Cisco ET&I Takes on Las Vegas at Cisco Live 2022


Cisco’s Emerging Technologies & Incubation (ET&I) team is excited to share several announcements of our evolution along with our upcoming participation in this year’s Cisco Live US, which is taking place June 12 – 16, 2022 in Las Vegas.

ET&I is midst an evolution that is driving hyper focus to two key investment areas across application modernization and edge native. Modern distributed applications are built using APIs and Services from any provider (internal, SaaS, cloud) and can be deployed anywhere, including on-premises, at the edge, or in the public cloud.

Edge is of particular interest as it is the new battleground for data and applications, where the current cloud infrastructure may either induce too much latency or may not be economically feasible for all edge scenarios. It’s like one size does not fit all.

What this means is that ET&I will be targeted in how we identify Cisco’s Bold Bets for the future to deliver even greater user experiences and shorten the time to value for our customers, developers, and partners.

From Ideation to Driving Rapid Product Adoption

As part of our innovation journey over the last two years in ET&I, we have ideated, validated with Design Partners, and incubated several hundred ideas. We are excited to announce that because of our team’s dedication and the commitment of our customers and design partners, we have successfully taken two new Cloud Native products to market spanning across Full Stack Observability, Service Mesh Management, and Secure Application Cloud as free offerings. These products are available for you to try today!

  1. Calisti (Service Mesh Manager)
  2. Panoptica (Secure Application Cloud)

Bold Bets is Getting Bolder

This year, Bold Bets will be bringing our Cisco partners along in our innovation journey. As part of the annual Partner Innovation Challenge, we are introducing a new Bold Bets prize. This new category of the Challenge is not only a unique opportunity for partners to win a cash prize but it’s a chance to bring their biggest ideas to life with Cisco.

We are more specifically interested in big ideas that address modern applications connectivity, security, observability, and edge deployment. If you are a Cisco partner and have a new business idea, wait no more, and submit your Bold Bets!
