Smart Billboards, Connected Bus Stops And Other Must-See Items At Cisco Live 2014


Happy 25th, Cisco Live

Cisco Live is turning 25.

The networking giant's largest event of the year kicks off next week in San Francisco, and this year marks its 25th anniversary. And, according to Cisco Chief Marketing Officer Blair Christie, Cisco Live 2014 is already Cisco's largest ever, pulling in 22,000 live attendees and more than 200,000 on the web -- a new record for each.

While Christie said roughly 80 percent of Cisco Live attendees will be Cisco customers, a solid showing of Cisco vendor and solution provider partners also are expected to show up for the fun.

To give us a taste of what's to come, Christie spoke with CRN this week about some must-see items that attendees won't want to miss. Take a look.
