I’m really excited about today’s small business announcement. Not just because of the initial praise that we’ve received but because our new offerings will make it even easier for our customers and partners to benefit from Cisco technologies and services.
We’ve expanded our services coverage across our entire small business portfolio to enable partners to provide customers with our 3-year peace-of-mind service. We’ve also expanded and simplified our switching portfolio to allow our partners to be even more prescriptive in building a network that meets their customer needs today and allow for easy expansion in the future. And, with three new desktop IP phones, our portfolio of HD voice products has become both more affordable and more advanced.
Two new software applications have also been added to the mix. An advanced video monitoring application that helps customers protect their businesses through an easy-to-use video surveillance system. And, the Office Manager application to help simplify the configuration of our Smart Business Communication System.
To sum it all up, Cisco is simply continuing to strengthen its commitment to the small business market, continuing to help partners reach small business customers, and enhancing the whole package by offering innovative services and support programs.
Now, more than ever, small businesses are working hard to increase their efficiency, productivity, and profitability. By delivering innovative new technology and services, Cisco is stepping up to help our small business customers meet and exceed their goals.
