Meet the Authors Event - Leveraging SBCs to Empower a Changing World of Collaboration

(Live event – Tuesday, 16th, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific / 1:00 p.m. Eastern / 7:00 p.m. Paris)

This event had place on Tuesday 16th, February 2020 at 10am PST 

The need for virtual collaboration across individuals, teams, organizations, and industries has been significantly changed with the global challenges presented in 2020. The industry now demands rapid adoption of cloud services and more flexible integrations across disparate services and geographies.

In this session, Cisco Press authors and collaboration experts address how border controllers play a key role in enabling the on-premise to cloud migration and consumption of collaboration technologies. They provide a review of new Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE) features, and some insight into how Session Border Controllers (SBCs) are enabling cloud integrations and improving collaboration security.

Join the solution experts, who have a combined total of over 70 years of experience designing or supporting complex enterprise collaboration deployments. In addition, the authors will revisit a selection of topics that were covered in the book Understanding Session Border Controllers, and review how the concepts remain important and relevant in a changing world.

This event provides an opportunity to interact with the authors in real-time and learn more about them, their story, the story behind their publications, and how they became renowned experts.
