SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) -  Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO)

What: On April 27, 2010, Cisco will host a live and interactive IPTV broadcast to describe how wireless networks are evolving to provide a Borderless Mobility experience for organizations and their users. Executives from Cisco, along with Portland State University (PSU), will talk about the challenges facing IT organizations as the wireless network becomes increasingly mission-critical.

With the proliferation of new mobile devices entering the network and an increasing user demand for anytime, anywhere access to critical business applications, IT departments are tasked with making the wireless LAN as reliable and high-performing as the wired network. Three obstacles have made it challenging for IT to accomplish this: limited wireless spectrum, increased interference from such equipment as cordless phones, microwave ovens and RF jammers, and a lack of wireless expertise and training.

In this webcast, Cisco and PSU will discuss the importance of the wireless network foundation to enabling a Borderless Mobility experience, and PSU will describe how its Cisco Unified Wireless Network is delivering a self-healing, self-optimized approach to meeting the growing demands of the university's users. The broadcast will highlight the following topics:

  • Growing challenges within wireless environments
  • The benefits of a Borderless Networks architecture and its approach to connecting anyone to anything, anywhere, and anytime.
  • The role of spectrum intelligence and analysis in overcoming RF obstacles and ensuring a Borderless Mobility experience
  • How Portland State University is using Cisco's Unified Wireless Network to meet the increasing mobility demands of its users.
  • Interactive Q&A

Who: Ray Smets, vice president and general manager, Wireless Networking Business Unit, Cisco; David Stiff, product marketing manager, Cisco; and Clayton Daffron, Network Architect and Team Manager, Portland State University.

When: April 27, 2010, 8:00-9:00 a.m. Pacific Time (16:00-17:00 UCT)
