Cisco Live London – Don’t drink & config

(But if you must, use Opengear instead of driving to site..)

Opengear are regulars at Cisco Live events in the USA & Australia, but last week was our first time exhibiting in Europe.  As usual our little cellular out-of-band management devices were the big drawcard, as was the newly announced Lighthouse central management appliance.

We had a blast meeting customers both new and old, I even shook hands with the guy who raised the first support ticket I ever responded to back in 2008!  (Happy to report the issue was promptly resolved and he’s been a satisfied customer ever since.)

However the quote of the show has to go to a CCIE who probably best remains anonymous:

“I leave an ACM5004-G at all customer site network installs, it really helps for when I’ve been drinking.”

On that note, cheers from the EMEA team – thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth, and see you next year in Milan!
