Top 20 CISCO Solution Companies - 2020

To meet the insatiable demand of the fast-evolving world, innovations are made within a blink of the eye. As networking trends evolve rapidly, it is becoming imperative that software companies embrace them to stay relevant and steer ahead of the competition. For instance, to meet the growing demands for enhanced cellular speed, reduced latency, and improved flexibility of wireless services, the fifth generation of mobile technology or 5G is making its way into 2020. Cisco is playing a crucial role in empowering enterprises globally by effectively merging the next generation of cellular and WiFi technologies with best-of-breed hardware and software. Cisco's 5G offerings enable enterprises to mobilize their workforces further, extend automation, and support new applications, through higher data rates and increased network capacity.

Also, by virtue of being one of the largest market shareholders in B2B areas such as the network, security, cloud, analytics, and collaboration, Cisco is driving the AI-ML innovation by a holistic perspective toward driving business outcomes. Cisco employs ML to analyze vast amounts of network data–from telemetry to traffic patterns–and identifies anomalies and optimal network configurations. Cisco is thereby reinventing networking with the network intuitive and enabling an intent-based, self-driving, self-healing network. Cisco is also empowering the AR/VR mainstream applications by making a leap from nascent technologies to comprehensive solutions that facilitate several enterprise applications and enhance the customer experience.
