  • Delivering real results in the data center…, and now, breaking barriers in the campusCustomer voice:“[We need] improved services for students and guests to attract new students because they see we use up-to-date technology” – Texas A&M International“We must ensure we have the infrastructure in place to meet the mobility our company requires to deliver greater efficiencies in how we run our businesses.” – Japan Pulp & Paper“We need to be able to react and take immediate advantage of opportunities that could allow us to maximize our competitive advantage.” – Chip Ganassi Racing
  • Campus and small business networks are the backbone for user communications and collaboration, and are ready for a new level of efficiency and performance to maintain productivity.nd-users are clamoring for a better user experience, faster operation, better access and flexibility to bring their own devices, in order to remain productive. They want to consume data and distribute their data faster, and further (globally). IT is already pressured to maintain the network, while scaling it for future growth and new applications. The continued explosion of data creates new congestion points in the network and supporting new employee devices makes deployment and integration more complex, with management of the network not simple. With IT resources already lean, how can IT do more with less? And spend less?Business leaders want new applications and want more productivity from the employee base, while processing and streaming data to different systems. But adding new equipment to meet needs always takes long, incurring a business upgrade cycle coupled with downtime and cost. Network uptime is critical to maintain a 24/7/365 network and ability to easily scale a network appears not so easy.Today’s campus network is expensive, complex and inefficient. How can it scale further, support wired and wireless; employees, customers, partners, vendors…; add features functionality without complexity; Maintain 24/7/365 availability
  • There has been an architectural lock on the network. Slow innovation, high costs, patchwork improvements have created lock-in and a focus on the “plumbing”. Plus, legacy networks can’t keep up with :Continued Explosive Data Growth - UC&C, VDI and streaming accelerate growing data ratesDevice Explosion - Clients continue to drive the consumerization of IT, while network bandwidth is consumedCost Pressures - Grow while spending less Scale - Must support large scale across both wired and wireless; must support employees, customers, partners, vendorsSimplicity - Must continue to add feature functionality without complexityReliability and Availability 27/7/365It takes a network architect to know the issues.
  • SimplicityReduce risk of a second networking vendor with familiar tools and practices.Simplify deployment and management of services such as UC&C.Easily design networks with reference architectures.FlexibilityAccelerate north-south traffic patterns Expand workforce mobility with integrated policy management and bandwidth provision.Reduce costs and lock-in with SDN-ready open architectures.ScalabilityLarge portfolio of access layer components for nearly all network design types and price points.Support growth with 1/10GbE solutions.Investment protection with 40GbE and 802.11ac.
  • New silicon & softwareComprehensive enterprise-class Layer 2/3 feature setConsistent simplified management & CLI/GUICommon management, data encryption, security Deploy with confidence at any scaleUSB rapid deployment and built-in stacking Lifetime warranty across hardware, software updates, power supplies, fans and opticsProactive support options
  • High-density 9- and 13-RU chassis switches1.536 Tbps throughput powered by FTOS softwareUp to 48 x 40GbE, 128 x 10GbE or 312 PoE+ ports in a single chassis Maximum flexibility and versatilityDesigned for wide-range access, aggregation and core applications Mix-and-match different speeds and reaches Integrated resiliency and redundancy SFP+, PoE+ maximize connectivity
  • Enterprise-class support in our point of view means:A single point of contact into the support organization Broad as well as deep experience beyond the single piece of hardware Eliminating the fact that we will have issues with automation and tools (the more we can automate these complex scenarios, the less time the customer has to deal with it, the more proactive we can be, the more we can leverage the environment we’re going to gain to drive significant enhancements and performance back to our customers). And you want all of this from a provider who has the established infrastructure and scale to deliver a consistent global experience regardless of where you’re located or what language you speak.  Optional* multi-vendor hardware support reduces communications to one interface to resolve issues *help re-purpose resources for higher priorities.
