Overview

Overview

Join Cisco at Oracle OpenWorld 2014, September 28 - October 2, at the Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco.

Oracle users can now take advantage of a powerful platform for running and managing their Oracle products. Cisco data center products, including the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) server platform, Unified Management, and Unified Networking, provide a superior infrastructure for Oracle databases and workloads. These solutions are high performance and extremely reliable. They are also simple to manage, deploy, and reconfigure as needed to meet changing workloads. With the agility provided by Cisco data center solutions, Oracle users can be more responsive to business and user needs while delivering financial efficiency to customers and partners. At Oracle OpenWorld, you will see how we deliver excellence with Oracle solutions.

Cisco is committed to helping solve your most important business challenges. We deliver intelligent networks and technology architectures built on integrated products, services, and software platforms to help you meet your IT and business objectives.

We look forward to seeing you at Oracle OpenWorld 2014 in San Francisco.

Speaking Sessions

DOCSIS 3.1 and Wireless Pre-Conference Symposium

Speaker: John Chapman, CTO Cable Access Business Unit, Cisco
Date: Monday, September 22
Time: 2:30 – 3:15 p.m.

Description: DOCSIS 3.1 provides the ability to expand the capacity on cable networks well beyond today's limits. The reality of much higher modulation rates is real with the advent of 2K and 4K QAM. Some plants can handle higher orders of modulation while others cannot. This is where DOCSIS profiles come in and allow operators to define and/or configure a set of profiles on a per cable modem basis. Learn how profiles were introduced and understand implementation examples.

Separate registration required

Keynote

Speaker: Rob Lloyd, President, Development and Sales, Cisco
Date: Tuesday, September 23
Time: 8:00 – 9:30 a.m.

Description: Lloyd is responsible for Cisco's development and sales efforts, as the company creates tighter connections between customer requirements and innovation, along with ensuring greater speed-to-market. Lloyd's organization manages the alignment and acceleration of Cisco's technology innovation to enable a faster response to market transitions, increased customer relevance, and growth. With 19 years of global leadership experience with Cisco, Lloyd has managed the majority of the company's worldwide businesses. He is also a member of the Cisco Executive Committee, which sets strategic direction for each of Cisco's market segments.

IP-Delivered Video: Considerations for MPEG-2

Speaker: Jayakumar Krishnamoorthy, Software Engineer, Cisco
Date: Tuesday, September 23
Time: 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Description: MPEG-2 video delivery still has challenges over IP connections: TCP's congestion control and reliability may overly burden real-time video, whereas UDP's non-reliable connections can affect user experience. In this session, hear about new ways to address these challenges from both an operator and vendor perspective, and discover the new Stream Control Transmission Protocol that provides UDP-like, message-oriented delivery with TCP-like reliability for delivery of MPEG video over IP.

Next-Generation Architecture for Business Services

Speaker: Gerry White, Distinguished Engineer, Cisco
Date: Tuesday, September 23
Time: 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Description: Services deployment velocity and robustness will see real benefits from virtualization. Learn how this is particularly true for business services using both SDN and NFV that is tailored to the business class of services. Specifically, learn how applications can execute in a virtual environment using service chaining to provide sophisticated service sets that can be tailored to specific business users. And, discover the mechanisms needed for business service solutions to run over a mix of physical and virtual infrastructure components.

Going Remote: Exploring New Access Architectures

Speaker: Fernando Villarruel, HFC Architect, Office of the CTO, Cisco
Date: Wednesday, September 24
Time: 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.

Description: There are various reasons to explore new remote HFC access architectures, especially for Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs). The ability to separate the control plane from the delivery plane in particular could yield substantial improvements in network economics and speed of deployment. This session will explore several of these alternatives, including Remote PHY, Distributed CCAP, and Network Virtualization, and their associated technology, architecture, and business issues, as well as tradeoffs.

ABR Shoot Out at the Optimization Corral

Speaker: Ali Begen, Lead Technical Engineer, Cisco
Date: Thursday, September 25
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Description: There are various reasons to explore new remote HFC access architectures, especially for Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs).
