Service Provider - Multiservice Edge
Service Providers are continuously under profitability pressure through price competition, escalating user expectations and the challenge of “over-the-top” players. The challenge is to simultaneously decrease costs, increase scale and improve average revenue per user (ARPU). Cisco has a strategy to support these competing objectives through intelligent, scalable Multiservice Edge platforms built ground-up for video and cloud services with industry-leading density and resiliency.

Discuss with Cisco experts the readiness of the ASR 9000 platform to provide innovative ARPU-increasing services to your customers. See for yourself the quality of its service delivery and drive a live demonstration of its resilience. Use a web-controlled robot to remove a route processor while the ASR runs high-definition video streaming and watch what happens.

Service Provider – IPv6
IANA - the world’s authority for the allocation of Internet Numbers – has run out of traditional IP addresses. Soon Service Providers around the world will also begin to run out as they allocate their dwindling stock of addresses at an ever increasing rate to the explosion of connected devices. It’s time to move to a new plan.

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) has a vastly increased addressable range and many other advantages over its predecessor. But how can SPs take advantage of this new protocol, enable their networks and migrate their customers? Cisco has a roadmap for Preserving existing address space, Preparing for the transition and Prospering from the new capabilities of v6.

Hear about Cisco’s readiness for v6, learn about Cisco’s Carrier Grade transitional capabilities, see demonstrations of v6 access and interworking that can be deployed by SPs today.

Urban Security
In large and complex urban environments, it is critical for decision makers to reduce the time from detection of an incident to response by first responders. This demonstration will show two Urban Security use cases.

Unattended Object/Loitering:
There are many locations and situations where detecting an unattended object is considered safe practice. In the more obvious situations, detecting a package or piece of luggage left unattended in a train station or airport can be cause for concern. A less obvious situation is the presence of a vehicle in a forbidden location or an area where it has been left unattended for a period of time. There are situations where either of these may not be cause for concern, so including the ability to evaluate the situation is imperative.

Unauthorised Building Access/Forced Entry:
Controlling physical access to a location is as much about keeping unauthorised persons out of an area as it is about allowing authorised persons into the same area. It becomes more challenging when this profile can change based on situational conditions or time of day.

Video Surveillance
The Cisco CIVS-IPC-4000 series of High Definition IP Cameras includes the CIVS-IPC-4300 and the CIVS-IPC-4500. These feature-rich digital cameras designed for a wide variety of video surveillance applications. They include an open, standards-based design that provides an ideal platform for integration and operation as an devices or as part of a Cisco Video Surveillance network.

The 253x Series IP domes are vandal-resistant. They include a heater and fan and are designed to be mounted outdoors. Model CIVS-IPC-2530V includes a clear dome cover and model CIVS-IPC-2531V includes a smoked dome cover.

Cisco® Video Analytics software offers users innovative ways to perform video analysis. The software provides an intuitive interface to enable organizations to make the best use of their surveillance video. Cisco Video Analytics offers a choice between two analytics packages: Security and Counting. Events that are generated by the Cisco Video Analytics software will be sent to the Cisco Video Surveillance Media Server and may be viewed on that platform.

Physical Access Control
Cisco Physical Access Control is a comprehensive solution with hardware and software components that provide electronic access control using the IP network. Demonstration to showcase the ability of Cisco's Physical Access Control to not only do electronic access control but, also collaborate with other Cisco physical security products like video surveillance manager (VSM) and mass notification systems like IPICS.

Integration with EnergyWise to show how you can turn on an office when a person badges-in and turn off the office when a person badges-out.
We would be showing the Integration with video surveillance on how a live video feed and recorded video feed pop-up when there is an alarm condition.

Digital Media Suite
Business Video

Create a better organisational culture and increase customer intimacy with effective communication and collaboration.

The Cisco Digital Media Suite (DMS) is a comprehensive offering of webcasting and video sharing, business IPTV and digital signage applications that can help transform how you learn, grow, communicate, and collaborate.
