How Cisco IT Implemented Cisco Virtual Office in India
Source: Cisco Systems
A home-office solution in India was welcomed. Like many other companies in the region with global presence, Cisco employees regularly need to collaborate across time zones and continents. Remote network access from home eases the burden on employees who must attend meetings outside of regular business hours. The Cisco Virtual Office solution combines a Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Router with a high-speed broadband connection (usually DSL or cable), a 7900 Series Cisco Unified IP Phone, and Cisco Unified Video Advantage software and a Cisco VT Camera at the employee's home. The Cisco IOS Software-based router provides hardware IP Security (IPSec), Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) encryption, and enhanced security features.
