Cisco will lead SDN and win IT, Chambers says

Stephen Lawson | May 21, 2014
The company's sweeping architectures will beat generic hardware, Chambers said.

Chambers also highlighted a hardware introduction Cisco made on Monday, demonstrating the DX80 videoconferencing system. Remarkably like larger versions of the cancelled Cius tablet, the DX line of devices are essentially large-screen Android tablets designed for use on one employee's desk or shared around an office. Typical selling prices of the DX 80, which has a 23-inch touchscreen, will be around US$2,000, he said. The companion DX 70 has a 14-inch touchscreen and a list price of about $1,000.

The DX80 was part of a demonstration of Cisco technologies in a fictional rail system, where sensors, cameras and small routers in cars and alongside tracks collect data for use in managing the railroad. The DX80 was used to assist a ticket buyer via a video kiosk in a station.
