Optimize Branch Footprint with Application Integration

Optimizing the branch network and IT footprint is a key focus of reducing IT complexity today. The Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR) has traditionally helped in consolidating the network infrastructure and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

The Cisco Application eXtension Platform (AXP) enhances the capabilities of the Cisco ISR by enabling a tighter integration between the branch network, IT and application infrastructure. The Cisco AXP further lowers TCO by providing an open Linux based platform to develop and host custom and third party applications directly on the Cisco ISR.
