Cisco is trying to expand its small business market dominance with a new, clumsily-titled, Business Communications Solution range.

Launching the product, European head of marketing for the section, Neil Walker, said the routing, switching, Wi-Fi and VPN products were "smart, simple and secure”".

The new product line will support Cisco Network Assistant, the GUI-based installation tool that was introduced late last year. He added that the use of a GUI tool would considerably cut down on the time needed to manage the products: "One click of the mouse replaces 30 lines of CLI code."

Cisco is also introducing a new version of Cisco CallManager Express. Express 3.3 offers conferencing for 20 to 96 users, improves call routing and queuing capabilities and increases security.
