Mini-Series Cisco Live 2015 (7): Whisper Suites

I recently got an MTE-Request (see earlier post) from a customer – in the description the customer mentioned, that he would like to meet with me to discuss “some” Wireless-Topics.
He also requested that I would organize some Product-Managers and/or Technical Marketing Engineers to join the meeting, as he would like get in direct touch with these folks.

The MTE-Process is not prepared to accommodate such requests.

However, I still could help this customer.
