With Cisco’s purchase of Linksys in 2003, the leader in enterprise networking signaled its intent to dive headlong into the home and small-business networking segments.
Those efforts continued this week with the introduction of a new lineup of switches targeted at the small and midsized business market. The new Cisco 100-series line will replace an older Linksys lineup while, it said, helping to simplify Cisco’s overall product lineup for customers big and small. Small Business Computing has the story.
Cisco is an enterprise and service-provider networking giant with switching gear that powers the largest networks in the world. This week, however, Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) is going after the other end of the spectrum with its new entry-level Cisco 100 series for smaller businesses.
The Cisco 100 series replaces an earlier generation of Linksys-branded devices and includes new power management features and capabilities.
