Cisco at SpiceWorld 2019


This September, Cisco will be at SpiceWorld—billed one of the year’s “must attend” educational IT events—to highlight how to power your growing business simply, securely, reliably, and affordably. 



Your beat is your business.


As a Diamond sponsor of SpiceWorld, we’re showing up in booth 39 with on-demand demos, giveaways, and the chance to speak with Subject Matter Experts face to face. And for a little extra fun, join the in-booth #CiscoDisco, where you can have your dance moves recorded and sent to you as an animated GIF.

We’re talking all-things IT at SpiceWorld – from how a multilayered approach to security can help protect your growing business to affordable solutions spanning collaboration, on-premises, and cloud-based networking.

Speaking Sessions

Breakout Session: Cyber Security – Baking it in Place Like a Layer Cake!

When: Tuesday, September 24 | 2:15–3:15 pm

Where: Room 16

Speaker: Tim Roberts, EPS of Vermont, Inc., IT Network Coordinator 

Abstract: The multilayered approach always works best when it comes to security, so treat your infrastructure like you would treat baking a cake. In this session, we’ll discuss how to whip up the most effective security in multiple layers. With a healthy dash of technology and an equal amount of strategy, you can stack your defenses high against modern cybercriminals. And let’s not forget the frosting on top: Personalization and customization to your specific environment. Attend to learn the recipe!



Tech Talk: Cloud-Based Threat Protection Using Cisco Catalyst 9000 Series Switches and Cisco Umbrella

When: Wednesday, September 25 | 11:15–11:35 am

Where: TBD

Speaker: Jay Sharma, Technical Marketing Engineer, Cisco

Description: The data and applications used by small and medium-sized businesses have become more decentralized as more users connect directly to internet-based and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications. Because of this, security capabilities and controls must also shift to the cloud. In this session we will discuss how you can now run the Cisco Umbrella agent on Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches for simple service deployment, global visibility, and policy enforcement. This allows for fast filtering decisions regardless of the port or protocol, extending security beyond web access to Internet access. 

Tech Talk: A Simple, Secure Digital Workplace

When: Wednesday, September 25 | 12:00–12:20 pm

Where: TBD

Speaker: Jeffry Handal, Lead Consulting Systems Engineer, Cisco Meraki

Description: Technology can connect us, empower us, and drive us. At Cisco Meraki, we believe that by simplifying powerful technology, we can free passionate people to focus on their mission and reach groups previously left in the darkness. Meraki has a comprehensive set of solutions includes wireless, switching, security appliance, EMM, and smart cameras, all managed through Meraki’s web-based dashboard interface. This allows customers to seize new business opportunities and reduce operational costs. In this session, we will share live demos of our deployment so you can get experience with our simple dashboard.



Tech Talk: Cisco Enterprise Wireless for Small to Medium Businesses

When: Wednesday, September 25 | 12:30–12:50 pm

Where: TBD

Speaker: Rajat Tayal, Product Manager, Cisco and Maggie Wu, Product Manager, Cisco

Description: Today, wireless is ‘mission critical’ for business operations. Regardless of the size of the business, wireless networks need to be secure, resilient, and intelligent. Designed for small to medium-sized businesses, Cisco has solutions for both controller-less and controller-based access network deployments. In this session, we will talk about Cisco Mobility Express, which is an enterprise-class controller-less solution for the small and midsize networks. Additionally, we will talk about the latest addition to the Catalyst 9800 wireless controller series, the C9800-L. C9800-L is the next-gen Catalyst wireless controller and is ideal for SMBs looking for full Enterprise capabilities at scale.
