Cisco Live London 2013
Many of them left with a sense of wonder and returned with their supervisors and business partners to watch the product demo. We received tons of leads and use-cases to enhance the product. It's going to be a huge challenge for the marketing team to sort through them.
Many other companies had demos and product launches.
Cisco’s big announcement was the introduction of the Catalyst 3850 Switch that unifies wired and wireless access. We were excited to learn how it will reduce management burden. Cisco also had cool demos from Meraki, ONE Controller and Cloupia.
Citrix gave us a look at their impressive CloudStack cloud portal. We believe that Anuta nCloudX’s network service virtualization solution can greatly enhance CloudStack.
Our booth neighbor in London was NetBrain. They showed their intuitive and powerful Map-driven Network Automation solution. It was really impressive.
Imperva demoed a web application firewall that integrates with vPath. This is great news for the Nexus 1000v ecosystem.
Intel had some great looking coffee.
We will be at VMware Partner Exchange in Vegas from February 25-28. We hope to see you there!
