Meeting Business and Environmental Challenges

As organizations face more pressure to reduce costs and meet regulatory requirements, Cisco helps enable the “green service provider” by:

  • Building products that optimize energy usage and deliver the most capabilities for energy used
  • Engineering products that are modular and upgradable for longer usable life, use minimal toxic materials, and can be easily recycled when obsolete
  • Designing efficient networks that enable profitable and sustainable business services
  • Offering business and collaboration solutions that help you and your customers operate in more sustainable and effective ways and help you develop new opportunities for business and consumer services
