I’m going to my first Cisco Live! And it’s in the US!

I have booked my sessions which was a challenge. There are so man good sessions to
choose from. I tried to get a balance of sessions I have use for now, sessions that
could be useful in a longer perspective and sessions that have speakers that I really
want to meet.

My schedule turned out to be a combination of network design, multicast and routing
protocols and a few sessions on things like overlay networks. Here is my schedule.


8.00 – 9.30 BRKDCT-1408 Introduction to Overlay Networks and Use Cases
10.00 – 12.00 BKRCRT-2000 Hardcore IPv6 Routing – No Fear

    And the key notes are the only sessions I have scheduled in common with you. See in in Fish’s and Pete’s session!

    I usually try to get to the “advanced” sessions (3xxx) at the show. Then catch the rest on 365.

    Have you thought about doing a meet the engineer?

      Cool Pablo.

      Yes, I am considering doing a MTE if I can do one on the ME3600/3800 platform.

      That’s cool Richard.

      This is my first CL so I don’t have any experience with that. Do you get a number for the waiting list or just that you are on the waiting list? Which class are you looking to get in to? I could try to poke around on the status of it.

        I’m hoping to get into ucs architecture overview and I can’t remember the name but it is essentially on ucs East West migrations optimization. I’m just on the waiting list you put on your schedule. I’m told waiting around at the door may get you in. So schedule something else and wait at the one you want to get into.
