At COMEX, Cisco will showcase their end-to-end networking and mobility capabilities and the latest Connected Rail products including a wide range of Cisco Video Surveillance Cameras, IE3000 industrial Ethernet Switch and Ruggedized Wireless Access Points.
  • In response to today’s advanced malicious and cyber attacks that are too complex and too sophisticated to be addressed by traditional technologies, Cisco’s before/during/after approach to security avoids the problems associated with fragmented security solutions, such as lack of visibility and inconsistent enforcement. At COMEX, Cisco will be showcasing multiple industry leading platforms that form the cornerstones of Cisco’s integrated approach to security: The Cisco ASA 5500-X Series Next Generation Firewall, SourceFire Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System, Advanced Malware Protection Technology and Cisco Cyber Threat Defense (CTD) Solution.
  • Many Cloud providers and Data Center environments are embracing a new Flexible, Automated, Secure and Transformative (FAST) approach to their cloud infrastructures and services to quickly deliver and monetize cloud services, continually align with customers’ needs, automate core processes to reduce costs, and create new revenue opportunities. Moreover, new demands for uptime and serviceability coupled with the new technology make the design of the data center more challenging. At COMEX, Cisco will be showcasing the pioneering Unified Computing Systems (UCS), a key component of Cisco Unified Data Center that changes the economics of the data center by unifying compute, storage, networking, virtualization, and management into a single platform resulting in operational simplicity and business agility. Cisco offers UCS Common Platform Architecture (CPA) for Big Data, a comprehensive infrastructure and management solution to support Big Data initiatives.
  • With the Internet of Everything (IoE) creating many new capabilities and richer experiences in Healthcare, Oil & Gas, and Transportation, network infrastructures must evolve. By building on the Cisco Borderless Networks architecture, the Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture goes beyond software-defined networking with a larger-scale approach to network programmability.

  • Working together, people can achieve extraordinary things. Cisco's vision is to improve collaboration with technology that empowers people to engage and innovate -- anywhere, on any device. With Video becoming pervasive, at COMEX, Cisco will be demonstrating the true Video collaboration experience across multiple endpoints ranging from Mobile devices, to high-end Telepresence/Video Conferencing stations, to desktop phones. The New Cisco DX-650 Desktop Collaboration Endpoint will be featured along with the New Intelligent Proximity Technology for Telepresence endpoints. In addition, Cisco will show how the Business Edition 6000 Communication Server amazingly provides collaboration in one single box providing integration of voice, video, mobility, messaging, conferencing, instant messaging and presence, and contact center features on one single platform.
