Cisco Live Unfolds: The Chambers Keynote

Join us to experience and weigh in on the John Chambers keynote as it happens from Cisco Live, today at 3:30 p.m. PDT.

The infrastructure community is abuzz this week with the 25th anniversary of Cisco's largest customer event, Cisco Live. Even if you can't be in San Francisco in person, you can join Network Computing as we cover the action all week. With 600 technical sessions available, nine keynote presentations, and a record-breaking 23,000 IT professionals, there's sure to be plenty to talk about.

Cisco expects up to 200,000 online conference attendees as well, and if you haven't registered already, you can go here to do so. Then join us today at 3:30 pm PDT (6:30 p.m. EDT) when Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers takes the stage for the opening keynote. Chambers is scheduled to speak about Cisco's role in the Internet of Everything vision and what it's calling "the new application economy." 

Managing editor Marcia Savage and I will be following Chambers's thoughts and chiming in with our own reactions in the comments section below while the presentation is taking place. We invite you all to add your own comments, whether you are watching the keynote in person, streaming it on your desktop, or just checking in for an update.

We'll also be tweeting and posting content throughout the week, so let us know what you're interested in. 

See you at showtime!

Re: Cisco Live network traffic.
It's a big number, it equates to around 306MB severed to each individual at the event, in such a small amount of time.

Re: Cisco Live network traffic.
Susan,

I am guessing more is going to be live video and the sort, only seeing a peak of 2600 #CLUS tweets an hour. 

Well, since the band and dance troupe outside the World of Solutions has started taking over the audio spectrum, I'll be signing off and going into the World of Solutions. 

Thanks everyone for following along and pitching in on the conversation. Be sure to watch my week's festive tweetery at @gallifreyan and I'll hope to see many of you this week at Cisco Live!
