Today’s Solution for Continuous Mobility

The Cisco vision of the mobile network of the future is one that continuously adapts, enabling people to connect and communicate how, when, and where they need to, without relying on pre-defined fixed infrastructure. This is exemplified by the Cisco Mobile Ready Net solution architecture.

In a split-second world where the stakes can be extremely high, mobile users are working beyond the boundaries of traditional networks. People who perform vital functions like police officers, first responders and firefighters, defense and military personnel managing disaster recovery or running planes, trains or ships must be able to connect, collaborate and share information in any format, from anywhere at anytime with no stopping to set-up a network.

The 5900 Series Embedded Services Routers fit perfectly into this solution by providing highly secure data, voice, and video communications to stationary and mobile network nodes across wired and wireless links. That is why it is a pleasure to announce updates to the 5940 Embedded Services Router and the launch of the 5915 Embedded Services Router today!

Watch below as Brad Boston, senior vice president, Cisco Global Government Solutions Group discusses the enhancements and launch and be sure to visit http://www.cisco.com/go/5900 for additional information!

Help Customers Embrace Change with New Borderless Networks ROI Benefits Calculator

Your customers want all the benefits that borderless networks have to offer; things like working from home, VPN access anywhere, and secure network access via any device. But how do you best walk customers through the costs, benefits, IT staff requirements, ROI, and the dizzying array of considerations around a sizable IT upgrade?

With a series of questions, scenarios, and analysis, the new Borderless Networks ROI Benefits Calculator is a free tool that helps partners analyze customers’ IT costs and needs—whether it’s a future network deployment or a post-deployment ROI analysis.

By plugging data into the calculator, you receive a tangible list of benefits that a customer would see from upgrading their infrastructure (like reductions in help desk costs, increases in end user productivity, or energy savings).

Cisco tapped independent technology and market research company Forrester Research to create the calculator. Forrester gathered data from its research on Cisco Borderless Networks and the market in general, interviewed Cisco marketing and sales personnel, spoke with organizations offering solutions, and conducted a survey of 121 IT network execs.

How do I get access to the calculator?

Digital Britain: BIG things are happening

My wife was shopping online this past week. While she was watching the rich-media cat walk feature on asos.com, which is now the norm for clothing retailer websites, it occurred to me how things have changed. Moreover, how our expectations have dramatically evolved.

On a regular basis I hear friends, colleagues and business partners complain about the perceived speed of their internet connection – web pages not loading fast enough, unable to reach a particular website, or a poor user experience on Skype. Consumers are demanding more – more broadband speed, better applications and abundant availability.

Super Cool: See Who’s Hosting a WebEx Right Now via World Map

Ever wondered who’s on a WebEx? Here’s a look at global activity that’s refreshed every few minutes.

Click in and take a look. You will see the host’s location and how many people are participating in the meeting. Some people are even in a one-person meeting, which I imagine means they are recording content to share with others or post on their website.

WebEx Makes the World a Little Smaller

What I find amazing is how many people are video conferencing from very remote locations – really shows the power of the Internet and how it allows for collaboration no matter where you are!

If you use WebEx, you can see the power of the WebEx network. If you are hosting a WebEx event or have a recorded WebEx posted that’s public, let us know. Send us a tweet @WebExEvents and we’ll retweet your information to our network.

If you haven’t tried WebEx yet, you can get a free trial and download WebEx mobile free (you need an account if you want to host from a mobile; attending is free).

It was a evening like any other.  The Lone Admin walks into a his local watering hole to relax after a full day of battling issues and keeping his company’s network safe and secure.  He is known somewhat as a miracle worker, a conundrum wrapped in an enigma.  Even against the most sinister of network issues he is able to stand his ground and find resolution all by himself.  How does he do it?  None of his peers know.
