At Cisco Live 2013 you will discover how organisations around the world are partnering with Cisco to build their own Unified Data Centres. Whether you are on the journey to cloud computing, looking to optimise your Data Centre infrastructure or involved in Data Centre design using the latest architectures; Cisco Unified Data Centre delivers transformative technologies across compute, storage access, network and Data Centre services to increase your IT agility and operational efficiency. Interact with peers, Cisco Technical experts, Cisco executives and Cisco partners to explore the latest best practices and technologies for greater IT productivity. Give your organisation a distinct advantage by leveraging the next wave of Data Centre innovation.
Responsible for the direction and control of all data, this track caters to arguably the most important devices in the network. The role of these core devices is constantly evolving with newer generation platforms, architectures and protocols. Network Infrastructure and Systems (NIS) underlie the operation of the entire network and are critical to delivering a high performing, highly available network that supports business objectives.
The NIS track focuses on the designing, deployment and operation of these devices within Enterprise, Branch and Campus networks. Topics covered include high availability, network management, QoS, MPLS/EVC and enterprise IPv6. This track will also provide attendees with an insight into Cisco's latest innovations in Next Generation Wiring Closet solutions as well as Cisco's developments with Software Defined Networking (SDN).
The track is tailored to Architects, Integrators and Engineers with a background in Network Infrastructure.
The Mobility track is designed to deepen an understanding of how to design and develop a secure and scalable unified mobility platform in order to deliver applications that transform business operations for greater efficiency and flexibility. As more and more devices are connected to wireless networks, reliability, deployment flexibility and manageability are key.
The Cisco Live technical sessions will focus on the Cisco Unified Wireless Network and cover a broad spectrum of technology areas that make up a mobility platform. This includes:
As a session participant, you will learn how to design, implement, and manage a unified wireless network with services including guest access, context aware, voice over WLAN, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and more.
This track will also have sessions covering Cisco Unified Access as well as advancements in 802.11, with a particular focus around the next major PHY standard, 802.11ac.
Today's organisations witness a rapid pace in which three major technology platforms have shifted; collaboration, mobility and virtualisation. All three technologies play a major part in productivity gains, efficiencies and innovation but at the same time challenge existing security technologies.
The Security track will address these challenges and present solutions around moving organisations to a BYOD model, securing next generation data centre and virtualisation technologies, and enabling social media and collaboration in a secure way. Further, the track will provide guidance on protecting against advanced cyber threats and hacktivism, deploying IPv6 security and Cloud security strategies.
Sessions in this track will cover:
Today Collaboration encompasses and unifies all forms of communication from voice, video, IM, and presence to content capture and sharing inside and outside the organisation. Cisco collaboration technology can enable and integrate these communications methods into one unified architecture. The collaboration-focused stream will include detailed sessions on understanding, designing and deploying collaboration solutions.
There will be a particular focus on all aspects of designing, managing and troubleshooting unified communications for voice and video from Medianet network integration, communications control, session admission control, dial plan, virtualisation and trunking either delivered On-Premises or as a hosted solution.
Sessions will also be available to provide guidance on desktop and mobile unified communications, conferencing and multi-party collaboration and contact centre customer response solutions both within your organisation but also federated with your customers and partners.
This track is designed for technical professionals who have an interest or focus on unified communications and collaboration technologies. It will give you an in-depth explanation of current unified communications and collaboration solutions and their relevant integrations providing you with design and deployment advice and offers a great opportunity to listen to and interact with our experts.
