Parts of Cisco.com inaccessible for most of Monday

Company yet to determine cause of problem

Cisco late Monday confirmed that it is still experiencing problems with its Cisco.com Web site, portions of which have been inaccessible to customers and visitors for most of the day.

NetworkWorld readers began reporting problems accessing Cisco.com at around 11:15 a.m. ET Monday. At 1:35 p.m. Cisco issued this statement: "Earlier this morning, Cisco.com experienced some issues that impacted access to certain applications on the site. Currently, Cisco.com is accessible and we are in the process of conducting a thorough investigation to determine the cause and full impact. We thank our customers, partners and other site users for their patience."

Although visitors have been able to access Cisco.com, portions of the site remained inaccessible throughout the day, including Cisco Connection Online (CCO) Cisco's primary real-time support channel, and Service Contract Center (SCC), according to postings by NetworkWorld.com readers responding to this Network World Cisco Subnet blog item.

The problem still remained unresolved at 8:28 p.m., when a Cisco spokesperson, responding to a request from Network World for an update, commented: "No substantial update yet. We are still working the problem. Thank you for the updates from your readers."

Cisco.com suffered a near-3-hour outage in August which Cisco said was caused "by an accident during maintenance of a San Jose data center that resulted in a power outage in that facility."

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
