At Cisco, we have a passion for making amazing things happen. Now Apple and Cisco have done amazing things in the ten months since we announced our partnership. End users are getting a terrific new mobile experience. We’re also making it simpler for IT to give employees powerful new collaboration tools and the best network performance possible.

Of course, making business mobility simple is a lot of hard work. Teams at Apple and Cisco have focused their efforts on creating a seamless, secure, and easy-to-use mobile experience that will change the way you work. These solutions are in beta today and include optimized Wi-Fi roaming, app prioritization, and a seamless voice and collaboration experience.

To help you bring these capabilities to life, Cisco is rolling out several new services this fall, so organizations and end users can get even more from their Apple and Cisco solutions. Customers trust Cisco Services and our certified partners to understand their unique business goals and help them get the best results from technology, especially as the quantity and diversity of devices, apps and data make connecting and managing it all more challenging. Our extensive service portfolio means we can provide whatever level of assistance you want.

For example, Cisco Solution Support gives you centralized support for both Apple and Cisco technology, with experts who are your primary point of contact and own your case from first call to case closed. Cisco Solution Support works in partnership with your AppleCare for Enterprise coverage so we can effectively manage support among your Apple and Cisco teams to best resolve your case.

To help you deploy a wireless network that is optimized to support iOS devices, Cisco also offers Wi-Fi assessment, planning, design, implementation and validation services. We’ll help you prepare to scale and quickly turn up your network to drive a better, more productive end-user experience.

You can also rely on our end-to-end expertise to support your infrastructure securely. We continuously innovate new services, software processes, and strategic partnerships to keep your business humming. Stay tuned for more details about our new services and how they can help you make the most of your mobile and collaboration experience.
