Cisco Americas Networkhttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/rss/Recent AnnouncementsSun, 18 Nov 2018 10:57:02 -0800Bell offers Virtual Network Services to enterprise clients shifting to cloud based applications http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9691Bell launched its new Virtual Network Services (VNS) platform Oct. 18, which the company says will give business and enterprise customers “on demand network functions,” such as security and routing, by deploying software so clients can get rid of chunky hardware that performs similar functions. The announcement was made during the Cisco Connect event in Toronto, where the telecom provider announced the first virtual network function on the VNS platform will be a managed software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) that will be powered by Cisco Viptela.2018-10-18http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9691/ Cisco Live 2018: Why Security Is a Concern in Digital Transformation Projects http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9073As organizations adopt new technologies to change their business plans, IT security has to be top of mind.2018-07-05http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9073/ Cisco Canada Welcomes Toronto Public Library to Cisco Networking Academyhttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8972In celebration of Toronto Digital Literacy Day, Cisco Canada is proud to officially welcome the Toronto Public Library to its groundbreaking Cisco Networking Academy program.2018-05-31http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8972/ Humber and Cisco Join Forces to Enhance Technology-Driven Educationhttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8915Initiative will link Innovation Centres, showcase education industry leadership and drive hands-on experimentation 2018-05-08http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8915/ Partnering for the Future of Canadahttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8895President of Cisco Canada, Rola Dagher, delves into the ways in which Cisco Canada partners to develop Canada's next generation and push the frontiers of knowledge. 2018-04-26http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8895/ Cream Rises to the Tophttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8883Noosa prides themselves on making ‘not just any yoghurt’. They stand out in the dairy aisle by bringing the highest quality ingredients and recipes to the shelves. But Noosa knew that to produce the best product, they needed the best processes and the best equipment. So in 2015, they invested five million in a plant upgrade. It paid off.

Improving Quality of Life for Citizens in Latin Americahttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8886People are moving to cities all over the world at the rate of 10,000 people per hour. By 2050, 66% of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas, stressing aging infrastructures and already crowded areas. Sufficient fresh water is likely to be an issue in many growing cities, as is efficient transportation. Government leaders are preparing for this influx by thinking about how to make their quickly expanding towns and cities as pleasant and safe as possible. And they are using technology to make it happen. 2018-04-23http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8886/ Cisco and the University of Waterloo partner to advance 5G technologyhttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8817The collaboration has created a Cisco Research Chair in 5G systems, a position dedicated to exploring ways to improve wireless technology.2018-04-09http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8817/ TakingITGlobal Awarded $2.5 Million Government of Canada CanCode Funding to Create Programs Aimed at Nurturing IT Skills in Indigenous Communities and Underserved Regionshttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8806Code to Learn and Create to Learn programs will empower students and educators with crucial coding and digital skills 2018-04-04http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8806/ Cisco Launches Inaugural Tech4Good Hockey Tournament in Support of Groundbreaking Connected North Technology Programhttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8760Bryan Trottier and top NHL alumni join forces with Cisco and partners to raise funds for virtual education and mental health and wellness services in Canada’s remote Indigenous communities2018-03-13http://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8760/ Cisco Works with Microsoft to Bring Azure Stack to Government Customershttp://americas.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8734Microsoft Azure Stack is now being integrated with Azure Government, allowing partners including Cisco to offer the solution to government customers.

The question is, what if they are not quick enough? The result could be slower time to patient treatment, an unprepared and chaotic hospital, and most importantly the loss of patient lives.
