At Cisco Live 2014 you can choose from over 300 breakout sessions which are organised into distinct tracks incorporating core technology education and delivered by Cisco Engineers. Sessions are 90 minutes and 120 minutes in duration and cover all levels from beginners to advanced.
Learn how other customers and Cisco itself are deploying Cisco technologies and solutions (both for customers and internally). The objective is to share lessons learned, best practices, and possibly even pain points and suggested enhancements for the future. These sessions will provide an overview about a project, the projects objectives, the proposed design and implementation details.
Case Studies are presented either by the customer, partner or Cisco itself. As every project is unique, so are the Case Studies – don’t miss the opportunity to learn from your peers in the industry.
These sessions look at the strategy that drives technology or business decisions within a specific vertical industry; and examine the trends and solutions being implemented to help with those specific industry challenges.
Product and Solutions Overviews
These sessions are open to anyone attending Cisco Live, and give the latest information on specific Cisco product lines, with in-depth information on ROI projections, case studies and deployment examples.
Get direct, hands-on experience in a lab session. Offering four hour, instructor led bookable labs as well as 45 minute walk-in-labs, each lab session is designed to be self-paced with mentors available to provide guidance and answer your questions. Each student will have their own pod of equipment on which to work.
Meet The Engineer
Cisco Live’s Meet the Engineer sessions allow you to connect with the people who design and develop Cisco solutions through bookable and ad-hoc face-to-face meetings, so you can get their perspective on the best approach to your unique challenges. It’s your opportunity to find out why Cisco solutions work the way they do – and to get fresh insight into how you can put those solutions to work in your own business to maximise efficiency and extend your network’s capabilities.
Technical Solutions Clinics
Join Cisco experts who spend their days troubleshooting implementation, application, and integration issues for clients in a whiteboard discussion focused on your specific network challenges.
These informal whiteboard discussions allow you to explain your situation in detail to a Technical Community Advocate (TAC) or other qualified Cisco representative and get their take on the best approach, with suggestions for solutions you may not have considered. Clinics will be available for the following technology areas:
- Data Center & Virtualization
- Routing and Switching
- SP mobility
- SP video
- Network management
(pre-conference only – Monday, January 27, 2014)
Technical Seminars are a comprehensive half day or full-day tutorial seminar, addressing a variety of technology areas. Each Technical Seminar includes design principles based on case studies and best practices. Some sessions also cover advanced concepts and future technologies.
Our four-hour and eight-hour Technical Seminars are appropriate for anyone interested in a comprehensive overview of one technology or application and are designed to complement the Technology Breakout Sessions available throughout Cisco Live 2014.
Sometimes the best way to learn about new technologies is through an open discussion that includes different perspectives. Panel discussions give you the opportunity to hear a wide range of views on important topics from people inside and outside Cisco — including other vendors, customers, and industry experts.
Cisco Lives’ panel discussion format focuses on the big-picture concepts and ideas that promise to transform the way we communicate and collaborate.
During lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday you can join a Cisco expert and your peers in these casual conversations focusing on the hot topics addressed in breakout sessions. Table Topics discussions offer a fresh perspective on the issues that everyone is talking about at Cisco Live You set the agenda. Please note, Table Topics is a free, walk-in event. Pre-registration is not required, but seating is based on availability so arrive early!
