This past year, Cisco announced OnPlus, a new managed service to help VARs easily and affordably provide network assessment, management, and advisory services to small business customers. This service provides VARs with a cost-effective, scalable business model for those launching a managed services practice. OnPlus can be used for network surveys and quickly troubleshooting and identifying problems with customers' networks. Because it’s cloud-based, partners can access Cisco OnPlus from anywhere through a browser, smartphone, or tablet, letting them service and manage supported devices conveniently and reliably, whenever, wherever. In April 2012, Cisco expanded its small business product portfolio with new wireless access points, routers, switches, unified communications and partner-managed service offerings. These solutions help drive customer productivity and growth by allowing small businesses to get the most out of smartphones, tablets, and cloud applications and services.
