Cisco intends to outline its vision for the evolution of networking on October 3 as it details the development of IP telephony, wireless connectivity and IP storage at this year’s Gitex. Corporate visitors to the show will also receive an insight into the networking giant’s Intelligent Information Network (IIN) and the Networked Virtual Organisation (NVO), initiatives developed in partnership with Cisco’s global client base to meet the challenges of industry both today and in future.
The IIN is Cisco’s technology vision and path from integrated networks for data, voice and video to intelligent networks that can adapt and co-operate with applications. The IIN promises increased resilience and scalability for a company’s business-critical communications infrastructure. It also provides managers with the knowledge they require to make better informed decisions and increase flexibility.
As for the NVO, it is a concept Cisco believes will allow companies to evolve their own business processes to enjoy greater collaboration with customers and suppliers, while also increasing staff productivity. The NVO offers the full benefit of IP Communications, enabling them to outsource non-critical business processes, and focus on core service areas.
“We are pleased to be able to share the latest international best practices and intelligence with regional business leaders through events such as Gitex,” says Ghazi Atallah, general manager of Cisco Systems Middle East. “The regional business community has a great opportunity for growth and the effective deployment of internet business solutions can both accelerate business performance and identify and eradicate potential inefficiencies,” he adds.
