Check out The Network's top stories of the week and what to look forward to next week!

Congrats! You made it to Friday!  It's been a busy two weeks on the political front with both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Cisco technology helped make both events more accessible to millions, providing networked infrastructure extensive enough to support a medium sized corporation! Of course, the Network Team was there to bring you an inside look. Stay tuned for more content in the coming weeks.

Speaking of election news, check out some of the stories we brought you this week, including one about Campaign 2012.
