Cisco was a leading sponsor of the 2011 Interop show in Las Vegas. In addition to our show floor presence, Cisco also sponsored InteropNet, the multi-vendor core infrastructure which provides networking, voice, and video services to the thousands of exhibitors and attendees at the show.

Cisco returned to hosting the InteropNet after a 10-year hiatus. To highlight the increased focus on our core businesses, and commitment to technology and product excellence, Cisco showcased a vast range of networking solutions at Interop. InteropNet provided dual-stack IPv6 capabilities to all capable endpoints, exhibiting Cisco's innovation and leadership.
