Election, Conventions and Cisco Compact Switches

October 29, 2012 - 0 Comments

The US presidential race is in dead heat. The two candidates, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, are literally tied in the latest polls. Many factors will contribute to the outcome of this election, including use of technology and social media.  Did you know that at the at the Republican National Convention and the Democratic National Convention, Cisco communications, collaboration and networking infrastructure solutions played a major role to connect attendees and supporters across the country and around the globe?

Cisco Catalyst LAN and compact switches, highlighted above in the purple circle, are used not only in political conventions, but also in many other civil events and industries such as retail and hospitality. With its small size (8 and 12 ports), a Cisco compact switch can carry the power of the Cisco Catalyst Switch Series outside the wiring closet and provide a flexible and secure choice to extend the network reach with impressive performance.

If you take an ocean cruise trip, you might find Cisco compact switches on board. If you visit a research institute, you might see Cisco compact switches connecting desk islands and users. Or when you stop by a convenience store or a big box retailer, you might find Cisco compact switches there to support their business needs. Small switches, big global footprint. You’ll find Cisco compact switches in many places.

Next time when you visit a corner store to pick up something or vote for the next US president, look to see if you can spot a Cisco compact switch. Join us at the NRF Annual Convention & Expo, retail’s BIG Show, in January 2013 to test drive a Cisco compact switch and other Cisco networking solutions.
