There’s been a lot of buzz around our recent Cisco Unified Access Solution announcement. We understand there is also some confusion around what’s what, what’s required for Unified Access, and what the impact will be on IT.

In true Mythbuster fashion, let’s all discover why no myth is safe. Let’s review what we’ve covered in this blog series so far:

Now for our final myth to wrap up to series:

Myth 5: Efforts should focus on enabling and securing wireless, wired is dead.

PARTIALLY TRUE. It is true that wireless is being adopted at a rapid pace and IT must be conscious of this growth. However, there are many organizations that still rely on their wired infrastructure to support day-to-day activities. As pointed out in the recent Cisco Work Your Way Global Study 79% of end user respondents said they use a wired connection at work. In addition, organizations are also finding new ways to leverage the wired infrastructure to support devices such as security cameras, access systems and other non-traditional end devices. The increase in devices, both wired and wireless, are driving IT to find ways to unify and simplify how operations and the infrastructure support all devices. Cisco Unified Access does just that. It allows IT to meet this challenge by delivering common functionality across the wired and wireless network, including:

Combined, Cisco Unified Access enables IT to prioritize traffic, deploy services and effectively secure the network across both the wired and wireless infrastructure.
