Advanced Multicast Resiliency
Benefits of Application Visibility and Control (AVC)
L2VPN in the Data Center
Enhancing Application Performance
Cisco Performance Routing (PfR) technology helps network administrators reduce bandwidth costs, enable intelligent load distribution, improve application performance, and deploy dynamic failure detection at the WAN access edge. Whereas other routing mechanisms can provide both load sharing and failure mitigation, Cisco IOS PfR makes real-time routing adjustments based on criteria other than static routing metrics. These criteria include response time, packet loss, jitter, path availability, traffic load distribution, and cost minimization. This webinar explains PfR, identifies the latest enhancements, and presents real case studies.

Preparing for BYOD and IPv6 with a Single Security Policy
As bring your own device (BYOD becomes more and more prevalent, it is important to keep in mind that most devices support both IPv4 and IPv6. Even if you do not provide IPv6 connectivity yet, you still need to maintain the same protection as with IPv4. This webinar briefly reviews available first hop security measures for IPv4 and then focuses on the new features that provide the matching functionality for IPv6.

Enhancing Media Services with Media Services Proxy
Media Services Proxy (MSP), which runs on selected Cisco routers and switches, can learn information about connected media devices. Once it identifies the device and flows coming from endpoints, MSP provides a platform for the user to enforce network policies in a logical, intuitive manner, and in alignment with business priorities. MSP provides simplified endpoint integration with the pervasive Cisco network that benefits a wide installed base, without endpoint upgrades or additional development.

Flow Metadata for Enhanced Network Application Awareness
Flow Metadata, an integral part of the Medianet architecture, extends across end points and network devices, and makes the network cognizant of the type, nature and characteristics of traffic streams thereby enabling flexible policy enforcements and enhanced application visibility. This session highlights the Flow Metadata concept, the challenges it can effectively solve and how it can be deployed in the network across various platforms.
