Over 10,500 people joined live virtually among them I was one, and over 23,000 people were present physically at Nevada, Las Vegas. Cisco CEO John Cambers opened the Cisco Live with the announcement of Cisco Cius, Cisco Systems tablet device basically targeted at Enterprises to enjoy and access the full range of Cisco collaboration and communication applications including HD video.
