Collaboration Cloud & Hybrid Solutions
Collaboration services are exploding and a number of deployment options are now available including on-premise, cloud and hybrid cloud. This session will review deployment considerations and features provided by on-premise and cloud deployments for collaboration services. With an understanding of the on-premise and cloud environments that exist today, we will take a look at how to deploy hybrid services with the addition of the Cisco Collaboration Cloud and Cisco Spark. This session is designed for individuals looking to understand different options for deploying collaboration environments, the benefits and considerations of each deployment.

Hyperconverged Solutions: Hyperflex
Hyperconverged and Software Defined Storage are hot topics with exciting opportunities for new solutions in the Data Center. This session outlines what hyperconverged solutions are, why customers are looking at these offerings and what Data Center needs they address. Learn about Cisco’s hyperconverged solution and why you should consider a UCS based solution.

Evolutions in Cloud Managed Networks

This session will cover the architecture involved in enabling business with Premise, Hybrid or Cloud Collaboration Meeting rooms. Covering: user experience, licensing and best practices along with the latest enhancements and connectivity requirements.

Tetration Analytics
Using modern big data technology, Cisco has designed a powerful analytics platform. This platform, called Cisco Tetration Analytics, addresses critical Data Center operational issues in ways not possible before. Tetration provides complete visibility in Data Center and applications and uses unsupervised machine learning techniques to generate application behavior insights and automated white-list policies for granular segmentation. This is the one session you should not miss.

Innovations in LAN Switching
This session provides an overview of Cisco switching innovations that can help ensure that your network is ready to support cloud-based environments, video, virtualization, and enable the data deluge with intelligent infrastructures that reach new inflection points, utilize network resources more effectively and simplify operations to lower your total cost of ownership.

Cisco Cloud Security
Providing end-to-end security for multi-tenant cloud Data Centers is a critical task that challenges service providers (SPs) and enterprises. However, deploying successful cloud Data Centers depends upon on end-to-end security in both Data Center infrastructures and the virtualized environments that host application and service loads for cloud consumers. This session will discuss how to integrate additional security capabilities into Data Center design with minimal deployment risks, addresses governance and regulatory requirements and provides improved technical controls to reduce security threats.

Network as a Sensor/Enforcer
Cisco has leveraged multiple security technologies to work with Cisco networking and security devices to provide customers with a unique approach to better securing their entire network. Cisco enables customers to leverage their existing and future investments where network deployments can act as a sensor to provide enhanced visibility, context and potential cyber threat identification for anything that connects to the network. In addition, Cisco leverages the same network devices to act as an enforcer using traffic classification and enforcement points for limiting the impact of threats from spreading and reducing the risk of data loss and/or theft. Topics: Netflow, ISE, Lancope, Trustsec.
