Evolution of the Enterprise Network: The Cisco Digital Network Architecture
Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture (DNA) offers a new architectural approach to meet the requirements of the digitized enterprise. This session introduces the motivation for an architecture evolution of enterprise networks and provides details on each of the building blocks.

Cutting-Edge Security Research & Investigation with Talos
Get a behind-the-scenes look inside how Cisco’s Talos Security Intelligence & Research Group gathers, processes and disseminates threat intelligence data to counter-emerging attacks. As part of the presentation, we will also discuss some of the hottest, inventive research coming out of Talos Group.

Hyperconverged Infrastructure
Hyperconverged and Software Defined Storage are hot topics with exciting opportunities for new solutions in the Data Center. This session outlines what hyperconverged solutions are, why customers are looking at these offerings and what Data Center needs they address. Learn about Cisco’s hyperconverged solution and why you should consider a UCS based solution.

How to Transform and Automate Workflows with Spark and Tropo
Integrating real-time communications into applications is a powerful productivity enhancer that businesses commonly seek to enable. Now there’s a simple way to do so using Spark and the Cisco Collaboration Cloud Platform. Learn how to add voice, SMS, messaging and other workflow-streamlining capabilities to your organization’s applications to enhance, automate and improve employee and customer workflows.

Session (2) 10:45 – Noon

Evolutions in Cloud Managed Networks
Join us for an introduction to Cisco Meraki cloud managed networking products which includes wireless access points, security appliances, System Manager and switches. You’ll learn how cloud networking offers greater reliability, easier management and lower TCO. The session includes a live demo of the exciting features in the Meraki dashboard.

Firepower Threat Defense: The First Threat-Centric Firewall
This session will cover the features and functionality of the ASAs running the Firepower Threat Defense version 6.1 code. We will walk though some deployment scenarios, basic setup and features and inspection/mitigation techniques. We will also cover the new on-box manager and how and when to leverage it.

Tetration Analytics
Using modern big data technology, Cisco has designed a powerful analytics platform. This platform, called Cisco Tetration Analytics, addresses critical Data Center operational issues in ways not possible before. Tetration provides complete visibility in Data Center and applications, and uses unsupervised machine learning techniques to generate application behavior insights and automated white-list policies for granular segmentation. This is the one session you should not miss.

How Omnichannel is Digitizing the Contact Center
Your customers don’t want to talk on the phone anymore. The demands for customer care are changing and there has never been a better time to lead in this transition. Enabling a proactive seamless customer experience across multiple channels of support has never been as challenging. In this session, learn how Cisco’s latest features offered in Enterprise (UCCE) and Express (UCCX) simplify and enable the business objectives.

Session (3) 1:30 – 2:45 p.m.

Enabling “Security Everywhere” on Enterprise Networks
There are two approaches to network security: one is to an overlay security architecture that most of the security-only companies tend to believe in and the other approach is to have a comprehensive, network-enabled approach to cybersecurity, which we at Cisco believe in. In this introductory session, you will learn why enterprise security has to be multilayered and how Cisco’s network enables you to do “Security Everywhere.”

Preventing the Plague with Cisco Advanced Threat Solutions
Threat actors are no longer hindered by your traditional lines of defense. Malware can evade prevention and remain resident in your network for months before detection. Ransomware is costing companies like yours millions in downtime and recovery expenditures. How can you surface the unknown threat before the damage is done? What can you do to analyze the attacker and the adversaries methodology to strengthen your security posture? We’ll show you how to use Cisco Advanced Malware Protection and AMP ThreatGrid to boost your environment’s immune system.

Data Center Security
Providing end-to-end security for Data Centers is a critical task that challenges enterprises. However, deploying successful Data Centers depends upon on end-to-end security in Data Center infrastructures and the virtualized environments that host application and service loads for cloud consumers. This session will discuss how to integrate additional security capabilities into Data Center design.

Get your Enterprise Apple Ready
Learn about the groundbreaking Cisco/Apple partnership, and how to make your iPhone an extension of your IP-PBX. Learn how the upcoming iOS 10 release will deliver groundbreaking capabilities such as the ability to use the native dialer to make Spark calls, answer Spark calls from a locked screen, see a consolidated view of contacts, call history, and favorites and get visibility/control to mobile calls via CDR and COR.

Session (4) 3 – 4:15 p.m.

Software-Defined Everything
What is all the buzz around “SDN?” Where does it have application, the Data Center? WAN? Campus? Security? This session will discuss industry trends around SDN, what Cisco is doing in the SDN community and begin to answer those questions. As part of Cisco’s exciting Digital Ready Architecture, APIC-EM can help organizations reduce the cost and complexity of operating their network. During this session, various software features in APIC-EM including Plug and Play, Path Trace, EasyQoS, ESA and IWAN will be introduced. Learning about these features will help you to simplify and automate your network.

Tracking Down the Cyber Criminals: Revealing Malicious Infrastructures
Cyber criminals are increasingly exploiting Internet services to build agile and resilient infrastructures, and consequently to protect themselves from being exposed and taken over. The challenge is that fragments of data broken up and spread across the Web are not immediately visible. Connecting the dots, being able to analyze a diverse set of information made of billions of pieces of discrete data gathered from across the Internet allows us to build the maps that reveal where the malicious infrastructure are hidden and attacks are staged. This can be used to build and deliver a new model of security that is pervasive and predictive, allowing us to expose the attackers.

Network Automation and Cloud Mobility
The Cisco application-centric Data Center and cloud management solution can improve your Data Center service delivery or add public cloud application deployment to your service offering. Learn how to securely deploy and manage applications to Data Center, private cloud and public cloud environments. You will also learn how to bring mobility to your private/public cloud offerings so you are not locked into a particular cloud vendor.

Cloud Enable Your CUCM! A Hands on Hybrid Services Lab
Learn how to design and deploy Cisco’s Next Generation Meetings – a simple, integrated audio, video and web conferencing solution – via a hands-on lab. Cisco’s Next Gen Meetings solution is delivered from the cloud and tightly integrated with your existing premise CUCM and collab infrastructure. This architecture delivers unprecedented capabilities, while preserving and leveraging investments in premise collaboration solutions.
