Fast cars, pinball, and a distance record for 100 Gigabit Ethernet.. Cisco Live visitors know how to live
This week’s Cisco Live event in London was not just about the networking and data centre technology. IT people visiting the show let their hair down as well.
Admittedly the lighter moments were about things like ludicrously fast cars. The Bloodhound CCS on display is a British bid to push the world land speed record above 1000mph, while other members of the Cisco ecosystem got to play Cisco pinball.
The leading product announcement was about a fast Wi-Fi access point, designed to cope with the hordes of mobile devices which workers are bringing into their offices. Other announcements from Cisco’s ecosystem included efficient green Power over Ethernet products and a network company beating the distance record for 100 Gigabit Ethernet.
