What the customer says

“Cisco’s technology is cutting edge and we are proud to work with them. From an enterprise switching and firewall point of view, Cisco is unlikely to be beaten. But on top of all this, as a global leader of corporate responsibility - a truly good, active, insightful and productive global citizen, Cisco really gets what Comic Relief is all about.”
