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.
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.
Networking giant Cisco Systems Inc. showed strong execution in most areas in its fiscal third quarter as it posted record revenue of $14.6 billion, up 14% year-over-year and topping estimates, but there’s a lot more behind the headline numbers.
I recently had the opportunity to visit Cisco Systems Inc.’s newly opened Atlanta office, and the space, similar to what the company did with its New York Penn1 location, has been designed for the needs of hybrid work, a huge topic of conversation at the recent Enterprise Connect 2023 event.
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.
