Robbins On The Record

Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins spoke with CRN after launching the company's new 'Network Intuitive" platform which is aimed at redefining the network for the next 30 years.

This new network is the result of years of research and development by Cisco to reinvent networking for an age where network engineers managing hundreds of devices today will be expected to manage 1 million by 2020, said Robbins. He says the intuitive networking system anticipates actions, stops security threats and continues to evolve and learn.

Robbins says he "disagrees completely" that the Intuitive Network is a closed system, saying the API-driven architecture works with third party applications and leverages x86 compute.

Robbins also spoke about Cisco's commitment to its Unified Computing System (UCS) as well as what he is most "proud" as he approaches his two year anniversary as CEO on July 26.
