Cisco switches and routers are the heart of your business network. They provide the backbone that keeps your company connected and running. With a variety of models to choose from, Cisco has a switch or router to fit your needs.
Easy-to-Use Managed Switches that Provide the Ideal Combination of Features and Affordability
To stay ahead in a competitive marketplace, small businesses need to make every dollar count. That means getting the most value from your technology investments, but it also means making sure that employees have fast, reliable access to the business tools and information they need. Every minute an employee waits for an unresponsive application – and every minute your network is down – has an impact on your bottom line. The importance of maintaining a strong and dependable business network only grows as your business adds more employees, applications, and network complexity.
When your business needs advanced security and features but value is still a top consideration, you’re ready for the new generation of Cisco® Small Business managed switches: the Cisco 300 Series.
The challenge for small branch offices is to provide always-on data services, secure connections to corporate resources, and access to public cloud services. You might also need wireless or voice connectivity in the branch. The 880 routers provide best-in-class performance and connection options to branch offices with 5 to 10 workers.
Cisco 890 Series ISRs deliver integrated security and threat defense, protecting networks from both known and new Internet vulnerabilities and attacks. These powerful, fixed-configuration routers provide secure broadband, Metro Ethernet, and Wireless LAN (WLAN) connectivity. Service providers offering managed Ethernet WAN services can deploy them in customer locations as CPE. You get centralized and remote management capabilities through web-based tools and Cisco IOS® Software for full visibility and control of network configurations at the remote site.
The 890 routers simplify the deployment of Ethernet WAN services, with end-to-end Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OA&M), Service-Level Agreement (SLA) monitoring and verification, and configuration management.
Cisco 890 Series ISRs come with an 8-port managed switch, providing LAN ports to connect multiple devices. An optional Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) capability can also supply power to IP phones and other devices. Eleven Cisco 890 Series models are available: Figure 1 shows the front and back of one, the Cisco 892FSP.
