At CiscoLive Cancun we are introducing a new addition to the 800 ISR family, the new 800M Series. What does the “M” stand for? The “M” stands for modular, as this is the first 800 series platform with pluggable modules that give flexibility in the field. Why do you need flexibility? The 800M is designed to operate in environments where 3G wireless is the primary mode of connectivity. For those of you with a cellphone, you are no doubt familiar with the large number of different service providers and 3G technologies. When designing the 800M we wanted to give our customers the ability to connect to any service provider in order to avoid lock-in, lower costs and improve redundancy. The modular platform enables customers to choose from serial and cellular connectivity without having to replace the chassis, which can be a challenge with fixed platforms. Read More »

If you have been following Cisco Blogs, attending CiscoLive, or reading industry publications like Network World, you’ve probably heard about Cisco’s Intelligent WAN or IWAN solution. For those of you that haven’t been in the loop, have more questions, or are just plain curious about the Intelligent WAN, we have a short webinar series kicking off on the 6th of November at 10am PST. We will cover the important building blocks for architecting your hybrid WAN infrastructure including:
- Defining the Hybrid WAN
- In-depth technical analysis of Cisco’s Hybrid WAN Solution: IWAN
- How IWAN can help to lower your IT costs
If you belong to an IT organization that is centralizing applications in the public or private cloud to gain efficiencies or are migrating the Internet edge in your branch offices to take advantage of software as a service (SaaS) applications, then make sure you attend this live 60-minute webcast, the first of a four-part series. We will show you how a hybrid WAN architecture can help you deliver a consistently high-quality end-user experience while actually reducing your WAN operating costs.
Still not sure if IWAN is for you? Consider these other trends that might be happening in your enterprise network today that could end up causing many sleepless nights in the future:
- Mobile devices continue to proliferate, and high-bandwidth applications such as video are becoming more and more commonplace, putting pressure on the WAN.
- According to Nemertes, most organizations’ WAN budgets will remain flat or decline in 2015, meaning that adding bandwidth is often not an option.
