Cisco Live 2023 Recap

the cisco live 2023 logo. Cisco is written in formal, blue text and live is stylised in larger, more informal font with an exclamation mark at ehe end.

That's a wrap for the 2023 edition of Cisco Live in Melbourne.  

To everyone we met at our Aussie Convenience Store, thanks for stopping by!

The front banner says "Aussie Broadband convenience store" and there is a small, flag-like banner above that says "checkout". 2 people are behind the counter, and they are speaking to one person in front of the counter.

We love our local convenience stores. They're always there when you need them, you know where to find what you're looking for, and you're always served with a smile. That's the experience every business should have when implementing and managing their tech.  

So, in designing our booth for Cisco’s World of Solutions display, we decided to evoke Australia's best customer experience.

Two people, one wearing an Aussie Broadband shirt, arew staring at a sign meant to resemble a vending machine. Aussie Broadband Enterprise Technology offerings are listed on graphics of cans on the sign. "Network, add more control and efficiency", and "Mobile and Voice: reliable communication and collaboration".

The store showcased our enterprise solutions, from our off-the-shelf offerings (see what we did there) to fully customisable solutions.  

On display at the checkout was Carbon, our enterprise self-service portal. Carbon makes provisioning and managing your organisation's IT network just as convenient as picking up your favourite snack from the local shop.

Speaking of snacks, we couldn't let guests leave without offering them an iconic Aussie staple. There were Caramello Koalas, Barbeque shapes and wagon wheels on offer.

Our scratch-and-win competition, with awesome Aussie Merch on offer, drew a crowd. Well done to the winners! We loved seeing those pops of green throughout the conference.

And big congratulations to Vikramjit M, who took home the grand prize: 12 months of free internet!

It displays a "Scratch to win" competition, with a small sign saying "scratch to win". Either side of the sign are card holders containing scracties that say scratch to win and card holders that contain scratch cards. To the right is a tub that contains the scratchers contestants use to scratch the card and reveal their prize.

Surrounding our Aussie Broadband booth was a hive of innovation, inspiration and exciting tech displays from Cisco and its partners. This year's themes were Connection, Security, Observability and Sustainability.

Cisco Live 2023:  An image of a trade show, at the centre of the image is a blue carpet, and along either side of the carpet are various trade show booths. Above the booths is are illuminated letters that spell out "CISCO".

We got inspiration from industry leaders in the Vision for the Future keynote and saw the latest tech come to life in electrifying product showcases.

There are six Aussie Broadband staff members behind the counter, and three event attendees in front of the counter.

We're particularly excited about the planned updates to Cisco's Webex, our video meeting platform. With teams scattered across all corners of Australia, new features that make virtual meeting attendees feel like they're in the room will be a game-changer for productivity! 

For all who attended, we hope you had as much fun as we did. We can't wait to do it all again next year.
