|| The Internet has created a business climate
in which competition is growing, margins are shrinking and the
rapid proliferation of technology is rendering traditional business
models obsolete. Successful companies are increasingly using
business solutions to provide superior customer service,
enable market-share growth and reduce operating costs.

the framework for today's Internet business solutions. As the industry's
only enterprise-wide, standards-based network architecture, Cisco
AVVID provides the roadmap for combining your business and technology
strategies into one cohesive model.
Cisco AVVID network infrastructure enables enterprises to design network
infrastructures which scale to meet e-business demands. Cisco AVVID
Network Infrastructure delivers the e-business infrastructure and
intelligent network services essential for rapid and seamless deployment
of emerging technologies and new Internet business solutions.
What is Cisco AVVID?
Cisco AVVID (Architecture for Voice, Video and Integrated Data) is the foundation of tomorrow's converged enterprise communication networks. Announced by Cisco in September 1999, this architecture encompasses converged client devices, infrastructure hardware/software, directory services, call processing, telephony/data applications, network and policy management, and service and support.
What makes these new solutions "second generation"?
These new products and services are the culmination of more than five
years of combined effort on IP Telephony, video over IP, intelligent
network services, and network and policy management. They represent
considerable development as well as the integration efforts of four
acquisitions. The solutions also reflect two years of customer feedback
about award-winning Cisco IP Telephony products.
