Flash Sale, Cisco, Huawei, Ruckus and more

Hello, guys! Router-switch.com is celebrating the 19th anniversary. To help every customer choose the right products, we also provide 5 trending business solutions, including Cisco UC Solution, Cisco Wireless Solution, Aruba Wireless Solutions and HPE DL360 & DL380 Server Solutions.

Let’s explore.

  1. Cisco UC Solution

Cisco Unified Communications series provides us hot IP phones series, the 7800 and 8800. How to build a useful unified communication system for business, here is the solution:

cisco-uc-solution-architecture

We need to deploy L3 core switch and L2 PoE switch. Of course, UC router and firewall are needed. Because this is a solution of Cisco products, so we can choose below models to build this system:

  1. Cisco Wireless Solution

Now the WiFi 6 access points become more popular, Cisco also provides us its Wifi 6 products, such as Catalyst 9100 aps, etc. However, as the price of Catalyst 9100 is a little high, so we still recommend customer to choose WiFi 5 aps, such as AP2800, AP1800, etc.

Here is the solution:

cisco-wifi-solution-architecture

To lower the cost, here we recommend Fortinet firewall to build the system:
