Cisco Campus

Immerse yourself in Cisco’s solutions, products, services, and technologies by visiting product technology and industry zones in the Cisco Campus. The Campus will be full of learning opportunities, one-on-one discussions, and interactive activities.


  • Explore how Cisco empowers you to take on your biggest challenges and lead your organization’s digital transformation.
  • Take a deep dive into Cisco’s latest products, solutions, and services through interactive demos.
  • Visit the Cisco Campus Zones to experience and interact with Cisco’s products, solutions, and services through demonstrations presented by Cisco experts.

DevNet Zone

Dive into the DevNet Zone where anyone developing using Cisco technology can get hands-on with every element of the DevNet developer program plus get face-to-face support from the developer teams.


DevNet provides developers with the tools, resources and code needed to build innovative, network-enabled solutions. The zone features theater sessions, panels, workshops, learning labs, demos, classrooms and more.

Network Operations Center (NOC)

Visit the NOC to experience how Cisco Live rapidly builds and centrally manages a highly available and secure Cisco Enterprise Network. Speak with distinguished engineers and solutions experts to discuss the Barcelona deployment and to share your own design and build experiences.


Have you ever wondered what it takes to build and tear down a network in the span of a week? In this on-demand session from Cisco Live 2017, Berlin, our NOC team will talk about the network and the technologies in use, as well as the Network Operations Center that manages it. This is a must-see panel for anyone involved in operating a network, especially one that has to move with agility and adapt constantly.

Technical Solutions Clinics

Technical Solutions Clinics are informal whiteboard discussions that give you the opportunity to explain your situation, in detail, to a Technical Community Advocate (TAC) or another qualified Cisco representative. You’ll receive their perspective on the best strategy to your concerns and suggestions for solutions you may not have considered.
