Cisco Solutions

Cisco Solutions

To excite our customers and partners by trying out our holistic business solutions hands on in the CBC, is our motivation. Therefore we are presenting you over 70 actual devices on 600 qm²

Internet of Everything

People. Process. Data. Things. Yesterday, they functioned independently. Today, the Internet of Everything (IoE) brings them all together by combining machine-to-machine (M2M), person-to-machine (P2M), and person-to-person (P2P) connections.

Information extracted from these networked connections creates new capabilities, richer experiences, and incredible economic opportunity. Cisco delivers architectures, solutions, technologies, and consulting services that support you to benefit from the value of the Internet of Everything.

Enterprise Networks

The Internet of Everything creates far-reaching potential. To use this, however, the network infrastructure must be able to provide automatic network services and applications, so they are quickly ready for use. This requires an innovative architecture.

Building on the Cisco Borderless Networks architecture marks the Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture a new milestone in IT. Because it creates a platform that is:

  • open,
  • programmable
  • and application-centered.

The Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture extends the concept of programmable networks through an approach that goes beyond Software Defined Networking (SDN). The network is flexible and powerful, and existing network resources can be used optimally.

Security

The importance of data protection and security increases steadily. That is not only based in the crucial raise of cyber-attacks with political or criminal interests. There are also attacks on private persons, companies and institutions all over the world.

Cisco provides you comprehensive protection by various security solutions.

Collaboration

What means collaboration and how can we put it into practice successfully? A real and extensive experience of collaboration beyond web conferencing, instant messaging and online chats provide the construction of little specialist groups with attendees from all departments. Partner and customer, universities and even competitors can work together and achieve in this way the best possible outcome and a higher efficiency.

Optimizing the collaboration is the best possibility for your business, to support the skills of your employees and to work more flexible and faster. Moreover it is an important part of the competitiveness over the upcoming years.

Virtualization

Datacenters are consuming in the administration, they need a lot of space and are also associated with high costs. In addition, your employees need a lot of time to do their jobs and are inflexible.

One solution is the virtualization. Your data can be hosted securely and cost effectively on a virtual platform.
Therefore, consolidation and virtualization are crucial, if you have a high number of IT staff and the need for more flexibility and lower costs.

The Cisco Unified Computing System ™ (Cisco UCS®) with intelligent processors is reliable, scalable and flexible. This infrastructure is ready to ensure a complete virtualization while reducing your total operating costs.
