ITMCOC-2577 - Inside Cisco IT: Pervasive Video Strategy (2012 London)You've decided to expand from five video endpoints to 500, but where to start? Planning for pervasive video is tougher than supporting voice or data, but it doesn�t have to be overwhelming. Learn from Cisco IT's four-year journey integrating thousands of endpoints and gain valuable insight for your own deployment. Just as vital as technology are the process and culture changes required for holistic video management. Not only will you learn about the deployment of video, but also how to align to your business values and increase user adoption. Beyond the technology itself, it�s important to understand the implementation processes involved and how to drive culture change throughout the organization.
ITMCOC-2568 - Inside Cisco IT: Elastic Infrastructure Services (2012 London)The Private Cloud is one of the fastest growing solutions today and the significance of the secure multi-tenant data center on business goals is increasing. Cisco IT is building the infrastructure foundation for Cloud Computing, but true virtualization of the data center environment requires a holistic approach in managing and orchestrating network, server and storage resources within a data center and across multiple data centers.
Cisco IT has been a fundamental driver in building and adapting the suite of management tools needed today to orchestrate virtual data center infrastructure to deliver business services. Attendees will learn how Cisco IT is architecting, designing and implementing these next-generation virtual data center orchestration solutions, and possible directions for cloud computing management.
Cisco IT is migrating most of their traditional data center applications to a radically simplified virtual compute platform. This has significantly reduced the number of network and server devices and the cable overhead within the data center, while also speeding deployment time and overall application deployment agility. We have aggressively deployed Cisco Unified Computing System servers and Nexus physical and virtual switches to provide the infrastructure foundation for cloud computing inside Cisco. CITEIS Gen2 Program Delivering Multi-Tenant IaaS Cloud Solution. It�s an End-to-End, fully integrated CIAC based Cloud Solution. Attendees will learn about the difficulties involved in migrating a heterogeneous set of data center platforms and applications to a virtualized platform. Attendees will also hear Cisco IT�s initial results of this server platform migration in terms of cost savings and power reduction as well as enabling more reliable data center architectures at an acceptable cost. Additionally we can share our early experience in creating and expanding the cloud computing platform within the enterprise.
Session highlights include:
� Multi-tenant Data Center Design
� Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
� Reducing data center operating costs
� Driving higher utilization of existing servers and storage devices
� Business continuity
� Organization Alignment
� Application transformation
BRKUCC-2725 - Deploying Cisco Unity Connection Unified Messaging or Single Inbox Messaging with On-Premise or Cloud Applications (2012 Melbourne)Current trends in business have IT professionals demanding the flexibility to deploy different types of voice messaging capabilities, on-premise or in the cloud, to their segmented employee populations for various reasons, including compliance.

BRKGS-2019 - You can't manage what you don't measure. You can't measure what you can't see. (2012 London)Partner Presentation
With the dramatic growth in the number of connected devices, the increasing breadth of applications and the explosive growth of the volume of traffic on the network, a new approach is required to ensure that management and monitoring systems have the right visibility to the appropriate network traffic. Although SPAN ports and network TAPs certainly provide some non-invasive visibility, they lack the intelligence that is essential to allow NOC and SOC teams to control and manage the flow of traffic to the management/monitoring systems. This session will explore a new approach " the Visibility Fabric " that addresses the limitations of the current approach and provides a real-world solution to this challenge.

The cornerstones of the approach and techniques discussed in this session are real-world use cases, prescriptive design guidance, and modular architectural components.
Although not required to register for this session, attendees for this session will benefit from an understanding of LAN switching and routing fundamentals equivalent to a CCNA level.
BRKVIR-2002 - Deploying Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Cisco Virtual Workspace (VXI) (2013 Orlando)Many companies are pursuing virtual desktops to enhance data protection, improve disaster recovery, increase agility, enable mobility, support bring your own, migrate to Windows 7, and more. Shortly, hosted virtual desktops are expected to exceed 10% of the current 500 million enterprise desktops. What will companies gain? What will they give up? To start off, we'll cover the application trends and VDI drivers behind the growth and the commonly used solutions and technologies with a review of Cisco Virtual Workspace (VXI). For enterprise Collaboration, we�ll review the implications of deploying hosted virtual applications and desktops on interactive voice/video and corporate communications/streaming. For the enterprise workspace, we'll address thin, hybrid, and thick client strategies for various types of users addressing their general benefits and/or limitations. For Borderless Network, we�ll look at the implications of deploying hosted virtual desktop on existing network services like call control, bridging, Quality of Service (QoS), Content Delivery Networks (CDN) streaming, multicast streaming, WAN acceleration, campus switching, printing, etc. We'll cover how to deliver the virtual desktops over the WAN using acceleration with details on the network bandwidth and latency requirements and expectations. For Data Center, we'll review how to plan design data center compute, storage, network, load balancing, and security for large scale hosted applications and desktops. Lastly, we�ll put it all together with architectures for large scale highly available hosted virtual desktop deployments. The primary takeaways for attendees will be how to: 1. Scale the data center 2. Secure hosted virtual desktop 3. Preserve the user experience while centralizing client/server applications. 4. Reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
BRKCOL-2455 - Fixing SIP Problems with Cisco Unified Communications Manager's SIP Normalization Tools (2013 Orlando)Increasingly, systems and applications use SIP to communicate with each other; unfortunately, not all SIP implementations use compatible message headers or bodies. These SIP compatibility issues can bring projects to a halt while waiting for code fixes, new software versions, or expensive service calls. When faced with these issues, the SIP Transparency & Normalization Feature of Cisco Unified Communications Manager provides a tool for the administrator to deal with incompatibilities in the SIP messages exchanged between systems.
This session will review SIP basics and terminology before introducing the SIP Normalization Feature in Unified CM. We'll look at how to configure Unified CM to leverage SIP Normalization, how some simple scripting makes this feature so powerful, discuss the kinds of information you'll need before writing a script, and cover scripting basics. Finally, we'll show real-world examples of SIP Normalization Scripts used to solve interoperability issues.
