Yes, it’s 2017! Where and how did that come around? The year ‘2017’ has the ring of a Philip K Dick novel, way too far in the future for it not to be make believe! 

And continuing on the make believe theme is our latest competition! We have three £100 Love2shop vouchers to give away in partnership with our great friends at Cisco.

As we said, unbelievable!  As are the continuing innovations from Cisco! They completely understand the needs and requirements of connecting users within a Small Business environment.      

Cisco provide a great range of solutions for the Small Business environment – products and pricing to suit all business are available from Comms Express, whatever your budget. What’s more, Cisco brings a wealth of features and the reliability that is vital to any business, and its power to keep your business running efficiently. This power within your business is matched – even surpassed by one thing, your employees. And when you bring them together to share their knowledge, creativity, and experience, their value soars. Studies show that better collaboration leads to improved productivity & profitability, and this collaboration can be achieved by keeping them better connected through your network.

We’re living in a world that’s more interconnected than ever before. Your collaboration may not be limited to your own company. More than ever, people are working across and beyond their own organisations – with customers, colleagues, and business partners.

But keeping employees connected with the people and resources they need to do their best work, on the devices they choose, can be challenging. Your phone system might be maxed out and unable to support more users. You might be running and managing multiple networks from different manufacturers. And you might not be ready to securely support mobile users who want to use their own devices at work. Additionally, you might be paying too much to maintain a system that isn’t able to keep pace with your employees’ and customers’ service expectations.

To be successful, you need an affordable communications solution that lets you start simple and grow as you go. One that lets you smoothly transition from your outdated technology into business-transforming experiences, without disrupting your employees and your business processes. And when your business needs change, your solution should make it easy to adapt and cost-effectively enable you to support new users, devices, and applications.

Cisco is a step in the right direction to improving your network setup. You can make network access, virtual desktops, collaboration, and communication available anywhere, anytime, on any device. All while keeping your network highly secured. Cisco technology allows you to:

• Enforce Security

Keeping your systems, data, clients safe from potential threats is vital in the successful running of a network. Cisco transforms your security to offer extensive threat visibility with the ability, working as a sensor and enforcer.

• Accelerate Services

For any network, knowledge is key. If your network is over performing due to too many processes then Cisco can transform your networks performance to optimise application performance.

• Simplify Operations

Networks are mission critical and tailoring your setup can be key to success. Cisco transforms your networks agility to automate and be programmed to deal with workloads such as traffic filtering with access control lists.

As we said at the top of this unbelievable! We are really looking forward to the ingenuity of Cisco continuing into 2017 and beyond.
