Cisco Software Support Service (SWSS)

Your Applications Maximized

Cisco offers a smart, comprehensive way to maximize your investment in Cisco Unified Communications by offering software subscriptions, service, and support. The combination of Cisco Unified Communications Software Subscription and Cisco Unified Communications Essential Operate Service provides you with timely access to Cisco’s latest software updates for major, minor, and maintenance releases, as well as online tools and communities that help you solve issues quickly.

But anyone that has had to try to navigate the maze of license models, Support and Subscription matching, PAK keys, SO#’s or other cryptic and complicated terms will quickly see the benefit of working with a partner that knows the right path.

Why put your application investment in jeopardy by “hoping” that the registrations are in place and will be renewed in time. We know the ins and outs of the process and we have a reliable and tested process to ensure that your system is protected and ready for the patches and upgrades you deserve.
