Distributor to provide purpose-built solutions for small businesses
Comstor, a Cisco distributor and part of Westcon-Comstor, has announced the immediate availability of the recently launched new Cisco Business Dashboard and Cisco Business Switch solutions as part of its Cisco Designed portfolio.
The introduction of this offering marks an important step in Cisco’s ongoing commitment to helping small business customers solve their networking challenges.
Russell Blackburn, EMEA VP, Comstor, commented: “Small business continues to be a segment showing huge growth, which is why it is key that we’re able to provide tailored solutions that address these companies’ needs and objectives.
"The Cisco Business Switches are a critical addition to our extensive Cisco Designed small business portfolio - including Meraki and Meraki Go. Thanks to these new additions from Cisco, we’re confident we are well placed to provide the support that they need.”
Cisco Business Switches are affordable network devices and software, designed and built for small businesses looking for an on-premises solution. Cisco Business Dashboard enables easy management of all Cisco Business devices and provides a single pane of glass for overseeing the network.
It simplifies traditional challenges in deploying and managing business networks while automating configuration, monitoring and lifecycle management processes. The digital tool allows users to manage up to twenty five Cisco Business devices at no cost, while additional licenses can be purchased for partners or service providers who manage bigger networks.
Cisco Business Switches provide crucial building blocks for any small business network wishing to accelerate digital transformation. Featuring an all-new, on-device user interface, elegant industrial design and step by step user guide, the switches provide the most intuitive user experience for small business customers. Two product ranges will be available from Comstor’s catalogue: the Cisco Business 350 Series and Cisco Business 250 Series.
The 350 and 250 Series combine network performance, security, and reliability with a suite of network features that small businesses can depend on. Both series feature highly versatile port and PoE (Power over Ethernet) configurations, while the fan-less design enables flexible placement in any work, retail or hospitality space.
Philip Wright, Senior Director, EMEAR Distribution, Cisco commented: “Both Cisco Business Dashboard and Cisco Business Switches are extremely valuable inclusions in our brand’s expanding small business networking portfolio. We’re here to support small businesses, whether they prefer cloud-delivered or on-premise solutions, and these two product ranges will be crucial in helping them to achieve their goals and business outcomes.
