No sooner had I returned from CiscoLive! in London that it was time to start preparing for CiscoLive! Las Vegas. This year's show is shaping up to be a lot of fun (and a lot of work). Since I had so much fun helping with the Network Operations Center (NOC) last year, I've signed up to do it again this year. We're trying to make the NOC a lot more visible and accessible this year. We'll be showing off products and technologies like Energywise, Medianet, the new Catalyst 6500 Supervisor 2T, video analytics, and of course CiscoWorks LMS 4.0.1. Just like last year, the NOC will be situated in the main hallway just outside the World of Solutions. We want to showcase a lot of video this year to highlight what's happening in the network and in the show. So it should be hard to miss the NOC with all of the monitors we'll have tacked to it .
In addition to the NOC, I'll be presenting at five different breakout sessions.
|Session Number||Session Title|
|BRKCDN-1114||Building Innovative Solutions with IOS Embedded Automation Technologies|
|BRKNMS-1035||The NOC at CiscoLive|
|BRKNMS-2030||Onboard Automation with Cisco IOS Embedded Event Manager|
|BRKNMS-2035||Ten Cool LMS Tricks to Better Manage Your Network|
|BRKNMS-3021||Advanced Cisco IOS Device Instrumentation|
BRKNMS-1035 is going to be interesting. Unlike a typical presentation, this session will mainly be showing off what we did to build and manage the network at CiscoLive!. We're going to bring a lot of pictures, video, and stories to help you understand everything that goes in to building a network that lives for a week and services over 10,000 users. It should be a fun session filled with some good discussions.
BRKNMS-2035 is a completely new session that will team Jason Davis and I up again. We always have a great time when we present together. We tend to bring a lot of energy (and celebrity impressions) to our talks. If you ever wanted to know how Sean Connery or Arnold Schwarzenegger would use LMS, then this session is for you . Seriously, we've come up with some really cool tips to help you make better use of LMS, and become a more effective network manager.
Of course, I'll be presenting on embedded automation. My three embedded automation sessions cover the Embedded Event Manager, EASy, Tcl, Embedded Syslog Manager, Embedded Packet Capture, and the Data Collection Manager. Checkout BRKCDN-1114, BRKNMS-2030, and BRKNMS-3021 if you want to make IOS the most powerful tool in your network.
We're also going to be continuing our communities outreach at CiscoLive! Vegas. Many of the TAC CSC experts will be there demonstrating the power of CSC and the advantages of our Cisco Designated VIP program.
So if you want to meet some of the CSC rock stars that you interact with here every day, book your tickets now to CiscoLive! Las Vegas . It's going to be an amazing time.
