Attend Our Keynote: Fast Forward: The Future of IT and the Cisco ONE Solution
Presenter: Rob Soderbery, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Networking
Date: Wednesday, May 21
Time: 8:30 a.m.
The Internet of Everything is changing everything. Speed. Scale. The pressure is on. Organizations must innovate—fast. To do this, they need a model of IT that is simple, smart, and secure. The network is at the heart of this model. In fact, 78 percent of IT professionals agree that the network is more critical to delivering applications than ever before. But not just any network will do. An open networking environment is a must. It is the solution for peeling back the layers of complexity in network management. It is also the answer for increasing network agility, addressing pervasive security challenges, and beating back rising capital and operational costs. As a result, the networking industry is going through one of the most significant technology transitions in recent history, perhaps since the inception of Ethernet and IP.
This session will share how an open networking environment can extend the value of software-defined networking. This includes providing the agility and intelligence needed to apply the right solution at the right time. The Cisco ONE platform, delivering on the promise of Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), will be used as an example to demonstrate how you can simplify infrastructure operations, beginning with the network and expanding to include compute and storage, automatically mapping business logic via applications to the underlying infrastructure. The result? Seeing how you can deliver agility with a consistent policy model and security end to end.

Wireless Considerations for 802.11ac and High-Density Environments
Date: Thursday, May 22
Time: 11:45 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Speaker: Bill Rubino
As more and more devices are introduced onto wireless networks, we are all anxious to take advantage of 802.11ac, the latest Wi-Fi standard, for its higher data rates, better performance, and better coverage for more clients. But what do you need to consider when upgrading to 802.11ac for high-density environments? This session will discuss what types of challenges IT organizations are faced with today, how to get the most out of an 802.11ac deployment, and how 802.11ac is being used to address high-density environments in current and future enterprise networks. We will cover Cisco’s growing portfolio of 802.11ac products and solutions, including the High-Density Experience (HDX) technology, with various use cases and deployment types we have been seeing in the market.
