Comparison of Two Companies

Cisco is an organization that's primary focus is to build a human network that strengthens the corporate infrastructure. The company will revolutionize the way teams collaborate by utilizing virtual desktop technology. With Cisco's cutting edge technology, teams will have an advantage of having a team meeting right in the comfort of their own living room on a High Definition television or desktop. Cisco's methodology will further enhance the team collaboration process by making team contributions more convenient thus eliminating time constraints and communication barriers. Cisco will eliminate the need for web cameras during video conferences. In 2013, Cisco vows to completely change the communication framework in which case all communication will reduce text based chat and convert to mostly video communications to provide a sense of "working together without being together."

Switches

Cisco Switches are used for connecting organizational environments by producing high-performing applications for computing purposes. Cisco has a wide array of switches and routers that includes the following:

? Blade-used for energy efficiency, reduces cord clutter, and creates more office work space, improves security and management standards.

? Connected Grid-a substation that connects distribution channels.

? Industrial Ethernet Switches-"provides Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for deployment in harsh environments." (Cisco, 2010).

? InfiniBand Switches-dual band switches that encompasses DDR and SDR interfaces that delivers maximized bandwidth.

? Service Provider-Aggregation-"Meet the challenges of next generation residential services with Cisco Carrier Ethernet switches providing the aggregation and multiplexing layer between access and edge layers." (Cisco, 2010).

? Service Provider-Ethernet Access-"Implement class-leading switches featuring application intelligence, unified services, nonstop communications, virtualization, integrated security, and simplified manageability." (Cisco, 2010).

Routers

? Mobile Internet Routers-used to deliver virtualization, monitor data access, implement advanced security policies.

? Branch-this router is used to maximize network usage and is a cost effective option for most organizations.

? Connected Bridge-used for transmission and distribution substations. This router is somewhat of a risk mitigation technique used to meet the needs of harsh environments associated with transmission.

"NetGear offers a complete portfolio of interoperable Residential and Business Customer Premises Equipment, enabling Service Providers to control the deployment and operation of new Services that increase revenues while reducing installation complexity and follow-up customer support." (NetGear, 2010).

NetGear provides wireless adapters, power lines, and wireless routers. Their business model includes using innovative technology that enhances an individual's home theatre system. The company is known for their reliability, ease of usage, and durability. NetGear provides products for home, office, and service providers, their products promote high performance measures, cost effectiveness, and solutions to supply all corporate and personal networking needs. All of their products are categorized based on specific needs, for instance; simple sharing, work and play, and high performance, therefore the services NetGear provides depends upon what a customer wants to accomplish.
