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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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