Cisco boosts borderless network solutions

Cisco Nigeria has launched new range of switching, routing, security and wireless portfolios products and services across all the functional elements of its borderless network architecture, reports CHARLES OKOH.

These included the high-performing and density catalyst switch, adaptive security appliance firewall and compact ASR 1000 router in their classes; new entry-level 802.11n wireless access points for smaller businesses; and new and enhanced smart services offerings.

Presenting these products to customers in Lagos, the General Manager, Cisco Nigeria, Mr. Richard Edet, said last week that Information Technology (IT) managers want to use the network to support the needs of the business, adding that business is changing and IT mangers are under increasing pressure to make the network available to anyone, anywhere, anytime and on any device, especially in a secure, reliable, seamless manner.

“This is precisely the challenge that the Cisco borderless network was designed to address. This third expansion of the borderless networks portfolio is designed to help customers reach new levels of innovation and participation by engaging their customers and employees to create entirely new ways of doing business,” he said.

Also, he said, a new network and application velocity network service was announced to accelerate application performance physically and virtually.

The new products and professional and technical services, Edet said, extend the borderless networks portfolio to address the growing need for high-performance, reliable and secure application delivery from a smaller number of consolidated data centres to a growing number of wired and wireless endpoints, while optimising overall resource utilization and footprint.

Cisco, he said, is the worldwide leader in networking that transforms how people connect, communicate and collaborate, adding that this year celebrates 25 years of technology innovation, operational excellence and corporate social responsibility by the company.
