Each year, Cisco Live brings together experts, speakers and technology to showcase the best of what the Silicon Valley-based technology company has to offer.
This year's event is completely digital and features over 90 live and on-demand demos. It can be a lot to take in, so we've curated a list of can't miss Cisco Live 2021 sessions, as determined by some of our WWT experts.
To help you get the most out of these sessions, we've also paired each of our can't miss sessions with related articles, e-books, videos or community resources that can help you throughout the conference.
Of course, for all your Cisco Live questions and inquiries, head over to our Cisco Live Coverage Community to engage with WWT experts and tap into our deep portfolio of Cisco labs, demos and trainings.
