More about Cisco:

PEAK specializes in Cisco’s key products including Enterprise Networking, Data Centers and Unified Computing Systems (UCS), and Security.

Cisco Enterprise Networking:

Enterprise Networking denotes the IT infrastructure that midsize and large organizations use to provide connectivity among users, devices, and applications. The goal is to support the organizations’ objectives by consistently delivering connected digital services reliably and securely to workers, partners, customers, and increasingly, also things.

Enterprise Networking Architecture:

  • Campus, branch, and Internet of Things (IoT): These networks provide fixed and mobile access to users and things. They are present in all areas of an organization, both in offices and in operational spaces such as manufacturing and warehouse facilities. These networks are optimized for transparent, secure access and high density.
  • Data center and hybrid clouds: These networks connect to and among applications, workloads, and data, within on-premises data centers and private and public cloud services. They’re optimized for low latency, security, and mission-critical reliability.
  • Wide-area networks (WANs): These networks connect facilities, buildings, or campuses to other branches, to data centers, or to cloud resources. They’re optimized for user experience and bandwidth efficiency

Key Features & Benefits of Cisco Enterprise Networking

  • Always-On Connectivity: A well-designed enterprise network provides the proper connectivity for all users, things, devices, and applications present in an organization.
  • Optimized User Experience: Utilizes proactive network optimization for faster issue resolution, and traffic navigation, while ensuring security and privacy
  • Readiness for Digital Transformation: Designed to support digital initiatives needed to quickly adapt to rapidly evolving needs, including expansion, scaling, growth, and introduction of new services.
  • Easier Network Management: Network management tools such as network controllers give administrators the ability to set access rules and permissions for users and departments, add new users or functions easily, monitor performance, and take corrective action, all from a central interface.
  • Enhanced Security: Enterprise networks act as a primary detector of threats while enforcing security compliance. It does so with device identification, profiling, verification, network monitoring, authentication, access controls, segmentation, and device and account management.
  • Seamless Cloud Integration: Enterprise networks provide seamless connectivity between users and cloud applications to meet growing demands. They also optimize workloads between on-premises locations and public clouds.

Data Center and Unified Computing System (UCS)

Cisco UCS brings together computing, networking, and storage, all in a single system to power any application. The UCS platform covers servers, fabric interconnects and adapters, and additional management platforms.

Cisco’s UCS Servers offer powerful options to maximize workloads for any business.

  • UCS X-Series Modular System: The X-Series offers blade chassis efficiency, rack server flexibility, and cloud operations. The X-Series brings more compute, GPU, storage, and memory.
  • UCS B-Series Blade Servers: The B-Series work hand in hand with Cisco Intersight to deploy and run virtualized and non-virtualized applications. The result is better performance and operational efficiency.
  • UCS C-Series Rack Servers: The C-Series takes on all of your workload challenges using cloud-based management with Cisco Intersight for simpler, smarter, and more agile computing.
  • UCS S-Series Storage Server: Activate your data and insights in real-time with this modular, high-availability, storage-optimized server.

Cisco’s Fabric Interconnects and Fabric Extenders unify computing, networking, and management resources into one cohesive system for UCS servers. Cisco’s Adaptors add Flexibility and choice to meet any workload with VICs and leading vendor adapters, GPUs, and more.

Cisco Intersight IT operations platform exists as a managed service to deliver reliable digital products, services, and experiences fast when you operate your compute, storage, and networking infrastructure—securely—from one place.


  • Retrieve data faster: Deliver data at scale while maintaining high performance, low latency, and managed data access with limited to no downtime.
  • Reduce silos: Consolidate more data and workloads on one platform capable of running at the edge, on-premises, and in cloud environments.
  • Improve collaboration: Share data and workloads with the right people at the right time to increase workforce productivity, reduce copies, and improve resource utilization.
  • Simplify operations: Centralize data and application services by managing them on a single, scalable platform that integrates with existing IT investments.
  • Optimize costs: Reduce application and data sprawl with a unified, flexible storage platform that scales up/down and in/out without compromising performance.
  • Reduce risk: Safeguard applications and data and recover quickly from breaches and attacks with integrated security and ransomware protection capabilities.


Cisco offers a wide variety of security products to ensure protection is guaranteed. Through the acquisition of many companies, Cisco’s security portfolio continues to grow with the latest and greatest technologies to secure a business’s data. Some of the main companies within Cisco’s security line up are:

Meraki: The Cisco Meraki MX are multifunctional security and SD-WAN enterprise appliance with a wide set of capabilities to address multiple use cases–from an all-in-one device. Organizations of all sizes and across all industries rely on the MX to deliver secure connectivity to hub locations or multi-cloud environments, as well as application quality of experience (QoE), through advanced analytics with machine learning.

Secure Email Threat Defense: A comprehensive solution for the #1 threat vector. Secure Email Threat Defense with Cisco can identify malicious techniques, understand specific business risks, categorize threats to gain insight, search threat analysis data, and simplify workflows. Secure Email Threat Defense leverages machine learning to detect potential brand abuse by labeling threats for security analysis to decipher the risk.

Duo: Verify users’ identities, gain visibility into every device, and enforce adaptive policies to secure access to every application. Duo works as a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) which has a zero-trust policy that uses an additional device for sign-on, added device visibility, secure single sign-on (SSO), and secure remote access.

Cisco Umbrella: Cisco Umbrella offers flexible, cloud-delivered security. It combines multiple security functions into one solution, so you can extend data protection to devices, remote users, and distributed locations anywhere. Umbrella is the easiest way to effectively protect your users everywhere in minutes.

Cisco Secure EndPoint: Secure EndPoint scales the growing network surface, remote networks, and devices. Cisco Secure EndPoint unifies user and endpoint protection along with Cisco SecureX added in. Cisco offers three different plans: Secure EndPoint Essentials, Secure EndPoint Advantage, and Secure EndPoint Premier.
