The 802.11ac standard sounds like a step backwards alphabetically...but it will soon be an incredible step forward forward for WiFi once it is ratified by the IEEE. Watch this latest fundamentals to get comfortable with the truth. 802.11n is still your best bet for 2012 and into 2013 as we continue to partner on the standards process but the future is bright indeed!
The last post generating some buzz on Twitter so I’m going to follow it up with one more. The command “show call active voice brief” is an engineer’s best friend when it comes to confirming jitter and other call quality issues.
Short and sweet for this lovely Wednesday morning: Fax passthrough encodes fax traffic with in a G.711 voice codec and sends it across the VoIP network as a voice call. The call may use any codec (G.711, G.729, G.723) etc.

Collaborate Anywhere, Anytime, on any Device with Cisco UC on UCS Live Webcast on May 2nd, 2012 at 9:00am PT/12:00pm ET
As the industry moves to a virtualization deployment methodology, we are finding many public sector customers asking to better understand this move. Many of our customers are already taking full advantage of the increased productivity, reduced operational efforts and centralized management structure designed within virtualization.
Collaboration and Unified Communication applications take full advantage of these virtualization methodologies.
Join us as we gather together some Cisco experts to discuss the "Current Offers" of Cisco’s UC on UCS portfolio. You will walk away with a clear understanding of our equipment and a good measure of confidence when selecting solutions for your environment. We will also be "Comparing our UC on UCS solution with the Cisco MCS 7800" – so you can take an educated look at comparison and comfort factors when selecting new UC or UCS equipment. We will also be discussing the "Roadmap" to help you plan for future needs.
Well, time for another IOS XR post, this time on Interface Bundles, particularly Ethernet. With IOS XR a bundle can be considered a group of one or more ports that are aggregated together and treated as one link.
For those of you who work on ASA's quite often you'll know that there's more and more, specifically SSL VPN related configurations, that you have to do with ASDM as opposed to the CLI. This forces us to use our old friend (read: nemesis) Java.
Blogger's stats are telling me that yesterday was the most-trafficked day in the history of this blog, and as much as I want to credit Titanic's 100 year anniversary, I have to think it is because of my most recent blog post.
Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) is Cisco’s next-generation policy server that provides authentication and authorization infrastructure to the Cisco TrustSec solution. It also provides two other critical services:
The first service is to provide a way to profile endpoint device type automatically based on attributes Cisco ISE receives from various information sources. This service (called Profiler) provides equivalent functions to what Cisco has previously offered with the Cisco NAC Profiler appliance.
Another important service that Cisco ISE provides is to scan endpoint compliancy; for example, AV/AS software installation and its definition file validity (known as Posture). Cisco has been previously providing this exact posture function only with the Cisco NAC Appliance.
Cisco ISE provides an equivalent level of functionality, and it is integrated with 802.1X authentication mechanisms.
Cisco ISE integrated with wireless LAN controllers (WLCs) can provide profiling mechanisms of mobile devices such as Apple iDevices (iPhone, iPad, and iPod), Android-based smartphones, and others. For 802.1X users, Cisco ISE can provide the same level of services such as profiling and posture scanning. Guest services on Cisco ISE can also be integrated with the Cisco WLC by redirecting web authentication requests to Cisco ISE for authentication.
This document introduces the wireless solution for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), such as providing differentiated access based on known endpoints and the user policy. This document does not provide the complete solution of BYOD, but serves to demonstrate a simple use case of dynamic access. Other configuration examples include using the ISE sponsor portal, where a privileged user can sponsor a guest for provisioning wireless guest access.
zPerf is a bandwidth performance measurement app for OS X. The app can operate as a client and/or server. zPerf can be used for OS X-to-OS X testing or iOS-to-OS X testing using our WiFiPerf app for iOS. zPerf should work with other operating systems that support iPerf3 but has only been tested with our WiFiPerf app.
The Cisco Entrepreneur Institute’s mission is to empower and enable SMB customers with the knowhow they need to accelerate their business through the effective use of Cisco technology solutions, said Andres Sintes, Global Director – Cisco Learning Partner Channel.
The institute’s tech-enabling business practices looks to maximize the end-to-end Business to Technology Learning & Enablement experience for all our customers and channel partners.
The main objective of the Cisco Entrepreneur Institute is to train small business owners and entrepreneurs that, in absence of the correct skills and a successful business plan, are challenged to develop and grow their businesses. The Cisco Entrepreneur Institute Program has been developed by Cisco in 37 countries, and was launched in Europe in October 2011 and includes course and workshop modules such as, ‘Create a Business’, ‘Growing a Business’, ‘iEXEC Enterprise Essentials’, and ‘Entrepreneurial Mindset’. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to access other interesting content, for example videos of entrepreneurial leaders.
