SAN JOSE, Calif. — February 3, 2022 — Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced new innovations designed to power hybrid work with people working from home, in the office, or anywhere.
Businesses of all sizes are adjusting to the major digital transitions that have reshaped IT plans and operations over the past two years, spanning hybrid cloud to connect private and public clouds, AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) for the adoption of IoT, and hybrid work to connect everyone and everything securely. Hybrid work success is not simply the ability to support a remote workforce. It is the ability to adapt to change as it happens. It is all powered by reliable, mission-critical connectivity.
The Network. Powering Hybrid Work.
The network is the essential driver of productivity in a hybrid world, helping businesses, schools, and governments work better. As more people require the flexibility to work on their terms, organizations must rapidly scale their digital operations to enable the connections needed for the work-from-anywhere approach.
For hybrid work to work, a fundamental change is required in how organizations use and rely on technology. Connecting more people and more devices across more places requires ubiquitous wireless connections, increased network strength and resiliency, and reliable zero trust security to deliver the best experience every time, with no interruptions.
At a virtual press event today, the company will explain how its latest wave of tech innovation is critical for customers to deliver improved user experiences, enable smart and sustainable workplaces, and secure IoT deployments at scale across their enterprise campus.
“Hybrid work doesn’t work without the network,” said Todd Nightingale, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Networking and Cloud, Cisco. “The capabilities of the network empower the capabilities of the workforce. These launches, powered by Silicon One, make hybrid work possible with unprecedented power, reliability, and most importantly, the agility needed to continue to adapt and change with our teams.”
New wireless networking and access innovations announced today include:
"Organizations in recent years have accelerated their plans for supporting hybrid work models. A fundamental component of these plans is a secure and powerful network that's able to connect any user at any time," said Brandon Butler, Research Manager, Enterprise Networks, IDC. "IDC believes that the network of the future will need to address the increasing demands of network performance and reliability to ultimately deliver greater business agility and productivity."
