Session (1) 9:45 – 10:45 a.m.

Enabling "Security Everywhere" on Enterprise Networks
There are two approaches to network security: one is to an overlay security architecture that most of the security-only companies tend to believe in, and the other approach is to have a comprehensive, network-enabled approach to cybersecurity, which we at Cisco believe in. In this introductory session, you will learn why Enterprise security has to be multilayered and how Cisco's network enables you to do "Security Everywhere."

Tetration - The Increasing Need for Real Time DC Analytics with Pervasive Visibility
In a world characterized by increased virtualization, cloud computing, software defined networking SDN and DevOps, and now containers and microservices having comprehensive visibility into every flow and packet, metadata is essential. See the now with Tetration including a lecture and demo.

Technical Update: Cisco Collaboration 11.x
This session will provide a update on the new features, enhancements and licensing for the Collaboration Solution Release 11.5.

Secure Data Center - Next Generation Firewall in High Performance Throughput
Block more threats and quickly mitigate those that do breach your defenses with the industry’s first threat-focused NGFW. Our Cisco Firepower NGFW appliances combine our proven network firewall with the industry’s most effective next-gen IPS and advanced malware protection. You'll get more visibility, be more flexible, save more and protect better.

Session (2) 11 a.m. – Noon

Learn the Meraki portfolio and about the benefits of a cloud managed infrastructure.

Hyperconverged Computing
What is this hyperconverged infrastructure we keep hearing about? This session outlines technologies surrounding hyperconverged solutions. Learn about Cisco's new HyperFlex offering with a deeper look into the architecture of this new appliance and why it is different. We will take a live look into the day-to-day operations and administration of the system and just how simple storage management can be.

Designing and Deploying Multiparty Conferencing for Video
Showcasing Cisco’s Next Generation Meetings leveraging Cisco's collaboration tools for WebEx, CMR, Spark and Video. You have never seen “scheduling and joining a meeting” be so easy!

Cisco Cloud Security with CloudLock
CloudLock is a frictionless solution that is installed in minutes, protects cloud applications and provides codeless security for custom-built apps. From crowd-sourced security analytics across billions of data points, to advanced machine learning, to the data scientist-led CyberLab, CloudLock provides actionable cybersecurity intelligence across an organization’s entire cloud infrastructure.

Session (3) 1 – 2 p.m.

The Evolution of Wireless Within the Digital Network Architecture
Today everything is becoming digital: machines communicating with other machines, employees retrieving the information they need allowing their work to be done anywhere and everywhere, customers interacting with their favorite brands and suppliers and the network becoming a source of insights. Since most of these interactions will be over Wi-Fi networks, this session will discuss the latest in Wi-Fi technologies to support the evolving digital network architecture, including .11AC WAVE 2, mGig, FastLane and CMX. We will also provide a peek into the future of Edge Network Management with APIC-EM.

Hybrid IT Advantage - Cisco CloudCenter
Use Cisco CloudCenter (formerly CliQr) to securely deploy and manage applications to Data Center, private cloud and public cloud environments. This application-centric Data Center and cloud management solution can improve your Data Center service delivery or add public cloud application deployment to your service offering.

Powerful Collaboration Apps the Easy Way: Spark and the Cisco Collaboration Cloud APIs and SDKs
Integrating real-time communications into applications is a powerful productivity enhancer that businesses commonly seek to enable. Now there's a simple way to do so using Spark and the Cisco Collaboration Cloud Platform. This session will be an overview of Spark Message and Call. We will dive into business applications and integration via the embedded APIs.

Cisco OpenDNS - Security Before the Firewall
OpenDNS Umbrella creates a new layer of cloud-delivered protection in the network security stack, on and off the corporate network. Umbrella prevents command and control callbacks, malware and phishing over any port or protocol.

Session (4) 2:15 – 3:15 p.m.

Evolution of the Enterprise Network: The Cisco Digital Network Architecture
Cisco's Digital Network Architecture (DNA) offers a new architectural approach to meet the requirements of the digitized enterprise. This session introduces the motivation for an architecture evolution of enterprise networks and provides details on each of the building blocks.

Software-Defined Data Center
What is all the buzz around “SDN?" Where does it have application, the Data Center? This session will discuss industry trends around SDN and what Cisco is doing in the SDN community.

The New Contact Center Experience
The demands for customer care are changing and there has never been a better time to help lead our customers. Enabling a proactive seamless customer experience across multiple channels of support has never been as challenging. In this session, learn how Cisco’s latest features offered in Enterprise (UCCE) and Express (UCCX) simplify and enable the business objectives.

Ransomware Defense Solution Overview
Cyber criminals are increasingly exploiting Internet services to build agile and resilient infrastructures, and consequently to protect themselves from being exposed and taken over. The challenge is that fragments of data broken up and spread across the Web are not immediately visible. Connecting the dots, being able to analyze a diverse set of information made of billions of pieces of discrete data gathered from across the Internet allows us to build the maps that reveal where the malicious infrastructure are hidden and attacks are staged. This can be used to build and deliver a new model of security that is pervasive and predictive, allowing us to expose the attackers.
