Make Your ‘Play’ in the BYOD Revolution–Your Customers Will Thank You

July 17, 2012 at 8:08 am PST

Everybody’s doing it. Your colleagues. Your customers. Maybe even you. But how can you profit from the BYOD midmarket revolution? For those not familiar with the acronym, that’s “Bring Your Own Device”—or, as we like to call it, the BYOD “Your Way” experience.

But just how big is the opportunity for partners? Already, more than one third of the midmarket IT budget is dedicated to wireless LANs. And by 2014, 90 percent of organizations will allow personal devices for work use. So is there any doubt? Your customers need your help now to safely, affordably, and securely manage this explosion.

With Cisco, it’s easy. We just introduced a great partner value proposition in the form of our new Cisco Midmarket Mobility solution.

Cisco announces new “teleworker” wireless solutions – working from home just got a whole lot easier

When Cisco conducted an industry survey a few months back, the research revealed that 61% of employees believe they don’t need to be in an office to be productive – and two-thirds of employees place a higher value on workplace flexibility than salary. Attitudes toward working remotely have certainly shifted over recent years, as working from home is no longer seen as a privilege – it’s expected.

But for just about any employee who has ever needed to work from home, getting a home office wireless network up and running can be time consuming, even if you already have an existing home network. By the time you change network profiles, start VPN clients, and deal with security concerns, not to mention time spent on the phone with the corporate IT helpdesk, you can easily spend a good chunk of your day setting up and configuring your wireless network.

But once again, Cisco can help.

Cisco announced today new OfficeExtend wireless solutions designed toward making the whole teleworking process painless for both the remote worker and the IT manager back at the corporate office. With the new OfficeExtend wireless solutions from Cisco, not only can you have home network profiles for personal use, but as an additional feature, the very same corporate WLAN profiles and security that you using at the office can now be replicated at home.  And better yet, the new wireless solutions require no intervention from end users by allowing IT departments to remotely manage home access points alongside the rest of their corporate infrastructure.   Read More »
