Comms Express was launched in 2002 literally out of a bedroom, with a simple dream to really offer value as a key distributor and reseller of computer networking equipment. So the Cisco story and its humble beginnings are one we can emphasise with.
In 1984 when husband and wife Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner, both working for Stanford University, wanted to email each other from their respective offices located in different buildings they were thwarted due to technological shortcomings. Technological advances had to be invented to deal with disparate local area protocols, and as a result of solving their challenge – the multi-protocol router was born.
The name Cisco was derived from the city name San Francisco, and in the early days, the company was always formatted in the lowercase in keeping with their famous namesake.
It is a testament to their constant evolution and desire that they are now recognised as the worldwide leader in their field. They have revolutionised how we communicate, connect and collaborate.
Today they offer a wide range of services and products for all business needs: Application Network Services; Networking Software; Physical Security; Interfaces and Modules; Routers; Cloud and Systems Management; Wireless and Switches, and much, much more.
Comms Express has been working with Cisco for some five years now. It has proved to be a fruitful partnership. The team based in their UK Headquarters in Middlesex are always on hand with great advice. It is always a joy to work with people who hold the customer in such high regard as it is certainly part of our DNA too. The following mission statement from their company website highlights their ethos wonderfully: ‘customers came first and an integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships and working with them to identify their needs and provide solutions that support success.’
Cisco currently works with a great hashtag #TomorrowStartsHere, and for us, it really hits upon the idea that Cisco is there to help companies seize the opportunities of tomorrow by connecting the previously unconnected.
Our Cisco range is vast, including:
