As demands for “right here, right now” information sharing continue to rise, today's organizations are taking a hard look at their branch and remote locations, where performance and service enablement have always been a primary indicator of companywide productivity.
Solutions like Cisco's Common Platform Architecture based on UCS with Intel Xeon processors provide a predictable, flexible, and open infrastructure on which companies can build a broad portfolio of BDA solutions while minimizing capital and operating costs.
Read more to learn how Cisco® Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) is the integrated solution that provides visibility into potential threat activity and the control to rapidly contain and remediate malware.
The report is divided into two main areas:
Threat Intelligence, which gives an overview of the latest threat
research from Cisco.
And, Analysis and Observations, where security industry consolidation and the emerging concept of integrated threat defense is discussed.
Technological integration doesn’t happen overnight, of course. It takes years of behind-the-scenes teamwork and engineering—backed by decades of expertise, research, and development—to have a broad and lasting impact.
This special edition of Unleashing IT highlights the fruits of those labors, showcasing the unparalleled alignment of Microsoft, Cisco, and Intel technologies. In the following pages, you’ll read about the advancement and unique value of integrated solutions, spanning cloud environments, data centers, and management tools. You’ll also hear from organizations that are taking advantage of these converged technologies, including King County, Provincia Net, and Swinburne University.
With Microsoft, Cisco, and Intel, you have a triad of innovators and leaders that recognize the value of integration, virtualization, and unified management. A triad that continues to work behind-the-scenes to reduce the complexity and increase the capability of enterprise solutions.
“Innovation” is an overused term. The smallest adjustments, the most trivial enhancements, and the least impactful improvements are often trumpeted as innovative. But every once in a while, something truly groundbreaking and transformative comes our way—disrupting longstanding assumptions and norms in the process. This edition of Unleashing IT showcases Cisco’s holistic approach to the future of networking: application Centric Infrastructure (aCI). Promoted by Cisco, Intel®, and ecosystem partners, aCI is a true innovation that changes the way technology is delivered in support of business priorities
Join us for Part 1 as senior executives from Cisco, Rockwell Automation, and Steelcase explore:
- The business case for the Internet of Things (IoT)
- Why IoT will change manufacturing as we know it
- What you need to consider before your competition does

IoT describes a system where items in the physical world, and sensors within or attached to these items, are connected to the Internet via wireless and wired Internet connections. These sensors can use various types of local area connections such as RFID, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee. Sensors can also have wide area connectivity such as GSM, GPRS, 3G, and LTE.
Gain Immediate Value from Your Connected Factory Architecture!
Imagine if you could reconfigure your production line in days instead of weeks. Or if you could cut long search times for parts in half using factory wireless across a connected factory architecture.
These are only a few of the reasons why leading manufacturers deploy Cisco’s Connected Factory Solution.
Now you can try out these new technologies and capabilities on a small scale, with low financial risk in your own plant with the Cisco Connected Factory Starter Kit. Create a living lab and test out one or more specific use cases. Use it as a demo to get buy in from stakeholders. Or get one production line up and running immediately and roll out a more comprehensive deployment later on.
Cisco® Validated Designs provide the foundation for systems design based on common use cases or current engineering system priorities. They incorporate a broad set of technologies, features, and applications to address customer needs. Cisco engineers have comprehensively tested and documented each Cisco Validated Design in order to ensure faster, more reliable, and fully predictable deployment.
This design guide summary provides you with an overview of the Cisco Intelligent WAN Design Guide, the key technology, the use cases it provides, and additional and related resources.
This Technology Spotlight examines the role of digital transformation in customer engagement and omni-channel retail. It also looks at the role of Cisco's enterprise networking solution portfolio, particularly Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) and Intelligent WAN (IWAN), in the strategically important omni-channel retail market.
