Cisco GSX 2018: What to Expect at this Year’s FY19 Conference

As the world leader in Information Technology (IT) and networking, Cisco is a vast operation that expands across the globe.  Every year, all of Cisco’s sales talent converges together at one of the biggest events in the industry, known as the Cisco Global Sales Experience or GSX. This three day live conference includes approximately 20,000 of its sales team members from all over the world. 

  • Where is GSX FY19 taking place? Las Vegas, Nevada
  • What are the dates? Monday, August 20th, to Wednesday, August 22nd.

What’s new at Cisco GSX in 2018?

At Vyopta, we are excited to have been invited to present and demonstrate our Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C) Performance Management solution at GSX for the first time.  Our booth can be found in the Cisco Hub zone partner showcase. The Hub zone provides an ultra-collaborative section of the conference meant to allow Cisco solution partners to educate Cisco’s sales organization about the problems we solve, use cases that we support and the value we can deliver to customers with our advanced UC&C solutions. In this area, Cisco fosters greater business development, idea sharing to improve solution value offered to customers, customer success stories and more. Because the partner showcase is the only area of the event that is not restricted to Cisco staff, the Hub allows Cisco representatives to engage with key partners that serve their industry and can offer diverse stakeholder positions and perspectives.

The Hub Zone also offers short collaborative TED talks style sessions and standard booth setups where Cisco sellers can talk to its technology partners. In particular, the Hub will allow Cisco to get a sneak peek of all the new product developments we have here at Vyopta that we have saved specifically for this big event.

What to Look Out for from Vyopta at the Event

If you come by to check out our booth at the conference, expect to hear about two main product initiatives that we’re excited about in 2018:

Workspace Insights 
In the rapidly growing team collaboration market, Cisco customers can use Vyopta’s UC Workspace Insights to attain greater value from their investments in Cisco collaboration room products, such as Webex Room Kits. Large enterprises around the world — in both private and public sectors — are increasing their investments in collaboration technologies to drive greater team collaboration and ensure business agility and performance.  With Vyopta’s UC Workspace Insights, Cisco customers can now:

  • Optimize the use of collaboration meeting space
  • Standardize technologies that improve the user experience
  • Reduce costs (or avoid costs) in real estate

You’ll have the chance to check out Workspace Insights – Vyopta’s newest product that has received great reviews from customers around the world. Come by our booth for an in-person demo and hear from our UC experts about how this solution can improve the value achieved from Cisco collaboration products.

New advanced UC Monitoring
Set to launch in October, Vyopta’s next big product release will feature a completely new platform that better supports troubleshooting (quality issues, system outages) and mean-time-to-resolution times to reduce the costs of downtime and troubleshooting for voice and video communications systems. Ever wish you could dial back the clock to figure out what went wrong with a call?  Now you can. Come by the booth to learn more about our latest innovation in call monitoring and learn how it can support your customer needs across multi-vendor communications systems.
