My first iPhone!

October 5, 2012 - 1 Comment

Excitement, anticipation, and a bit of anxiety. 3-2-1-Submit:  it was done: I’d just ordered my first iPhone! I’m not your typical fangirl—I loved my trusty  Droid for 2 years, but couldn’t help wondering what the iPhone fuss is all about and had to test out the “Apple way” for myself.

It’s clear I’m not the only one jumping on the bandwagon. Within three days, the iPhone 5 sold over five million units! And that’s not all. Apple is estimated to have sold  over 12 million units by the end of the month! iPhone users aren’t the only ones exploding the market. Google reported that in September 2012, there were over 1.3 million Android activations every day.

We’ve been promised speed, high performance and simplicity. In my mind, I should automatically be able to use my new device to connect with family and friends. Equally as important to me is the ability to access my work email and calendar, painlessly jump on a webex conference call and access Cisco’s intranet for up to date company information.

Don’t you feel the same way about your network? You should be able to painlessly and seamlessly manage your security policy, network management, and network architecture without having to maintain statuses of multiple solutions. With enhanced Unified Access, now you can do just that. (Learn more in our upcoming webinar)

Unified Access combines One Policy, One Management and One Network to create one platform to show us what’s possible. It’s the best way to prepare an organization for the deluge of devices coming onto the network, but given the fact that most companies are currently utilizing multiple solutions to patch up their different networking problems, we know that it’s not necessarily simple to understand exactly what Unified Access is and how it makes the most sense for you.

That’s why Chris Spain, Cisco VP of Product Marketing, is hosting a webinar with  a featured analyst firm who will discuss market trends.  Chris will then take a deeper look into Unified Access and how this innovative IT platform can help enterprise IT managers.

  • How can you create the flexible architecture you need to combine the wired and wireless network?
  • How can Unified Access address difficulty with identity, security and management?
