It is finally Friday!

It has been another long week here for our team. Productive as usual, but long nonetheless. How was your week?

The Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs will now meet Monday night in Los Angeles instead of Mexico City. It is a shame, but the game will pit two great teams that are currently 9-1. The Tennis and Golf Tours are winding down for the year. It has been a long year, but the start is just a couple of months away in January.

Lebron James and our Los Angeles Lakers continue to improve in the intense Western Conference, but on the down-low, The Los Angeles Clippers are 9-5 and in 4th place.

Our local ski/snowboard season is now under weigh in Southern California and Mammoth Mountain, as well as some areas in Colorado and Utah. Any ski trip planned? We sure hope to get up there soon!

News: Our team will be at Cisco Live in Cancun the first week of December! We will have an area in the World of Solutions. If you are planning on being there, please stop by and say Hola!

We will be showing off our new RV160 and RV260 VPN Models, the new 250 and 350/350X Switch Models, as well as the new WAP581 and WAP125 that now have an Umbrella integration. Of course we will be showing Cisco FindIT Networking platform!

We will have folks who speak Espanol in the booth with us so we can speak with everyone.


We cannot wait for the show. We are already setting up meetings, dinners and other activities now. World-famous Juanes headlines the Customer Appreciation Event on Friday! I am sure Friday night will be a night to remember.

As you may have heard, I launched five new Cisco RV Series Models last month. There is a product blog I did while back that covers these awesome products, but I thought I would highlight one of them. The Cisco RV260W Wireless-AC VPN Router is a dynamic performer that can be deployed in a variety of scenarios. Like all of our Cisco Small Business networking products, it is purpose-built for it’s market, Small Business. A perfect choice for any home office, retail, market, restaurant, coffee house, surfshop, branch, or doctor’s office. I am sure we can think of another 20 businesses and deployments this unit fits well!

Cisco RV260W Wireless-AC VPN Router

The RV260W offers a combination SFP/Ethernet WAN, eight port switch, VPN options for secure access, firewall, USB LTE Failover, one year of web filtering, support for remote, low-touch deployment, and FindIT support. Like all of our Cisco Small Business product, it has a standard Limited Lifetime Warranty, free software/firmware upgrades, and support community access, all included.

Yes this is an all-in-one model. It’s native 3×3 11ac wave 2 wireless access point provides lightning quick wireless performance and range. This is not your old kind of router that you purchased ten years ago.

This model, like the rest of the five new models, offers a new dual-core processor, which gives unprecedented performance in our portfolio.This unit boots up in seconds, the new, improved User Interface is easy to use, more logical for a better user experience, and has set-up wizards to help the configuration process along quicker.

Feedback so far has been amazing and we are optimistic for the upcoming months! As usual it will be another fun ride with us and our products!
