Cisco switches give you a digital-ready network foundation that is simple, automated, and secure. Your network holds the key to defending your organization. It is critical that your security architecture enable a secure digital network.  It delivers speeds beyond 1 Gigabit on existing Category 5e/6 cables. The technology also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), PoE+, and Cisco Universal PoE (UPOE) so you don’t need to install new electrical circuits to power your access points. Category 5e cables inside buildings that connect switches to wireless access points are limited to just 1-Gigabit speeds. Cisco founded the NBASE—T Alliance in 2014 to make it possible to support up to 10 Gbps over installed Category 5e and 6 cables. Use NBASE-T to support 802.11ac Wave 2 today. Multigigabit technology supports PoE, PoE+, and UPOE so you don’t need to install new electrical circuits to power your access points.

Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) reduces TCO, automates IT tasks, and accelerates data center application deployments. It accomplishes this using a business-relevant Software-Defined Networking (SDN) policy model across networks, servers, storage, security, and services. Cisco ACI is a comprehensive SDN architecture. This policy based automation solution supports a business relevant application policy language, greater scalability through a distributed enforcement system, and greater network visibility. These benefits are achieved through the integration of physical and virtual environments under one policy model for networks, servers, storage, services, and security. Now you can detect every application in your network and optimize bandwidth with application-aware policies. Cisco AVC monitors application performance and troubleshoots issues that arise.

Cisco Switches


The digital landscape is changing at an incredible pace. Demands on IT to manage the complexity, keep costs down, and meet business needs are high. Cisco Managed Services helps you optimize and manage your traditional IT environment to quickly adopt new technologies and transition to the cloud. See how we can effectively manage your new dynamic digital world to achieve extraordinary business results. Cisco Managed Services for Data Center enable you to focus on the business applications deployed on your infrastructure.

These applications serve important business needs. Your infrastructure needs to serve employees consistently, reliably, and in more locations as they increasingly become more mobile. Additionally, the number of applications is growing. Energy requirements and costs are rising as the infrastructure gets more complex. Cisco Managed Services for Data Center help you increase the operational efficiency of your data center and create a more efficient infrastructure. It can help you to deliver a consistently high level of performance and support your growing information management needs.


The more collaboration technology you adopt, the more infrastructure you will have to support and manage. It can be very cost-effective and efficient to turn to a third-party partner for management and monitoring. At the same time, you may want control of and visibility into your network and your collaboration technologies. You probably also want to be able to adapt those technologies to your specific needs. The co-management model of Cisco Managed Service for Collaboration gives you the best of both worlds. We can help you adapt the technology to your needs, and you remain in control of your network.

Moreover, Cisco Managed Service for Collaboration is designed in modules, so you can choose — and pay for — only the capabilities you need. Collaboration brings phenomenal benefits to your organization. And it requires a network optimized to achieve them. We have many years of experience in building and managing networks, and we make our expertise available to you. We can help you make sure that when you add new equipment or applications, your network will support them smoothly, with no surprises. And leave you free to focus on strategic IT.


We deliver a complete and proactive 24/7 incident management and remediation service, staffed by expert engineers with training and experience in Cisco unified communications and collaboration technologies plus ITIL processes. When the platform detects, validates and diagnoses an incident within your network, it immediately notifies our support center — giving our team the detailed information they need to rapidly engage and remediate the issue.

We can tailor the incident management process to match your requirements and organizational policies, including engaging your on site support staff, coordinating vendor support, and sending automated notifications to your technical and business teams. You can also open incidents manually in the platform or by calling our support center. Our network problem management team helps keep incidents from recurring in your environment — making your Cisco unified communications systems, collaboration applications and supporting infrastructure more stable and dependable. This dedicated problem management team focuses on proactive problem prevention and the identification and resolution of underlying causes.

Network Security

A secure network is a powerful tool for achieving growth and stability. Safeguarding your business and customer data is critical for protecting your employees, customers, and reputation in an environment built on trust. Yet maintaining the integrity of your network is difficult to accomplish as you expand your capabilities. Furthermore, changing business models designed around mobility and cloud resources add new layers of intricacy to corporate networks. This creates a dynamic threat landscape that evolves quickly to find gaps in protection. An increasingly complex market for information security leads to fragmented security efforts.

To innovate and disrupt, your business needs a balanced security solution capable of providing both proactive protection and adaptable expansion. Cisco Active Threat Analytics (ATA) integrates deep expertise with cutting-edge technology, leading intelligence, and advanced analytics to detect and investigate threats with great speed,accuracy, and focus. Cisco expert investigators monitor customer networks 24/7 from our global network of state-of-the-art security operations centers, providing constant vigilance and in-depth analysis as a comprehensive security solution.
