Cisco executives have become fond of talking about the future of networking as an infrastructure that facilitates the delivery of any digital content to any device at any time users wish to access it.
The company took a step forward in that direction this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where Cisco announced the Videoscape platform, a Linux-powered technology portfolio that will deliver video content through set-top boxes, and, eventually, to tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices. Enterprise Networking Today has the story.
For years, Cisco CEO John Chambers has been saying that users should be able to get any content, on any device, at any time. It’s a vision that Cisco is expanding this week with the announcement of its new Videoscape platform at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The Videoscape platform is an effort to build out a network video delivery platform using IP that can work across multiple devices. The technology is based on assets that Cisco acquired last August, and uses Linux as its base operating system.
