Cisco Campus

The Cisco Campus will look a bit different this year. We’re moving away from architecture-focused demonstrations to presenting our solutions and products in everyday life scenarios and end-to-end stories. Take a deep dive into Cisco’s latest product and solutions at our five Solution Stops where you can see live demonstrations and white board your technical challenges.


Don’t forget to check out the true heartbeat of Cisco Live—the Network Operations Center (NOC) and the Security Operations Center– where you can see live what it takes to deploy, manage, and secure the Cisco Live network.
