Cisco Live is obviously the biggest networking event of the year, and Cisco likes to use all the attention to show off some of their new gear. I must say I was impressed with the Enterprise offerings including the 6807-XL, the 6880-X, the 4451-X, and the Sup 8-E for the 4500-E. Those boxes definitely gave me a bit of a tingle when I was checking them out, but my eyes opened up when I saw the 3850. The Catalyst 3850 is the next version of the 3k line of switches and the successor to the 3750-X.
Yes, I went to Cisco Live and survived. It was the social event of the year, but the main focus is learning about the cool, new stuff. One of the booths I visited was a demonstration of Cisco Active Advisor.
I’m all set up to go to Cisco Live in Orlando this year. Good thing, too, since I couldn’t make it to San Diego last time. It’ll be a great and fun time as usual, and I’m quite excited.
For the first time ever, I’m headed to Cisco Live – the big Cisco users conference in Las Vegas! I usually don’t go to these things since I wind up just hanging out by myself, but I’m meeting all sorts…
