Combining network intelligence and print management
Today Xerox and Cisco announced their intention to form an alliance to simplify IT management by delivering cloud-based services and technology solutions that combine network intelligence and printing.

Their plans include bringing Xerox's market-leading managed print and cloud IT outsourcing (ITO) services to customers over Cisco's intelligent network infrastructure.  Both companies will support channel partners with solutions that help businesses extend their existing IT investments while improving performance and reducing costs.

The potential outcome of the alliance between Xerox and Cisco could allow IT applications to be even more accessible, while improving their efficiency with solutions such as the ability to print from any device, anytime, anywhere.

Xerox and Cisco announced that they are collaborating to deliver the following solutions:

Xerox Managed Print Services (MPS) over Cisco Borderless Networks consolidates IT and print management using the network's embedded security, WAN optimization, and Internetwork Operating System (IOS) software. The combined solution monitors print technology and reduces operating costs, protects confidential data from any location, and improves employee productivity with advanced mobile and cloud printing applications.

Xerox Cloud ITO Services built on Cisco UCS and Vblock infrastructure help customers accelerate the rollout of new IT services, so they can better  respond to changing needs of the workforce and reduce IT costs through a private cloud, the public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment. These cloud services from ACS, A Xerox Company include infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), cloud consulting services, and private cloud deployments.

Xerox Mobile Print Solution on Cisco virtual desktops clients and Cisco Cius allows mobile workers to securely print business documents from any email-enabled device – including Cisco virtual desktops clients and Cisco Cius business tablets – to any enabled printer, using Cisco Borderless Networks and Wireless LAN solutions for reliable and seamless connectivity from any location.

The announced services, including IaaS, private cloud environments, and MPS, have been released for limited availability to Cisco channel partners.
