Hello and welcome to today’s presentation on Linksys by Cisco Small Business Solutions
In today’s business environment there is constant pressure to increase revenues and decrease costs in the midst of ever increasing competition. This has led to an increase in the pace of business. Customer expectations have also increased as they are presented with more options for product and services from an increasing variety of suppliers. In this environment, businesses need to be responsive, and look for ways to improve their business model. Evolving regulations and privacy laws, such as Sarbanes Oxley and HIPPA, have led to business continuity and compliance becoming fundamental elements of a business’s network and communication planning efforts. Collaborations and Interactions must be secure and compliant. How can a business ensure that collaborative interaction is secure, delivery is guaranteed when necessary and that such interactions are auditable in an increasingly regulated world? Productivity and business performance will largely come from how well businesses innovate and how effectively they work to make timely well informed decisions. Innovating efficiently requires effectively integrating people, processes and information and demonstrating the agility to understand and respond to changes and the speed to execute before others These realities have changed how we work. The lines between work hours and business hours are blurring. We are moving from the concept of contiguous “working hours” to fragmented “working moments.” businesses for competitiveness and productivity reasons and employees for flexibility/quality of life reasons are supportive of the ability.

Linksys by Cisco VPN Routers - Linksys has a complete selection of wired and wireless VPN routers, so workers can communicate and collaborate confidentially or access business-critical data from a remote office or when they’re traveling. Small business users often need their networks to go with them when they travel. Or want to connect to a satellite office. Linksys by Cisco products enable them to keep in touch with their home office and stay on the job anytime, anywhere they can connect to the Internet. Whether they need wired or wireless connectivity, IPSec or SSL security, there is a Linksys by Cisco product that will let them keep their employees productive. In branch offices or on the road, they can communicate knowing that their data will stay safe. And many Linksys by Cisco products can be remotely managed, so a business’ network administrator can monitor, configure or troubleshoot the network through a browser-based user interface. Once a small business goes wireless, they will wonder how they ever lived without it. Now they can enjoy the freedom to work anywhere, without cables and get the performance they have come to expect from a robust business network—wirelessly. Many Linksys by Cisco wireless routers, access points and adapters include features like multiple SSID-to-VLAN mapping, 802.11g or 802.11n with Power over Ethernet, VPN security, Quality of Service, WPA and WMM and more. At the same time, these devices are designed to be easy to set up, reliable, and include powerful and intuitive management tools. Going wireless has never been so easy or affordable.
Linksys by Cisco networking products allow you to connect computers, printers, network devices in your small business into a whole working system.

With our Managed Switches (SLM, SRW, SFE or SGE series) you can optimize the network enabling your workforce to be more productive and efficient with controls for Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize voice, video with data, Virtual LANs (VLANs) for workgroup traffic, and Link Aggregation to significantly boost network speeds. Linksys by Cisco routers and managed switches also include the latest security features to control access to the network, and to prevent attacks from the Internet and even inside the network.
Linksys Voice System provides small businesses with solid, high-tech, and enterprise-quality telephone services.

Additionally, there is Support for Auto Attendant, Hunt Groups, and Voicemail. Also included are upscale business features that direct callers to the right destination and relieve employees from answering and transferring calls. The Attendant Console (SPA932) allows calls to be answered or screened by an assistant or co-worker when an employee is busy or unable to answer calls to his or her line.

Linksys Voice System has the ability to assign private, unique, and easily reachable numbers to employees or work stations, increasing business efficiency and reducing missed calls.
Today, small businesses need to take measures to protect their operations. A surveillance solution enables businesses to recover assets or to minimize or eliminate these threats. Prior to innovations in networking technology, many surveillance solutions involved costly systems that were often beyond the reach of small businesses. Now, with a Linksys IP Video Surveillance solution, your business or organization can have a more versatile, flexible and retrievable video surveillance solution at a fraction of what previous systems cost. A Linksys IP-based Video Surveillance solution enables you to monitor your business around the clock even in low light or no-light settings. It also gives you the added benefit of monitoring your business remotely through an available Internet connection no matter where you happen to be in the world. Motion detection capabilities of a Linksys surveillance solution can also be programmed to alert you or others that an event is occurring that may require monitoring or response. Linksys surveillance solutions, with optional audio equipment, also give you the ability to communicate with parties that your surveillance cameras have detected. Linksys by Cisco provides affordable, simple and very effective ways for you to monitor your business. With the addition of Linksys Network Storage System products, you’ll also be able to archive your video surveillance sessions and retrieve them whenever you need them.
Trend Micro ProtectLink Gateway is a subscription-based service that can help mitigate spam, block unwanted email, and help prevent access to questionable Web sites that may contain malware or spyware. It adds a critical layer of security to Linksys by Cisco Business Series routers by helping to prevent viruses and other Web threats from entering into and damaging a company’s entire network. As a hosted security service, ProtectLink Gateway requires no additional software or hardware, and can be deployed on new or existing Linksys routers. Stop Spam and Web Threats at the Gateway; increase employee productivity Studies have shown that 80 percent of email is unwanted spam that congests in-boxes and increases the potential for spyware to infect computer and networks. Another drain on employee productivity and network bandwidth is the access of questionable Web sites that may host malware and spyware. The combined Linksys by Cisco Business Series router and Trend Micro ProtectLink Gateway software solution help give small business customers a comprehensive security shield to improve employee productivity through spam blocking and URL filtering.
The intelligent chassis design of the Linksys Network Storage System (NSS) series of products offers the flexibility to configure or reconfigure a storage system for specific business requirements. A Linksys by Cisco NSS product can be optimized for performance, capacity and/or reliability depending on the size and type of SATA (Serial ATA) drives selected or included. Supporting as many as 15 or 75 concurrent CIFS (Common Internet File System) users, Linksys by Cisco NSS products bring robust Network Attached Storage (NAS) within reach of today’s budget-minded small businesses. Linksys by Cisco NSS devices are ideal for storing, backing up, sharing and archiving critical company or customer information on an on-going basis. The feature set of the rack-mountable Linksys NSS series set it apart while its competitive pricing gives small businesses the opportunity to realize substantial cost savings when compared with more expensive and inflexible storage systems. Unlike other NAS systems that need to contain operating system software on one or more hard drives, each Linksys NSS product features a unique and intelligent chassis that contains the Linux OS that controls the system. This gives the NSS system the flexibility to be configured without connected drives and reconfigured at any time, even hot swapping and resorting hard drives to different storage bays.
The Linksys by Cisco Continuous Data Protection for Files (LBACDP) solution is designed to deliver automatic data back-up and restore functionality to small business organizations, letting them focus on their businesses rather than IT-related administrative tasks. Provides data protection in case of a corruption, user error, virus, or system failure -- installs and configures in minutes, and runs invisibly in the background. Continuously protected files are backed up to a local drive, so that backup copies are created even when network conditions prevent storing backup copies on remote storage locations. Continuously protected files can also be stored on remote storage locations, when network connections allow. If a remote location is not available when you change a continuously protected file, Continuous Data Protection for Files (CDP-F) makes a backup copy on that device as soon as the device becomes available. Scheduled backup copies are created on the interval that you configure (hourly, weekly, daily, or monthly). If the remote device for scheduled backups is not available at the time of the backup, CDP-F stores the backups to the remote location as soon as that device becomes available. Every time you change a file, a backup copy is created. This allows you to choose which version of a protected file you want to restore. Plus you configure how many backup copies to save.

Linksys Connected Office products and solutions are backed by decades of networking and voice engineering innovations and expertise from the two leaders in the industry – Cisco and Linksys.
