    TitleSession Description
    Growing Voice to Include Video   

    Video is a growing business communications mandate. As enterprises take advantage of video as part of ongoing business process transformation initiatives, they need an approach that makes sure of scalability, manageability, and flexibility across a multitude of devices, applications, and operating systems. Join us as we discuss how your architecture can:

    • Provide interoperability with existing assets and future technology investments
    • Deliver a consistent user experience on any device
    • Support deployment options across the premise and cloud
    • Make sure of the delivery of any content type — video, voice and data — for all your business needs
    SIP Trunking and Session Management

    SIP trunking and session management are high on IT’s agenda for good reasons: they deliver significant cost savings, simplify the network, and extend rich collaborative services to users. Consider new strategies that take maximum advantage of your existing assets while generating cost savings that will help you fund and achieve the flexible foundation for future growth that you envision.

    Learn how to:

    • Simplify heterogeneous networks and extend Cisco collaboration to all users, even those on third-party legacy private branch exchange (PBX) phones
    • Simplify your video deployments
    • More efficiently connect to anyone anywhere using the Cisco Unified Border Element and the Cisco Collaboration Edge portfolio
    Cisco’s Own Journey to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)

    Employees are bringing their own smartphones, tablets, and laptops into enterprises in increasing numbers. 

    • Can your support structure, architecture, and policy set handle this?
    • How do you control your data when it’s accessible almost anywhere by a demanding workforce?
    • What security measures are scalable to prepare for the future?
    • How can you plan for the next big device?
    Learn how Cisco IT manages one of the world’s largest BYOD deployments based on firsthand practitioner experiences and results.
    Collaboration in the Cloud:  When and Why    Cloud is a new deployment model that provides opportunities to accelerate deployment and change the funding model for collaboration services. This session will explore primary decision points to help you make informed choices about when cloud is the right choice for your organization.  Gather useful insights into significant movements in the industry and the trends shaping collaboration strategies.  By sharing typical “collaboration challenges” that we hear from customers, and what applications they are moving to the cloud and why, this will help you create your own framework for determining what, when, why, and how to move to the cloud for collaboration.
    Bringing Collaboration to Midsize Businesses

    Midsize organizations compete with both David and Goliath. Success hinges on consistently making smart decisions—including the use of smart technology. Technology should enable an organization, regardless of size, to meet the needs of its employees and customers; it should also allow businesses to adapt in order to sustain these efforts. Deployed technology must increase business productivity without increasing the risk often associated with change, while concurrently:

    • Delivering excellent customer service
    • Enhancing engagement with suppliers
    • Accelerating a wide array of common business processes

      This session is ideal for companies with up to 1000 employees.
