Cisco Plans More Software Centres in Asia, Europe

The centers will initially focus on enhancements to Cisco's IOS network systems software, including both new features and technologies for use in the company's global networking products as well as in support of more regional market needs, Cisco said in a statement.

In addition to software development, Cisco said it also plans to use the facilities for large-scale, end-to-end system testing to speed time-to-market deployment of new products for customers in each region. Further details about the planned new facilities were not available.

In other news, Cisco has also announced the launch of software upgrades for its IP (Internet protocol)--based IP/VC 3500 videoconferencing product family. Version 2.0 of the software is designed to offer customers improved functionality and better audio and video quality, Cisco said in a statement.

Current IP/VC 3500 product users on SMARTnet contracts can download the 2.0 upgrades with new features for the gateway and video terminal adapter for free from the company's Web site, Cisco said. The upgraded version of the software with new multipoint control unit features will be available within 90 days.

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.
