Benefit by Integrating Applications
We know that businesses today need their networks to support all forms of media, as well as new wireless and wired devices.

To solve these challenges, networks must contain intelligence, and integrate advanced applications into an adaptable, pervasive, and collaborative system. This approach provides:

  • Enhanced productivity through increased video-based collaboration and rich-media services, and optimized application delivery
  • Integrated security, where the network becomes the point of control for preventing and responding to security threats
  • Mobility that enables workforce to accelerate decision making and collaborate in real time regardless of location

Improve Processes Through a Systems Approach
A systems approach combines packaging with intelligent applications within and between services. It weaves voice, security, routing, and application services together, so that processes become more automated and intelligent. The results include:

  • Pervasive security in the network and applications
  • Higher quality of service (QoS) for data, voice, and video traffic
  • Increased time to productivity
  • Better use of network resources

This approach begins with a single, resilient platform created by Cisco routers. They give organizations of all sizes fast, secure access to today’s mission-critical applications, as well as a foundation for growth. Cisco routers provide:

  • An integrated systems approach to embedded services that speeds application deployment and reduces costs and complexity
  • Embedded security and voice services in a single routing system
  • The industry’s first portfolio engineered for secure, wire-speed delivery of concurrent data, voice, and video services
  • Unparalleled services performance and investment protection

Gain a Foundation for an Intelligent Network
In addition to providing a platform that helps optimize the delivery of applications and communications, Cisco routers:

  • Deliver the lowest total cost of ownership and the highest return on investment. The Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR G2) reduces operational costs by 50 to 75 percent per year
  • Provide a framework for wireless LAN solutions to use the tools, knowledge, and resources of the wired infrastructure
  • Support multiservice solutions at branches, to deliver performance, scalability, availability, and reliability
  • Feature industry-leading services densities, bandwidth, availability, and performance options for configuration flexibility

Accommodate Business and IT Shifts
Business processes and goals are always under pressure to improve. Indigo-Group switching solutions allow you to act quickly on new business requirements. Scalable performance, integrated services, and flexible configurations offer continued secure, reliable, and simplified communications in times of change.

Implement Security and Compliance
Secure access is critical in a world where threats are ubiquitous. Indigo-Group switching solutions are designed to lock down information, authorise user movements, and mitigate threats in many forms. VLANs, TrustSec, MACsec, firewall, intrusion prevention, and Control Plane Policing are just a few of the essential security capabilities in Cisco switches.

Deliver Superior Investment Protection
Cisco switching solutions as designed to serve your organization now and in the future. Scalable, service-rich Catalyst and Nexus switches adapt to new IT and business requirements. Incremental upgrades can be performed using technologies as switch supervisors, service modules, StackWise, software-based services, and interface components that can be reused or easily replaced.

The Indigo-Group recognise that businesses today are changing, and facing unprecedented challenges. Ever-increasing consumer IT offerings and growing numbers of workers using mobile technology (both in and out of the office) bring new capabilities, along with new security threats. Network guests, contractors, employees, and partners all need differing levels of access. At the same time hackers, botnets, spam, phishing and trojan viruses present their own issues.
