Cisco Live Recap with Mack Nethkin – Podcast #014

by | Jul 9, 2019 | Podcast

It’s time to LVtMCEaaS (Live Vicariously through Mack’s Conference Experience as a Service).

Pull on those board shorts, slather some zinc on your nose, and get ready to hang ten (ethernet ports) as we invite special guest, Network Consultant Mack Nethkin, to the Data Center Therapy studios to debrief last month’s Cisco Live conference in sunny San Diego.

Yette and Mack dive into the developments and products announced at last month’s event, including:

  • The changes to Cisco certifications and when you’ll need to schedule your exams to beat those impending change dates.
  • The new switches and networking infrastructures that replaces your old Cisco favorites like the 2960, 3750, and 3850 Catalyst switches.
  • How StealthWatch can act as a new layer of your “Defense in Depth” network security strategy given the BYOD-enabled world we suddenly find ourselves in.

They also discuss ransomware and its very recent + relevant impact on local governments, the new “Network as a Sensor” paradigm in network infrastructure, and a new edition of “Never Seen that Before!” straight from the trade show floor that you are not going to want to miss.

Please join us, and as always: like, comment, and let us know what you’d like to hear in upcoming episodes!
