Mexico City, 26 August, 2013.- Cisco Live! the premier IT and communications event organized by Cisco, is taking place from 5 to 7 November on the Mexican Mayan Riviera at the Moon Palace Hotel. Amazing things happen when you connect the previously unconnected. This year attendees will have the chance to get more deep knowledge about the Internet of Everything (IoE) -- the networked connection of people, process data and things -- which represents the next significant era of the Internet.
Cisco Live! is one of the most important industry meetings that gather customers, IT experts and partners from all business segments and levels to access education and training in an environment that encourages the exchange of ideas.
"More than 99 percent of the world today is not connected to Internet," said Rogelio Velasco,
vice-president of Cisco México. "Attendees in Cisco Live! Mexico 2013 will witness how Cisco solutions will support and enable the Internet of Everything, which will deliver new capabilities, richer experiences and opportunities."
Cisco Live! Mexico 2013 will offer the following program:
- Technical Education Sessions organized in different technology tracks. Attendees can create their own agenda focusing on a single topic or attend sessions in multiple tracks for a cross-discipline approach. Sessions include product demonstrations, one-to-one meetings with experts, technical solutions clinics, and table topics those are casual conversations that take place during breakout sessions.
- Technical Seminars. These meetings consist of full-day seminars about IPv6, collaboration and business video, data center, or bring-your-own-device policies. They also include design, deployment principles and best practices.
- IT Management. The sessions will help participants understand how to use cutting-edge technology to support their business objectives. This business-oriented track comprises data center and virtualization, collaboration including business video, enterprise networking, security, service providers and certifications.
Hands-On Labs are designed to help attendees learn about a technology and to apply that knowledge through solving problems in a controlled environment. The equipment in the
Hands-On Labs will be connected to labs in the Cisco corporate offices in San Jose, Calif., giving participants access to the latest technology developed by Cisco and expert guidance.
The Hands-On Labs will be focused on collaboration and security.
- Executive symposium. This exclusive CxO-level event will discuss relevant IT- and business-related topics focused on how technology can drive business transformation.
In addition, participants will get access to the World of Solutions, an attractive trade show area designed to welcome Cisco's ecosystem partners and enhance the solutions offered to the attendees, where more than 70 partners and technology providers will present their latest products. Cisco solutions will also be showcased in the Cisco Campus, where attendees will have the opportunity to review 90 demonstrations on technologies related to service providers, video, software-defined networks, cloud solutions, data centers, big data, and the potential of IoE, among others.
