Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report. We tested the following switch-configurations of the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X, HP 2920 and HP 5120 product families.

IT has gone through a significant evolution over the past decade. Virtualization has changed the entire face of the data center, the network edge has become predominantly wireless and consumer devices reign supreme. However, one of the few areas of IT that has yet to evolve is the corporate wide area network (WAN). Managing the WAN is something network managers have always struggled with because WAN speeds are typically an order of magnitude, or more, slower than local area networks (LANs).

In January 2015, Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco TrustSec. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Cisco TrustSec on their organizations. The Cisco TrustSec solution simplifies the provisioning and management of highly secure access to network services and applications. Unlike access control mechanisms that work on network topology, Cisco TrustSec policies use logical grouping. Highly secure access is consistently maintained even as resources are moved in mobile and virtualized networks.

The idea of bring your own device (BYOD) for connectivity has been well recognized in most networking environments. Yet some corporations are still struggling to understand its potential impacts. For them, the concept of users attaching privately owned and managed smartphones, tablets or laptops to their secure networks is a relatively new and worrisome concept. However, it is a challenge that customers in higher education have been dealing with for years as students have increasingly turned to easy-to-connect and affordable laptops as study aids.

Historically, the speed of a wired connection at the access edge has always been faster than that of a wireless connection. This means workers had to choose between the performance of wired connectivity and the convenience of a wireless connection. Consequently, workers often had to modify the way they worked— first, finding a wired port to use for high-bandwidth applications, such as video or streaming media, and then shifting to wireless connections when the need to be mobile was more important than having the performance of wired.

Miercom was engaged to perfirm independent, hands-on, comparative testing of competitive IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2-based WiFi Access Points (APs) from Cisco Systems, Aruba Networks and Ruckus Wireless. This report summarizes the results of the Wave 2 AP comparative testing in these areas: - Client density: Downlink throughput as the number of client per AP scales from 10 to 100. - Single vs Multi-User MIMO: Downlink throughput for MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input Multiple-Output), a hallmark of 802.11ac Wave 2, vs Single-User (SU-MIMO) environments. - 1 Gbps+ Link Aggregation: Tests found that Wave 2 APs can support more than 1Gbps of aggregate downlink throughput, tested over two 1-Gbps LAG (link aggregation) connections.

Cisco made Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) generally available on November 3rd, 2015. It is an SDN controller that supports apps that make WAN and access networks easier to deploy and manage. Cisco’s focus on a low-risk, incremental approach to adopting SDN will appeal to its user-base. Cisco needs to describe the policy control capabilities benefits of APIC-EM, and also highlight its power as a platform and its ability to distinguish apps from point solution offerings from many other companies with competitive features.

When evaluating a next-generation firewall (NGFW) to determine whether the solution can give you comprehensive protection for your entire enterprise, you need to look for seven must-have capabilities. The NGFW should: 1. Integrate security functions tightly to provide effective threat and advanced malware protection 2. Provide complete and unified management 3. Provide actionable indications of compromise to identify malicious activity across networks and endpoints 4. Offer comprehensive network visibility 5. Help reduce complexity and costs 6. Integrate and interface with third-party security solutions 7. Provide investment protection This white paper explains this checklist in depth and provides examples of the benefits a truly effective NGFW solution can deliver.

As the corporate landscape becomes increasingly mobile, and workers collaborate across a growing range of devices, organizations are implementing an agile and secure unified communications infrastructure. Active deployment of UC technology solutions has been on the rise among enterprises; however, adoption among midsize businesses has been notably slower. Yet in seeking ways to do more with less, midsize organizations are increasingly turning to the cloud and converged networks to provide UC solutions. In October 2013, Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to dive deeper into the current usage trends and perceptions of unified communications among midsize organizations (100 to 999 employees) across North America, Asia, and Europe.

Today’s corporate networks are more important to business objectives than ever before. Consequently, greater amounts of sensitive data traverse both wired and wireless networks. This plethora of valuable data in today's enterprise attracts an increasing number of hackers and malware applications. However, the inherent connected intelligence and distributed nature that makes the network a treasure trove for cybercriminals can also empower the network to be a proactive security tool. Through traffic visibility, and segmentation, today's enterprise network can prove itself to be a sensor and enforcer for security.

Across organizations from all sectors, the network is becoming more integral to daily operations. This is acutely felt by public sector organizations in the United States, namely federal, state, and local governmental organizations. Public sector organizations contend with the challenge of ensuring the security of highly sensitive data on the network in the midst of uncertain budgets and, in many cases, outdated infrastructure. At the same time, many public sector organizations grapple with a complex web of compliance protocols that must be supported on the network. This Analyst Connection explores the need for network infrastructure upgrades that include "foundational security."
