Upgrading security systems to meet both current and future needs is no small feat. So when a Texas-based surveillance system integrator began work with a large national nonprofit foundation on its 20,000 square foot park-like property, existing infrastructure and future system deployment were primary considerations. With the objective to update the nonprofit’s Virtual Management Software (VMS) while leveraging existing analog and IP cameras, the system integrator needed a cost-effective solution to meet their current needs with the ability to scale for rapid growth.
Download this case study to learn more about how the system integrator engaged with NUUO, a leading NVR and VMS manufacturer known for seamless integration of 3rd party cameras to build a customized system that would suit the nonprofit’s needs.
Banks want to use technology to work smarter, better and faster to maintain regulatory compliance, reduce risk and increase productivity. Automated IT systems management is helping them reach those goals in a seamless, efficient manner.
The Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) solution provides design and implementation guidance for organizations looking to deploy wide area network (WAN) transport with a transport-independent design (TID), intelligent path control, application optimization, and secure encrypted communications between branch locations while reducing the operating cost of the WAN. IWAN takes full advantage of cost-effective transport services in order
to increase bandwidth capacity without compromising performance, reliability, or security of collaboration or
This document is a Cisco Validated Design (CVD) for Cisco Connected Mobile Experience (CMX) Solutions. It presents system-level requirements, recommendations, guidelines, and best practices for detecting, connecting, and engaging mobile users within your venue and leveraging your Wi-Fi network to fit your business needs. As Cisco continues to develop and enhance the technologies required to implement a CMX solution, this CVD will evolve and be updated to provide the latest guidelines, recommendations, and best practices for designing and deploying a CMX solution.
Location-based services (LBS) show promise as a budding customer-centric mobility solution in some early adopting verticals such as retail, hospitality, and large public venues. Such services enable businesses to better understand their customer base through analytics as well as offer targeted, context-based communications including promotions and remote assistance. This IDC white paper explores the burgeoning LBS market, highlighting custom research conducted by IDC in March and April 2014; surveys were fielded to both IT and line-of-business (LOB) decision makers in select verticals and market segments. In this white paper, IDC analyzes the data and explores the attitudes surrounding LBS adoption in the context of broader technology trends.
Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.
Walk past your data center, and you might hear a soft, plaintive call: “Feed me, feed me…” It is not your engineers demanding more pizza. It is your servers and applications. And the call is growing louder
New Cisco® 40-Gbps bidirectional (BiDi) optical technology lets you bring 40-Gbps speeds to the access layer using the same 10-Gbps cable plant you are using today. It is a huge cost savings, whether you are upgrading your current data center or building a new one. And it means you can start taking advantage of 40-Gbps performance for your business right now without needing special budget approval and without having to wait a year to get the capacity you need.
You may be considering a cloud computing solution or in the midst of specifying one or even implementing a solution. Read this paper to see what IBM discovered about how companies like yours are adopting, implementing and using cloud computing solutions. Learn about the current rate of adoption, as well as drivers, barriers, and considerations that are influencing the adoption of cloud computing.
Big data projects are becoming reality for nearly every major enterprise. According to a recent survey, 49 percent of respondents say they are implementing, or likely to implement big data projects in the future. Twelve percent already have. With big data comes surprising impacts to your network. The 4 Steps to Surviving Big Data white paper will help you identify problems before they start.
When a performance degradation occurs, there are more factors and interrelationships to consider than ever before. And though you may have invested in various monitoring tools to gain visibility into the elements of your application delivery infrastructure, this view is often fragmented and the tools are managed by separate teams.
