Cloud Networking

Is the cloud the way forward for business?

In principle, yes. It is cost-effective, easy to use and so accessible that it makes doing business on the move a doddle.

Does that mean you should move your business to The Cloud? Not necessarily.

At CMC we like to look before we leap and we can help you to do the same. There are hundreds of ways to connect your people, your customers and your data, so our job is to find the way that works the best for your business.

Get the right connectivity in the right place

It’s about taking a joined-up view of how your business operates and getting the right connectivity in place to make it work even better. We call it ‘cloud-ready infrastructure’ because it’s about getting the foundations right, whether you’re ready to move your business into The Cloud or not. We can present you with the best broadband options for your business, selecting from a range of leading suppliers to ensure your business can stay connected in the most reliable and affordable way.

We’ll look at your call patterns, the type of data you’re using and how much of it you have, then we’ll pinpoint where the connectivity issues are.

What is cloud networking?

Cloud Networking provides centralized management, visibility, and control without the cost and complexity of controller appliances or overlay management software.

Cisco Meraki products are built from the ground up for cloud management, and come out of the box with centralized management, layer 7 device and application visibility, real time web-based diagnostics, monitoring, reporting, and much, much more. Cisco Meraki deploys quickly and easily, without training or proprietary command line interfaces.

How it works

  1. Reliable, high-performance Cisco Meraki wireless APs, switches, and security appliances are deployed in your office or remote branches.

  2. Cisco Meraki devices automatically connect to the Cisco Meraki cloud over SSL, register with your network, and download their configuration

  3. You have complete visibility and control over your entire network over the web. Configure thousands of devices, run diagnostics, or view reports with a few clicks.

  4. Tasks such as RF optimization and VPN configuration are automated by the cloud, while firmware updates and application signatures are seamlessly deployed over the web.
