Cisco Completes Deal for Ubiquisys. What Does This Mean for My Network?

These days, everyone wants a hand in cloud technology. And Cisco has taken a big leap into the cloud market with its latest acquisition, Ubiquisys.

The tech giant recently announced that it has completed the deal to acquire Ubiquisys, a U.K.-based provider of mobile solutions for $310 million in cash and retention-based incentives. It is the latest acquisition for Cisco, who in January purchased self-optimizing network (SON) software provider, Intucell.

Currently, Cisco deals primarily with small-scale wireless equipment on 3G and Wi-Fi networks, as Cisco switches and routers are the company’s bread and butter. But while network hardware equipment is the company’s backbone, Ubiquisys is expected to provide the necessary software that Cisco will need to delve further into the rapidly expanding mobile world. The acquisition is expected to significantly increase Cisco’s network capabilities, and in turn their customer base will grow as a result.

This latest move into the mobile world only serves to bolster Cisco’s reputation as the industry leader in network solutions. With all of the headlines that Cisco has been making recently, you are probably wondering where you can purchase Cisco switches or routers for your organization. And you don’t have to look any further than CXtec to find these products.

CXtec has a wide variety of refurbished Cisco accessories that are guaranteed to speed up, strengthen and organize your network. And it makes more sense to purchase used equipment through CXtec than it does to buy new hardware. This is because new hardware is not thoroughly inspected. While most equipment is occasionally spot checked, you don’t always know what you are getting out of the box. This is one of the leading causes of network hardware failure.

When you buy purchased network equipment such as Cisco phones or Cisco small-form factor pluggables (SFPs) from CXtec, however, you are guaranteed that each product has been refurbished and thoroughly inspected for quality purposes.
