Here’s an inspiring video for you to start off your work week. 🙂
Yesterday, I posted a link to a Light Reading article about in-stadium connectivity at the Staples Center downtown Los Angeles. The project, by Verizon and Cisco Systems is called Stadium Vision.
If you are interested in learning *even more*, here is a link to a local news story about the project (which also includes a 2 minute video). Exciting stuff!
Well, on this first Friday of the new Fiscal Year, I had a few minutes to catch up on things. One was to watch the Cisco Live 2011 Highlights video. I happened to be up in Las Vegas supporting some of my accounts during the event (Vegas is a part of my territory). Being new to Cisco, I have to say that I was surprised as to how *BIG* Cisco Live really was.
It was being held at The Mandalay Bay, where I have attended INTEROP the last several years. So I thought it was roughly the same size in terms of size and scope. Wowers – I was *way* off. Cisco Live was much bigger and more comprehensive. In all fairness, I didn’t actually attend the event, but I can tell you in terms of signage, space, and presence of attendees, I was impressed.
By the way, since I wasn’t an attendee, I didn’t get one of the cool Cisco Live backpacks. Let me know if you want to send one my way…
It’s true. I took a new job with Cisco. I am now working as a Mobility CSE (Consulting Systems Engineer). I am specifically working on Enterprise accounts within Cisco’s Pacific Southwest Operation.
I was joking with my manager that I needed three things from Cisco before making a more official announcement on taking my new position – a badge, a laptop, and a pay check. In my opinion, that’s the Cisco hat trick! 🙂 (For those of you who don’t know, I am a *huge* NHL hockey fan). I’m happy to report that I have been on the job for approximately a month and right now, drinking from the firehose.
For all those who want to take a drink with me, here’s a great 5 minute video on one of Cisco’s newest products – the Identity Services Engine.
