Cisco Systems Inc. today introduced its Borderless Networks architecture and a five-phase plan designed to help deliver services and applications to anyone, anywhere, on any device, at anytime – seamlessly, reliably, and securely.

 

A key component of the architecture is the second generation of the firm’s Integrated Services Router known as ISR G2, which helps businesses and service providers simplify and scale delivery of on-demand, networked business services such as video and collaborative applications at branch offices.

 

Borderless Networks combines Cisco’s routing, switching, wireless, and security technologies into a more tightly integrated networking infrastructure that allows businesses to embrace the growing use of video, collaborative applications, and other networked services and deliver them across their enterprises.

 

“With business video adoption expected to climb to 77.6% by 2012, and with video proven to play a key role in enabling business innovation and better customer service, the video-ready architecture and new video digital signal processors in the ISR G2 will be key to delivering medianet capabilities essential to the borderless networks experience,” Cisco said in a release.

.

The ISR G2 Services Module comes with up to 1 terabyte of on-board storage, which is useful for video surveillance deployments, and supports up to seven times the performance of previous network modules, the company added.
