The VAR Guy writes why Cisco should attach its brand name to the Flip handheld video camera.

“During the Cisco Partner Velocity summit, one of the guest speakers raved about Cisco’s commitment to marketing. The same guest speaker raved about the Flip video camera’s simplicity. Then, the speaker made a stunning statement: ‘I had forgotten that Cisco owns the Flip.’ … As consumers prepare to buy a range of gadgets and gizmos this holiday season The VAR Guy wonders: Wouldn’t it be wise for Cisco to start promoting the fact that the company owns the Flip?”

Overlay Bandwidth: The Key To Telepresence Happiness
Network World

Johna Till Johnson writes about telepresence.

“Most telepresence adopters turn to service providers to obtain dedicated bandwidth. Why? Because telepresence requires a great deal of bandwidth; up to 6 Mbps per-screen, per-room. IT managers also see telepresence as a high-profile application. When a company has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to deliver a premium video conferencing solution often utilized by top executives, IT job security depends on delivering a high quality user experience. IT architects simply don’t want to take the chance that a critical telepresence session among executives, customers, and/or partners is interrupted because of issues on the data network. Despite increasing deployment of technologies such as WAN optimization and QoS, they simply aren’t willing to chance a network-related issue disrupting a telepresence session.”
