Improve operational efficiencies with next-gen networks and servicesThere has never been a better time for service providers to streamline operations, improve responsiveness and reduce costs. Find out in this white paper how all three can be accomplished with IBM Tivoli® Netcool® solutions. Also discover methods to boost efficiency and minimize expenditures.
To get a handle on what was possible, and all that would be involved, Bob Stirton, director of information technology for the Kansas City Chiefs football organization, sent Network Engineer Scott Fletcher on a scouting mission to the 2012 Super Bowl at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Fletcher watched first-hand the inner workings of a recently installed Cisco Systems wireless network in full-on, gameday action.
Wireless technology surrounds us — in the workplace, at home, and many places in between. Mobile phones, WiFi networks, wireless computer accessories, and cordless phones all use radio transmissions for wireless communication. Even devices not used for communication, such as microwave ovens and lighting systems, emit radio frequency energy that can impact wireless devices. In this crowded radio environment, two technologies have emerged as the standard for wireless voice communication in UC and enterprise applications.
Voice is at the heart of enterprise collaboration. Plantronics provides a comprehensive portfolio of audio devices for the mobile professional delivering superb call clarity working anywhere. Advanced Smart Sensor Technology and Software deliver a superior user experience. InstantMeeting software allows for easy, one-touch joining of audio conference calls
Maximize the effectiveness of collaboration. As teams become ever more dispersed, organisations need to think about more than technology to ensure collaboration is successful. With employees now separated much more by time and distance, a range of communication tools are being used by enterprises to keep everyone connected.
Read the white paper "How Cloud Communications Is Opening Up Possibilities (and Floor Space)" to find out why some IT pros are shopping for game tables to go in empty server rooms while others are untangling wires and watching blinking lights—and which cases make the most sense for each approach.

Over the past decade, wireless technology has made huge strides in security, reliability and throughput. Companies that are moving forward with business mobility initiatives must plan for wireless security and mobile device management from the start. Learn about many of the notable trends and key issues associated with Business Mobility and where to find additional resources for consideration.
The current gold standard as far as business technology goes is wireless/mobile computing. It’s what business and engineering courses are training the future workplace in using. It’s what provides an income stream and stock value to a whole mushrooming sector of the economy. It’s what makes large-scale projects in virtually any field not only easier to coordinate and complete, but also cheaper and faster all around. Finally, it’s what you and your company need to learn how to use, in order to maintain your lead over the rest of the competitive world.
Wi-Fi is about to get a reboot. New 802.11ac Wave 2 products will make it possible to deliver LAN-like multigigabit speeds over the wireless network for the first time, enabling previously unimagined scale and flexibility in the enterprise workspace. But how will businesses capitalize on this new capacity when most current Ethernet access cabling maxes out at 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps)? This white paper:
? Introduces the new generation of Cisco® Catalyst® switches with Multigigabit Ethernet technology, the first platforms to combine support for multigigabit wireless speeds with full power over Ethernet (PoE) in an easy-to-deploy solution.
? Shows how Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Ethernet switches use NBASE-T technology to empower you to deliver 5-Gbps speeds over your existing access cabling.
? Details how Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Ethernet switches gives you the scale and capacity you need today, while protecting your network investments for the future.

Hear real-world examples of how companies like yours consolidated their security to lower their total cost of ownership, optimized existing resources, increased their security and dramatically improved productivity!
Mobility is now a business fact of life. Will your organization be one with mobile capabilities or a truly mobile enterprise? The new IBM white paper “Building the mobile enterprise: integrated, secure and productive” explains the difference and offers a checklist of eight key items to consider when planning your mobility initiatives.
Your users are ready for multigigabit wireless. The real question is: Is your network? Don’t miss this opportunity to get a first-hand look at the solutions you’ll need to achieve data rates that make it easier for your people to share, stay informed, and make smart decisions.
• Join hosts Robb, Jimmy Ray, and networking experts as they dive deep into the technical details of delivering exponentially faster 802.11ac Wave 2 access through the current Cat5 cable you already have.
• Hear all about Cisco’s founding membership and participation in the NBASE-T Alliance, the team that’s driving the standardization of 2.5 Gb/s and 5 Gb/s Ethernet speeds in campus access.
• Discover the access point and switch technology you’ll need to ensure that your wired access layer does not become a stumbling block for your continued mobile growth.
Walk past your data center, and you might hear a soft, plaintive call: “Feed me, feed me…” It is not your engineers demanding more pizza. It is your servers and applications. And the call is growing louder
New Cisco® 40-Gbps bidirectional (BiDi) optical technology lets you bring 40-Gbps speeds to the access layer using the same 10-Gbps cable plant you are using today. It is a huge cost savings, whether you are upgrading your current data center or building a new one. And it means you can start taking advantage of 40-Gbps performance for your business right now without needing special budget approval and without having to wait a year to get the capacity you need.
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.
