Fundamentals of Session Management

 

The flexibility enabled by an IP based communication system is exemplified in how Cisco handles Session Management. In fact, the combination of 'Session Management Edition and CUBE (Cisco Unified Border Element) remain the most cost effective way to transition from a traditional PBX environment without sacrificing previous investments.  

The benefits can be grouped in three areas: 

  • Save - Lower costs and improve efficiency by using SIP trunking to interconnect networks using Cisco Unified Border Element
  • Simplify - Reduce complexity by aggregating third-party PBXs, and easing migration to an all-IP environment.
  • Extend - Deploy collaboration applications at the network core and extend them to users, even those on third-party PBXs

In this latest in the Fundamentals series from TechWiseTV, we tackle the core technology hopefully explains it in a fun way. Get your head wrapped around Session Management and make sure you are not missing anything!

TWTV115: Firewall Reinvention with the ASA-CX

Taped 2/20/12
Released 3/15/12
Bring up the topic of security to IT professionals and you are likely to get more than you bargained.  The reality is that we are torn between two extremes.  On one hand, employees want the ease and flexibility of using their device of choice and applications to perform their job most effectively.  On the other hand, many security professionals want to lock down the network and adhere to stringent, albeit needed, security guidelines.
The way to have "both" is by unlocking the power of the network and this is where Cisco SecureX comes in.  New innovations from the unified policy and enforcement components of the SecureX framework enable organizations to embrace "Bring Your Own Device" without relinquishing control.  And, the new Cisco ASA CX next-generation firewall appliance expands the ASA platform with context-aware capabilities for unprecedented visibility and control.     
Join the TechWiseTV team for an insider’s look at the ASA CX, explore the latest innovations in security, and dig into the network with a forensics analysis of routers and switches.  Check it out now!
