Making the Mobility Case to Business Leaders

If you’re going to be an advocate for mobility in your organization, you need to be able to communicate with business leaders about what IT can do for them. You need to shift the perception of your role as a responsive manager of technology services. Instead, you can be a proactive, trusted advisor who understands their business objectives and needs and is invested in their long-term success.

Unlock New Business Value Through More Accurate Context

Businesses in virtually every industry are using location data to better understand their customers and users. By knowing how people move through and interact with a venue, businesses can gain valuable insights to optimize their locations and engage customers at the point of decision. However, contextual customer information is only as valuable as its accuracy. And when it comes to capitalizing on location data, a meter is worth more than a kilometer. The Cisco® Hyperlocation Solution is the industry’s first WiFi network-based location system that can help businesses and users pinpoint a user’s location to within one to three meters, depending on the deployment. Combining innovative RF antenna and module design, faster and more frequent data processing, and a powerful platform for customer engagement, it can help businesses create more personalized and profitable customer experiences.

IDC Marketscape: Worldwide Enterprise WLAN Vendor Assessment

This IDC study represents the vendor assessment model called the IDC MarketScape. This research is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the characteristics that explain a vendor’s success in the marketplace and help anticipate the vendor’s ascendancy. The study assesses the capability and business strategy of 12 of the top enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) vendors. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters expected to be most conducive to success in providing enterprise WLAN solutions, during both the short term and the long term. As the enterprise WLAN market is highly competitive and relatively mature, all vendors performed relatively well in the study.

Lippis Consulting Report: A New Holistic Approach to Enterprise Network Management

IT business leaders are demanding a unified policy-driven management strategy for network access and security, mobile endpoints including iPads, tablets, and smartphones. A holistic network approach is the unification of these management assets to simplify operations and shift control to IT leaders. A holistic network apporach from Cisco Systems is to streamline NetOps through the automated orchestration of policy management and infrastructure. In this model, network admins will not have to access multiple management systems to collect data, coorelate it manually and then attempt to identify problem location. One managemetn system, Cisco Prime NCS with integrated links to ISE, delivers this service to NetOps, drastically improving network visibility and reducing troubleshooting time through a client or user focused approach to managing corporate networks in the age of mobile and cloud computing.

Wireless Network Optimization in Cisco and Apple Deployments

The advent of digitization has ushered in a new era of wireless technology wherein an increasing number of critical applications are being supported on mobile devices such as tablets, phones, and laptops. Employees collaborating in open-space offices or students working together on group projects create an increase in device roaming across the wireless network, which during peak hours leads to packet loss, dropped calls, and other performance decreases. Therefore, the primary challenges faced by IT administrators and end users across sectors like education, healthcare, retail, and enterprise pertain to mobility, scalability, and prioritization. This white paper describes the Apple and Cisco collaboration for creating a superior wireless solution by providing optimal roaming (802.11 r/k/v amendments) and prioritization for business apps. It explains the benefits of the Apple and Cisco wireless solution that end users and IT administrators will be able to take advantage of on iOS devices. It uses the results of tests conducted jointly by Apple and Cisco to showcase enhanced end-user experience and reduced network load.

Top 5 Ways That Cisco ACI Makes IT Agile

Applications are the currency of the digital world. Organizations use them to boost productivity or engage customers in new ways. If the IT structure is too rigid or complex to keep up with the demand for new applications, you end up with a bottleneck, and business suffers. Software-defined networking (SDN) offers the flexibility to eliminate those bottlenecks, and Cisco® Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI™) is the most comprehensive SDN in the industry. Here are five ways that Cisco ACI makes IT fast and agile.

When your organization can reach anyone at any time, good things can happen. Increased productivity. Better collaboration. Enhanced customer insights. Stronger relationships.

At A Glance Cisco Wireless Lan Solutions

Wi-Fi has become the primary access network for most organizations. With Cisco® world-class RF equipment and intelligent software, it’s a snap to make your wireless network as fast, reliable, and secure as your wired network. You get loads of extra features for improving spectrum efficiency, performance, and user experiences that you can’t find anywhere else.

At a Glance: Cisco Firepower NGIPS

It’s no secret that today’s advanced attackers have the resources, expertise, and persistence to compromise any organization at any time. As attackers become more sophisticated and exploit a growing set of attack vectors, traditional defenses are no longer effective. Safeguarding your network assets and data from today’s threats requires detailed visibility into all your network layers and resources. This is a particular challenge with dynamic IT applications and in hybrid data center environments where users, hosts and workloads are constantly changing.

At a Glance: Cisco Identity Services Engine

As the modern network expands, the complexity of marshaling resources, managing disparate security solutions, and controlling risk grows as well. Factor in the ubiquitous connectivity of noncorporate devices with already constrained IT resources, and the potential impact of failing to identify and remediate security threats becomes very large indeed. A different approach is required for both the management and security of the evolving enterprise network. It’s called the Cisco® Identity Services Engine (ISE).

Medical Center Supports Network Based Care

Now a 260-bed acute-care facility staffed by more than 650 physicians and 1450 employees, Chilton Hospital treats some 160,000 patients each year. It is the center of the Chilton Health Network, which delivers health services to more than 30 communities across 350 square miles. The network offers a wide range of healthcare services, including laboratory testing, physical and occupational therapy, and physician partnerships in primary care, internal medicine, breast and colorectal surgery, cardiology, and orthopedics.
