BRKNMS-2696 - TR-069 based home gateway management using Prime Home (2013 London)The number of Internet enabled devices in the home continues to grow, creating demand for better support and seamless inter-connectivity for the consumer. Service Providers are now realizing that to meet this demand they need better visibility into the connected home. The Cisco Prime Home solution answers this call with consumer applications and a support experience that easily integrates with existing Internet Service Provider (ISP) environments. The result is significantly lower support costs, and higher recurring revenues in a cloud based applications mode. To manage home gateways various technologies are available once the underlying IP connectivity has been set up. TR-096 standardizes the exchanges between a device provisioning server (ACS) and the home gateway. This service-provider oriented session shows what is possible from a technology point of view and reveals some of the business opportunities that are enabled by the technology. The session is of intermediate complexity but does need understanding of provisioning and configuration paradigms encountered in residential user equipment management.

BRKCDN-1117 - Virtualized Router & Virtualization Inside A Branch Router (2013 London)Virtualization is prevalent everywhere, in Data centers, in Cloud environments regardless it’s a public, private or hybrid and none the least in branch offices. Cisco is innovating in all fronts from bringing virtualization to the branch offices by building a blade server that can be hosted inside Integrated Services Router Generation 2 (ISR G2) and taking it’s industry leading routing foot print in Cloud. How does both these technologies help customers? In Branch offices by collapsing a blade server (Unified Computing System E-Series) inside a router we optimize network / compute foot print, drastically reduce total cost of ownership, simplify manageability and enable the platform to run not only Cisco appliances as virtual machines but simultaneously enable 3rd party application coexistence. In Cloud environments, customer today lack control over routing, have a primitive and fixed security framework being offered which is un-orchestrated and unmanaged by their enterprise tools and have no way of using enhanced services. Cisco’s Cloud Services Router CSR1000V removes all the limitations and restrictions and enables enterprise customers to move to Cloud seamlessly. Customers can now run a virtualized router in various cloud provider environments along with their applications. Come and learn how these technologies are creating a new deployment model within enterprise branch offices as well as in public / private clouds.

CIN-WS208 - Migrating Enterprise Networks to 802.11acMobile devices are playing a larger part in today's businesses. Enterprise IT managers are struggling to keep pace with mobility's dramatic effects on workplace productivity and requirements.
With the fast pace of mobility adoption by consumers, network usage has started to outrun the infrastructure of most enterprises’ mobile networks. One of the growing trends weighing heavily on the minds of most network IT professionals is bring-your-own-device (BYOD) access. Other trends that place a heavy demand on organizational infrastructure include the growth of bandwidth-intensive applications, such as video streaming. Included in all of this is the user’s expectation of always-on network and application performance.802.11ac is the next generation of Wi-Fi. It is designed to give enterprises the tools to meet the demands of BYOD access, high bandwidth applications, and the always-on connected user. This workshop will discuss the benefits of 802.11ac and how it is optimized for high density and high bandwidth. Central to the discussion is how 802.11ac can benefit the hospitality industry. Like many other industries, hospitality is faced with the challenge of providing higher bandwidth with an increase in client devices on the network.In this workshop, Mark Denny, Cisco Mobility Product Manager, will explore the features and the benefits of 802.11ac. Since more and more enterprise networks are considering adopting this technology, we will discuss how 802.11ac can be used today.
