Christian will be speaking on Virtual Environments and Their Impact on the Network

Where: Cisco Systems 2 in Training Center Room 1

When: On Sept 6th at noon SLT.

This is a first in a series of TechChats to be held by Cisco in Second Life. Second Life TechChats are highly interactive virtual events for the technical professional focusing on networking solutions, and the best practices for deploying and managing the latest technologies.

By attending the Sept 6th TechChat one will:

  • Gain a better understanding of the network traffic impact of virtual worlds like Second Life and their network security implications.

  • Participate in a walk through on how virtual worlds, specifically Second Life, works on a network and what network administrators should do to prepare for virtual environments on their corporate network as far as bandwidth, QoS and security are concerned.

From the Cisco virtual bog.

We encourage you to experiment with these environments, starting with Cisco’s virtual campus in Second Life, a virtual environment created by a San Francisco startup Linden Lab. Second Life uses geographic bookmarks, called ‘landmarks’, which can directly teleport you to a location in Second Life. If you have Second Life installed, click here to be taken to our virtual campus. Don’t be surprised if you see a number of other people there, as we have virtual events regularly such as our recent Networkers at Cisco Live! Be sure to check our upcoming event boards around the virtual campus and join us!

Last but not least, a note about the authors of the blog. We are the Networked Virtual Environments team within Cisco Technology Center, which is a group within Cisco chartered to look at new and emerging technologies as part of our Corporate Business Development organization. We are not a business unit shipping product, but rather a source of new technologies and ideas for Cisco. You’ll probably notice quickly that we wander far from the beaten path regularly, as is our charter. Source: A Warm Welcome
