Turning Data into Value is the heart of the Internet of Everything. Traditional models of computing, storing and transporting data are being disrupted in order to efficiently and effectively realize this potential. "Cloud Computing" has become a top technical initiative for almost every organization, but there are use cases that don't allow for this model of operation. Fast Lane's Cisco Fog Computing Solutions for SEs provides engineers with a comprehensive look at how Cisco's Fog Computing Solutions provide a unique approach to solving a wide range of business problems, enabling organizations in a variety of sectors to achieve business outcomes never before imagined. Attendees will receive an introduction to the business problems that Cisco Fog Computing Solutions solve, a tour of the related portfolio, an understanding of how Fog Computing Solutions are designed and a motivating review of a wide range of powerful use cases. Finally, SEs will develop an understanding of how to lead customers in Fog Compute discussions, as well as learn how to demonstrate Cisco's underlying portfolio in various use cases.

Attendees should have a professional understanding of Cisco route and switch technology.
