Small Business Update

Hello all,

Welcome to 2016.

I wanted to provide a quick update as we start the new year.

First off, if you did not know, we have a fantastic Small Business support community. There are sections for Routing, Switching, and of course Wireless. In each section you will find a repository of videos on demand on. You will have to register, but it is a quick process. Be sure to check out the knowledge base for our support documents. We also have our device emulators there on the community. The Small Business Support Community Team has been hard at work at improving the already great community, stay tuned for continued improvements.

Now for the good stuff. Yes I saved the best for last…

We have some new products coming up. We have new routers: four new models with web filtering, a VDSL2/Ethernet Wireless AC model, an ADSL2+/Ethernet Wireless-N model, a whole host of new Wireless Access points including a new outdoor model, and a new high-end 500 Series Indoor model.

New switching models include 250 and 350 PoE models adding a whopping sixteen new models.

These new Cisco Small Business products will help you to connect to more, do more for your business, and your business outcomes. Remember, these new models work the best when integrated with other Cisco Small Business models. We have the best support team in the industry. But I’ll save that for another day.

Thanks for spending a few minutes with us.

Marc and Team.

Mobility IQ Provides Real Time Analytics at MWC 2015

Using a mobile tabletAs we begin our preparations for Mobile World Congress 2016 (hard to believe), I thought it would be fun to reflect on this year’s show. Cisco worked with the GSMA and the Fira again this year to deliver a carrier-grade Wi-Fi network to 93,000 attendees. After winning last year’s WBA Wi-Fi Industry Award for Most Innovative Hotspot Venue, we challenged the teams to do more this year. We staffed the Network Operating Center with Wi-Fi experts to ensure the network was always delivering peak performance, and we continued to push the envelope on network capability, demonstrating the pure power of a well-deigned carrier-grade Wi-Fi network in a dense trade show environment. I love this video that gives a behind-the-scenes peak into the NOC at work.

We also used Cisco Mobility IQ to gain business insights about Read More »

Cisco extends market leadership for Unified Access with revolutionary ASIC

Cisco innovates in the industry’s largest product line

Cisco Unified Access is about converging wired and wireless networks to improve scale and quickly launch new services with new levels of security and compliance.

When Cisco launched the Catalyst 3850 and WLC 5760 Controller in January 2013, it stood alone in the market for truly converging Wired and Wireless networks. Over the course of the last 2.5 years, Cisco has progressively extended its lead with more platforms and features based on the revolutionary ASIC which makes this rich convergence possible. And just this month, Cisco delivered Multi-gigabit Ethernet (or mGig), which enables the move to higher Wireless speeds based on the IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 standard. Let’s start by clearly articulating why the home-grown ASIC is so fundamental to successfully integrating Wired and Wireless networks in a seamless way.

The foundational ASIC which Cisco developed is called Unified Access Dataplane (UADP). It cost well over $150M, and took several years to develop and refine. It delivers Hardware performance with Software flexibility and comes with many unique innovations. The defining characteristic of this ASIC is the true full-featured convergence of Wired and Wireless traffic together with its flexible forwarding engine.
