Cisco provides end-to-end networking solutions that customers use to build a unified information infrastructure of their own, or to connect to someone else's network. An end-to-end networking solution is one that provides a common architecture that delivers consistent network services to all users. The broader the range of network services, the more capabilities a network can provide to users connected to it.
Cisco offers the industry's broadest range of hardware products used to form information networks or give people access to those networks; Cisco IOS® software, which provides network services and enables networked applications; expertise in network design and implementation; and technical support and professional services to maintain and optimise network operations. Cisco is unique in its ability to provide all these elements, either by itself or together with partners.
