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.
