COCCOL-3467 - Inside Cisco IT: Business Value of Collaboration (2012 San Diego)Cisco has long been a leader in using the web to improve business performance. As the web has evolved to “Web 2.0,” with a shift to collaboration, Cisco continues to lead in adopting new Web 2.0 collaboration solutions. Today, we would like to share Cisco’s experiences by profiling a number of collaboration case studies and quantifying the benefits we have realized. We will also share frameworks we have found helpful in identifying opportunities for adopting these new collaboration capabilities.
We realize that not all of our Web 2.0 initiatives will be applicable to other organizations. In profiling our experiences, however, we will highlight basic principles we believe are relevant to many organizations.
We have linked the terms “collaboration” and “Web 2.0” because we see them as closely connected. We are aware that “Web 2.0” has many definitions. Rather than worry about which definition is best, we would like to point out that most Web 2.0 definitions share common themes around information sharing, social networking, and collaboration. Increasingly, the Internet is being used as a platform for collaboration rather than as a repository of static pages. And, this collaboration is not just taking place on the consumer side, with services such as FaceBook, but also within the business world.
New collaboration technologies are having a transformative impact on organizations in two ways:
First, they are enhancing existing collaboration activities. This is where collaboration was already occurring, but we have found ways to make it better, faster, and richer, such as via TelePresence and web conferencing.
Second, these technologies are enabling new ways of collaborating. Here, there was little or no collaboration occurring before the solution. Examples include expert location capabilities, web spaces where teams can collaborate, and online communities.
Although we have already achieved significant financial benefits from our collaboration initiatives, we are still in the early, high-growth stage of Web 2.0. For some initiatives, we are still working to develop new approaches of quantifying the value from these new ways of working. Today, we will present both case studies where we have quantified the value, as well as other case studies that offer compelling examples of Web 2.0, but where we have not yet quantified the financial impact.

ITMCCS-2580 - Hybrid Cloud Networking (2012 London)"In a Cloud Computing environment a customer (enterprise or tenant) may acquire resources in (one or more) Public Cloud operated / owned by a Cloud SP to satisfy occasional peak demands (Cloud Burst) or acquire resources permanently for certain applications (such as backup or permanent workload outsourcing to Cloud). A tenant may decide to move certain components of distributed or parallel or multi-tiered applications to (off-premises) Cloud and keep others on tenant premises (on-premises). For example, DB tier remaining on-premises, whereas web and app tiers moving to Public Cloud or a set of slave nodes of a distributed/parallel application moving to Public Cloud. In this case a number of issues should be addressed, such as on-premises resources should be able to work seamlessly with off-premises Cloud resident resources, where firewall and other enterprise policies between tiers or components remaining intact. In addition a tenant may want to manage seamlessly on-premises and off-premises resources together (as if they are on the tenant intranet). We call a Cloud that facilitates seamless access to, execution of applications on, and management of on-premises and off-premises resources, a Seamless Hybrid Cloud (SHC).
An SHC, first and foremost, will be facilitated by seamless and secure connectivity between on-premises and off-premises resources. While a typical (L2/L3) VPN can be used for seamless connectivity, it may not be suitable for a number of reasons. In a typical VPN, the end-points (EP) land on tenant premises. But in the case of a Hybrid Cloud there are EPs that are on the tenant side and the others on the Cloud side (EPs landing on public Cloud DCs), which is further complicated by a number of issues : 1) Public Cloud DCs host multiple tenants, 2) virtual Cloud resources of a particular tenant may be distributed over multiple physical resources (in one or more Cloud DCs), 3) multiple tenants sharing the same physical resources. These issues make it challenging to decide where to position the EPs on the Cloud side.
In this case study, we discuss how PPVPN (Provider Provided VPN) can be extended to support SHC. "

BRKSPM-2005 - LTE Policy and Charging Control Architecture (2013 Orlando)Today's mobile internet is being driven by rapid change across the ecosystem. The challenges that mobile operators face are far more complex than just increasing data traffic. A growing number of connected devices and a growing variety of these devices ("phablets," smart meters, autos, sensors, etc.) are running more and more apps for our productivity and entertainment. Even as LTE promises to bring down the cost per bit through improved efficiencies, an always-on architecture means more concurrent sessions per subscriber on the network, with each new LTE subscriber increasing the number of transactions exponentially. Traditionally, the policy and charging rules function (PCRF) of the network is where operators mounted their defensive approach to network management -- ensuring fair usage, capping and throttling users and/or traffic types. This is what's commonly referred to as Policy 1.0. As more and more operators look to differentiate their service plans, policy control has become a strategic point of network control, not just for cutting costs, but as a way to monetize the traffic. This next level, Policy 2.0, focuses on the subscriber, the application, and how the service provider can deliver a more relevant online experience. If 3G was coverage focused; LTE is capacity focused -- ideally suited to deliver high-bandwidth, latency-intolerant, multi-media services. A scalable policy control solution must harness the capabilities of an LTE architecture to differentiate these services and create new business models based on the dynamic control of QoS at an application and flow level.
