SOLCLD-2010 - Smart Manufacturing Enables Guaranteed Business Outcomes (2017 Las Vegas)Enabling a manufacturing environment with an IoT end to end solutions provides a great deal of benefits to a business. Many manufacturing companies struggle with maximizing the return on invested capital, unplanned machine downtime, quality issues, as well as supply chain efficiencies on the factory floor. A "connected factory" allows for real time visibility as to what is occurring on the factory floor. Applying analytics to the data the sensors capture off the machines creates the ability to predict equipment failures, before they occur. This significantly reduces unplanned machine downtime, increases the life of the asset, as well as streamline the flow of raw materials, making the supply chain operate much smoother. Because an end to end IoT solution provides objective data gathered by sensors and analyzed through analytics software rather than being gathered and analyzed by humans, guaranteed business outcomes are now being offered. This guarantee mitigates the risk companies might perceive when deciding whether or not to invest in a "connected factory" initiative.

PSOSEC-1905 - Protection against ransomware for medium sized businesses (2017 Berlin)Cyber crime is on the rise worldwide and criminals are increasingly targeting midsized companies. A January 2016 New York Times article reported that 60% of all online attacks are aimed at small and midsize businesses. A 2016 Ponemon global study found that in any two-year period, there is a 26% chance that your business will be breached and the average cost to deal with that breach is $4M. These statistics are shocking, and should give every CEO pause. Even more shocking is that 25% of midsized organizations have no in-house information security resource dedicated to combat cyber crime. Ransomware is an indiscriminant threat that doesn't prejudice. Attackers will use ransomware to make a profit from any size organization so long as they can find a vulnerability to exploit.

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.

CCSSEC-2202 - Clouds in My Coffee: How -- and Why -- a Global Leading Pharma CRO is Making BYOD Ubiquitous (2012 San Diego)The world’s largest leading Global pharmaceutical services provider Quintiles has been undergoing a technology revolution. A revolution in the way its employees work, the way its customers interact with the company, and the way the company is leading a competitive transformation through their IT organization. As part of that transformation, Quintiles has sought a reasonable way for its 23,000 employees to bring their own devices to their offices – smartphones, laptops and tablets of any kind and they’re making it simple for those employees to access information and applications. A trip to the local Starbucks convinced a few of their top executives that it was easier to get on the network at the coffee shop than it was in their own environment and thus the company’s BYOD initiative was born. But, it was the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) that helped put BYOD into action, providing secure, role-based wireless access for its myriad users, regardless of device or location.
Founded 30 years ago, and now the global leading pharmaceutical research and services company, Quintiles has helped develop or commercialize all of the top 50 best-selling products or compounds used in prescription drugs and can make similar claims for at least the past 10 years. Protecting their intellectual property is a given, yet the company was faced with the reality that most people bring at least one wireless device with them to work, and increasingly that’s more than just a smartphone. Employees wanted the flexibility to be able to work anywhere, anytime, whether in the office, on the road or at home.
Now the global firm has revamped its IT infrastructure, including its unified wireless capabilities, expecting to roll out to 110 sites by the end of 2012 providing a borderless network experience for applications, voice and video. Thirty of the company’s branch offices already enable employees to register their iPads and jump on the BYOD network. In the next phase, they will lock down wired ports for contractors who frequently reside in hot desk and shared work areas. The final phase will expand the build-out of network access from home leveraging CVO for some of the companies power users who are home based. Each user group has differentiated access based on the control that the Cisco ISE provides. Their BYOD user base is expected to triple beyond the current 2000 concurrent users through 2013.
The result is that the company can be better supported in advancing its business initiatives regardless of location, more closely work with its customers and contractors, and not be trapped with cumbersome network access policies and processes while keeping the network and its data secure.
BRKSEC-1003 - Social Networking Security (2012 San Diego)This session will talk about the security concerns of social networking and the impact it has to employees and also the company.

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. "

PSOCRS-2444 - Cisco campus access switching architectures (2014 Milan)
In less than one year, architectural options have been made available to customers for campus switching designs. While traditional access, requiring individual management of devices, stacks or clusters keeps offering a flexible and highly robust and manageable solution for any deployment, other solutions have been designed to meet operation simplicity and mobility requirements.
The first alternative to traditional access is to shift to a cloud managed access network with Cisco Meraki devices. With these Cisco Meraki switches and access points one can simply plug them in any network and manage them throuhg a web portal available on the Internet. Another path to simplicty is to opt for Instant Access solution introduced on catalyst 6500/6800, in which the access switches (or stacks of switches) are seen as line cards of the distribution devices and do not need to be managed anymore as separate pieces of equipment. The third option is Converged Access, driven this time by the drastic increase of mobility and the 802.11ac new standard offering now Gigabit wireless access. Converged access architecture consists in distributing the wifi traffic processing (ie. CAPWAP termination) directly on access switches. This session will introduce the 4 aforementionned campus switching architectures: Cloud managed, Traditional Access, Instant Access and Converged Access with impacts on the choice of switching platforms. Positionning will be presented through concrete examples and case studies, and combination options of these solutions will also be discussed during the session.
