NOC Panel
Thursday June 11 at 1:00PM – 2:30PM, 8 Upper Level

Have you ever wondered what is involved building and tearing down a network in the span of a week?

Our panelist will talk about the Cisco Live network and the technologies in use, as well as the Network Operations Center or NOC that manages it. You'll discover what worked, leading practices that were followed, and statistics from the event. This is a must-see panel for anyone involved in operating a network, especially one that has to move with agility and adapt constantly. Hopefully, you have more than a few days to build and fine tune your network. You will benefit from hearing what was done, how it was done and what was learned all over the course of the week.

There will be panelists representing Routing, Switching, Wireless, the design, products and roll out of security as well as Cisco's Remote Monitoring Service for security plus Storage, Network Management and of course fun stats from the show.
