Cisco has introduced Wi-Fi 6 for Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs), the latest addition to its portfolio of products built for small businesses.
The product showcases the best of Cisco’s innovation, reliability, and security without the complexity required by larger networks.
Mohamad Sabra, SMB Leader, Cisco Middle East and Africa, said: “Across the Middle East, countries are continuing to make great strides towards economic diversification and development. A common trend is the need to foster SMBs as engines of long-term growth. Methods don’t work with technology, especially our customers. That’s why at Cisco, we offer solutions that are right for SMBs and that are easy to buy, install and manage yourself. Our solutions can also be delivered by customer base provided by a vast network of partners.”
According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), small and medium enterprises dominate the business landscape in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region. These businesses account for more than 90 percent of businesses in the region and, in some countries, contribute 50 percent of employment and 70 percent of GDP. To enable new opportunities for SMBs through technology, the Cisco Business Wireless portfolio enables customers to enjoy the benefits of upgrading to Wi-Fi 6, including:
More available throughput and faster device speeds enable new applications and customer experiences. 4k video is the standard, from immersive streaming content to social media, and business collaboration and conferencing tools that enable face-to-face in the new hybrid world.
high density performance
By 2022, an average household of two teenagers will have around 50 connected devices, including many IoT devices, from sensors to smart appliances (according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the OECD). Before Wi-Fi 6, dense networks would suffer from collisions, so network performance would suffer, but now this is a thing of the past. Business owners rely on Cisco for secure and reliable solutions to take the headaches out of IT.
Wi-Fi 6 improves efficiency by reducing the battery burden on connected Wi-Fi devices. Target wake time lets the access point schedule when to send packets to connected clients, and the device can enter a low power mode when not in use. Devices can achieve improvements of up to 67%. — trade arab news agency
