How Cisco Upgraded Its Wireless Infrastructure
How Cisco Upgraded Its Wireless Infrastructure
Cisco
The challenge for Cisco IT was to continue providing a global wireless LAN that could serve as a primary access medium and deliver more bandwith and coverage to more users, while satisfying the company's business requirements. The next-generation WLAN would also need to provide native support for wireless video and voice, with high levels of accessibility, availability and security to reduce service-impacting incidents. 
Testing Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solutions
Testing Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solutions
Gambit Communications
Cisco provides many applications as a part of this solution; Hosted Collaboration Fulfillment-Mediation (HCM-F), Cisco Prime Collaboration Assurance, Cisco Unified Call Manage(CUCM), Cisco Unified Presence(CUP), Cisco Unity Connection(CUCxN), Cisco Unified Operation Manager (CUOM), and Cisco Prime License Manager. There are many communications technologies linking the different components: SOAP, REST, XML, SNMP, Cisco IOS, LDAP, VOIP, Telnet and SSH. They all need to be verified for various combinations of scenarios, features and scalability. That is a huge task which would need many different tools to be used and configured. Instead Cisco decided to use one tool that can provide all the test environments they need, MIMIC Web and SNMP Simulator.

Cisco Connected Grid Network Management System
Cisco
Cisco Connected Grid Network Management System helps utilities transform their operations (like smart metering, distribution automation, and substations) for the smart grid with unified network management. With this system, utility operations share a converged IP-based communications network, and thus manage millions of grid endpoint devicesCisco Connected Grid Network Management System is a software platform that helps to enable a clear separation between communications network management and utility operational applications. These include Distribution Management System (DMS), Outage Management System (OMS), and Meter Data Management (MDM).You can use this software platform to manage a multiservice network and security infrastructure for the smart grid, including smart metering or advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), distribution automation, distributed intelligence, and substation automation. It is a highly secure, scalable, modular software platform with a pluggable architecture. This helps enable network connectivity to a multivendor ecosystem of legacy and next-generation power grid devices.Connected Grid Network Management System provides highly secure, fully automated commissioning for Cisco Connected Grid 1000 Series Routers and Cisco IPv6 RF Mesh-Enabled Smart Meters (an ecosystem partner device) and RF Mesh Range extenders (also an ecosystem partner device). Other features include:- Geographic Information System (GIS) map-based, visualization, monitoring, troubleshooting, and alarm notifications- Group-based configuration management for field-area routers and smart meter endpoints- Rule-engine infrastructure for customizable threshold-based alarm processing and event generation- North-bound integration API for transparent integration with utility head-end and operational systems- High availability and disaster recovery
