    This July, I attended Cisco C-Scape, where we were able to learn more about Cisco’s strategy and business from key company executives, as well as discuss the role of the network and the broader global market. C-Scape is a targeted analyst event taking place during the larger Cisco Live 2016 event held in Las Vegas on July 11-12. Cisco Live hosted more than 28,000 paying Cisco customers and partners, who could choose from 100s of training sessions to learn about new Cisco technologies and products and visit Cisco partner exhibits and meet other customers. The exhibition hall was much larger than many of the focused SDN/NFV conferences I usually attend.

    Recently, I attended F5’s IAC and had a chance to meet with F5 executives including John McAdam, President and CEO; Karl Triebes, EVP of Product Development and CTO; Julian Eames, EVP and COO; Dave Schmitt, VP of Product Development and Chief Architect; and Ryan Kearny, SVP of Product Development. This is F5’s first analyst conference since the departure of Manny Rivelo, which caused John McAdams to come out of retirement and retake the CEO office. Though the top-level vision for F5 remains unchanged from last year—delivering applications without constraints, which according to F5 means delivering the most secure, fast, and reliable applications to anyone, anywhere, any time—there is a greater sense of urgency within F5 for transformation to meet the changing application architecture landscape. F5 remains the ADC market leader with 41% of ADC revenue in 1Q16 according to IHS’s Data Center Network Equipment Market Tracker – Regional.
