Hello and Happy Friday the 13th!

The Team (Nasser and Nagaraja) is back in town after a fun week in Austin for Spiceworld 2017. They got the opportunity to spend time with the Spiceheads as we showed off our product and of course, FindIT. Our Cisco Social Media Team was there to Facebook Live two of the FindIT Demonstrations. So here you go. Nasser and Nag are halfway to stardom!

We were showing our products like the Cisco Small Business RV130W and WAP125, which are perfect for a Small Home Office or Business. The WAP581, which offers 802.11ac WAVE2. This particular model can take advantage of Mgig and Link Aggregation. Look for news on some new Mgig Switches..

Also pictured here is the new Cisco 2960L Switch and Aeronet 1815.

Hey SpiceHeads! Watch as Nagaraja Thanthry leads the Find IT demo- a network management system for small to medium businesses. Ask us questions below! #SpiceWorld2017

Cisco Small Business Update – Kaseya Integration, IT-SA and Spiceworld 2017
This post was originally published on this site

This week has been a busy one for us. Besides the MLB postseason starting as well as the regular season openers for the NHL, our team was all over the world covering events and shows. In Tennis, the world finals start later this month, the men will be in London, while the women will be in Singapore.

Our team was in Amsterdam this week for the Kaseya Connect Europe show. We unveiled plans of our Cisco FindIT Network Management Platform integration for Kaseya. We could not be more excited to ride the wave of Cisco Small Business networking into Internal IT Administration and Managed Services. For years, Managed Service Providers and IT Admin’s have been asking for better Networking Administration and Management in Remote Monitoring and Management Suites such as Kaseya. The Kaseya VSA is one of the most popular RMM’s out there and we look forward to seeing how Kaseya Users adopt the new Cisco Small Business FindIT Network Strategy.

We are literally providing the ability to treat network devices like computers, laptops and servers within Kaseya. Yes, on par. For MSP’s, that means your network management capabilities just got a major boost, while the energy and cost to do so drops. We are excited, we hope you are too! Here is channel coverage from our friends from Channel2E.

Nasser, Nagaraja and I met with our friends at Newegg Business. It was great to meet the new Sales Director and our dear friend Scott whom we have worked with for years. Lunch was super fun filled with laughs and plans to ramp not only our products, but their overall networking sales. We have plenty of action items to close now!

Europe’s Largest IT Security Expo starts next week and runs from October 10-12th. Of course our team will be there along with the rest of the security industry. If you are planning on attending, please stop by and find Jo! IT-SA 2017 is being held in Nuremburg, Germany.

By now, you know our team (Nasser and Nag) will be in Austin at Spiceworld 2017. If you planning on attending, please stop by booth 17. We will be doing demo’s of FindIT and our products.  You might even be able to get a glimpse of the FindIT integration inside of Kaseya…

Don’t forget about our earlier post for the Spiceworld 2017 show.

Have a great weekend friends!

Marc and team

Cisco RV340 Dual WAN VPN Security Router: Tolly Report – Most Downloaded
This post was originally published on this site

– October 2, 2017 – 0 Comments

I wanted to share some exciting news from our friends at the Tolly Group. Our Cisco RV340 Dual WAN VPN Security Router Tolly Report has been downloaded more than any other report in September! Here is the Tolly Report.

Launched earlier this year, the RV340, along with the other models including the RV340W, RV345, and RV345P continue to become more popular and the product of choice. Both end-users and partners are raving about the performance, features, ease of use and configuration, and overall quality. These four models provide options for port count, wireless, and PoE. And all of them are supported by the Cisco FindIT Monitoring and Management Platform.

We are proud this success as it is an indicator that our premise of what a Small Business owner and/or Channel Partner would choose for the Small Business Network. Remember, no matter the size of the business or enterprise, the value of the network is the same. Mission-Critical is one way to describe it.

Right?

We will have some exciting Cisco FindIT news coming. Our team will be at Kaseya Connect in Amsterdam next week. And we will be reporting from SpiceWorld 2017 in Austin. So please stay with us for updates.

Marc and the Cisco Small Business Team.

Hello Friends,

Well we have made it to September. Now, most kids are back in school. Pre-Season Football is taking stage while baseball is heading towards the playoffs. We are watching tennis as we look forward to the first weekend at Flushing Meadows for the 2017 US Open. There have been plenty of upsets, but Rafa and Roger are still alive. With #1 Plishkova is out, will #9 in the world Venus Williams make a push for her third US Open? This would go along with her seven Grand Slams, an amazing feat.

Let’s go Vee! Lil Sis is about to have her first baby…

Well, with September comes another update. We have a few things to update all of you so I will keep this short and sweet.

The new RV340 Tolly Report was released this week. This free report is available for download now. We are pleased with the results so please go take a look. The RV340, RV345, RV345P and RV340W are all shipping now.

Cisco FindIT 1.1 is now available. Monitor and Manage your Cisco Small Business Network – Download it free today!

Our new Cisco Small Business Support Community is now online. The new platform offers a new look and feel and should make content easier to find and consume.

The new MGig Wave 2 WAP581 is now shipping. Make sure to contact your local Cisco Partner for details. This high performance Access Point is something that will elevate wireless performance for every small- and medium-sized business.

The new WAP125 is now shipping and available. This new desktop model brings solid wireless performance at an affordable price.
