I am Dominik Herkel. I was given the chance to listen to a very interesting and future driven workshop, directly presented by a member of Cisco Systems Austria. Martin Rosensteiner, a Systems Engineer, taught us the important networking technologies and designs of tomorrow.
We discussed the pros and cons of a modern wireless architecture and how vital and critical a well-planned wireless network is for overall business success. Then we got some information about the wireless products, e.g. Cisco Aironet Access Points and Cisco Wireless Controllers, which comply with actual standards and specifications.
The wireless portfolio led us to another important aspect, which comes up with a unified access and converged infrastructure. So we learned a lot about the new Cisco switching products and how they are connected to the rest of an advanced network.
The last topic of our workshop was the cloud managed component of Cisco’s wireless products and how they are positioned on the market. This was a special interest of mine, because for me it was very important to know in which case a cloud managed wireless solution fits better than a traditional one.
At the end of the presentation, Martin discussed with us the term Software Defined Networking (SDN) and how it could be integrated today, as well as in the future into companies and governments all over the globe.
A great thanks to Martin Rosensteiner!
