’t launch several new routers, switches, and security devices as is usually the case. Instead, the announcements were centered around platforms and cross-product integration to simplify operations while delivering more value.
Cisco Systems Inc. will hold its annual Cisco Live user event next week in Las Vegas as the networking giant is coming off an impressive quarter in which Chief Executive Chuck Robbins (pictured) set a more than positive outlook for the company.
Cisco Systems Inc.’s Cisco Live EMEA conference last week in Amsterdam was filled with new products, many of which were highlighted in my earlier SiliconANGLE post. Although product announcements are interesting, what’s equally valuable are the underlying themes that are pervasive across the event. One of these was that the network is now critical to digital transformation.
