TWTV118: Maximize your WAN with Cisco ISR

Episode 118, Project ID 1206

Taped July 10, 2012, Released August 3, 2012

Guests: Vasanth Raghavan, Manu Parbhakar, Adam Groudan 

Don't leave the 'S' out of your ISR...

Are you getting all the value you can out of your router? Chances are high that you either have a high performance machine at the edge of your network that is just idling or you will soon. The value of this show applies equally to those of you who roll your own as well as leverage services from our service provider partners.

We include actionable information in at least four areas - 
1. Security - secure services…managed VPN enhancements, virtual office and traditional security
2. Cloud Connectors - Specifically Cloud Enhanced Voice and Video (HCS)
3. A field trip!  - Smart Guidance for architecture deployment (SBA) - who likes being first?  You don’t have to…chances are high that the SBA guys have already failed first..and then published the ‘architectural manual’
4. Machine to Machine - the high growth potential that network intelligence can bring to your most critical functions like transportation, vending machines, people…you can put a router on anything!


Don't miss the workshop!


CiscoLive San Diego 2012

Robb & Prashanth on Stage, Jimmy Ray on the Wireless FeedCiscoLive was held in beautiful San Diego this year.  Sure wish we could do it here every year...its been Vegas (burnout!) for the last few years and now for 2013 I understand it will be Orlando.  We followed a new pattern in our production here that seems to be working out well. Instead of producing 2 to 3 full themed shows, we are doing individual segments, editing them on site and uploading within what is usually a 3 hour time frame.

Network Intelligence

As a fundamental and critical part of a successful cloud implementation, the network is poised for incredible leaps of intelligence.  The WAN has been re-defined as Weak Area Network contributing to poor performance, inadequate security, lack of visibility and complex management.  An intelligent network endows the WAN with the  efficiency of cloud and and the confidence of a private network.  This TechWiseTV episode is stuffed with incredible innovations that deliver on a cloud journey you can embrace.
