How Cisco IT Provides Remote Network Access for Small Offices and Teleworkers
Source: Cisco Systems
The Cisco Virtual Office solution extends the Cisco routed intranet, via secure VPN Internet connections, into thousands of employees' homes and, in the future, small offices. This case study describes the deployment of the Cisco Virtual Office solution within Cisco's own network, an advanced enterprise environment that is one of the largest and most complex in the world. As of mid-2008, Cisco had more than 15.000 internal users for the Cisco Virtual Office solution. This deployment is yielding the benefits of increased employee productivity and job satisfaction; IT cost savings, and reductions in Cisco's environmental impact. Customers can draw on Cisco IT's real-world experience in this area to help support similar enterprise needs.
