MARK PALAZZO: THIS IS THE FUTURE.

AVERY GEE: WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS A WAY FOR YOU TO WHITE BOARD AND DRAW OUT EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE THINKING AND SEND IT TO SOMEBODY ELSE.

THIS FALL, 173 EXHIBITORS GATHERED AT FIVE CISCO SITES ACROSS NORTH AMERICA TO SHARE AND LEARN FROM EACH OTHER.

MARK PALAZZO: NO ONE GROUP AND NO ONE PERSON AND NO ONE LEVEL WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION OWNS INNOVATION.

YOU KNOW, YOU CAN'T JUST HAVE, YOU KNOW, THE INNOVATION GROUP BECAUSE INNOVATION IS HAPPENING EVERYWHERE.

AVERY GEE: IT'S KIND OF DAUNTING BECAUSE ON ONE HAND, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING AND ON THE OTHER HAND YOU SORT OF DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT TO DO BECAUSE THERE'S SO MANY THINGS THAT YOU CAN POSSIBLY DO.

BHUSHAN KANEKAR: I'VE BEEN AT CISCO FOR A LONG TIME, FOR 15 YEARS. OK? WHICH OUT IN THE SILICON VALLEY IS LIKE  A LONG TIME, BUT IT KEEPS ME YOUNG.

IT'S EXCITING. IT'S LIKE WHAT MAKES ME JUMP OUT OF BED EVERY DAY TO COME TO WORK.

MARK PALAZZO: IT'S UNBELIEVABLE WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE AT CISCO, I MEAN THE LEVEL OF INNOVATION.

FREDERIC PONT: BASICALLY THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY WHEN YOU HAVE AN IDEA THAT YOU BELIEVE IN THAT WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE CORPORATION IS SIMPLY THE ABILITY TO TAKE THAT FORWARD AND TO PUSH THE LIMITS AND TO ACTUALLY MAKE IT HAPPEN.

AVERY GEE: WHAT YOU CAN DO IS ALMOST ENDLESS.

MARK PALAZZO: THIS IS THE FUTURE.
