Xerox and Cisco Form Strategic Alliance

The new partnership enables channel partners to sell managed print services over intelligent network infrastructures.

Xerox and Cisco have formed an alliance to deliver cloud-based services and technology that combine network intelligence and print capabilities. The alliance brings Xerox’s managed print and cloud IT outsourcing services to customers over Cisco’s intelligent network infrastructure. Both Xerox’s and Cisco’s channel partners will be armed with products from both companies, enabling a new kind of managed print product combined with network capabilities for customers.

This alliance will enable such products as:

  • Xerox Managed Print Services (MPS) over Cisco Borderless Networks – Consolidates IT and print management using the network’s embedded security, WAN optimization and IOS software. This monitors print activity 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 – Helps customers accelerate the deployment of new IT services and reduce IT costs through a private, public, or hybrid cloud environment. The cloud services from ACS, a Xerox Company, include Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IAAS), cloud consulting services, and private cloud deployments.
  • Xerox Mobile Print on Cisco virtual desktop clients and Cisco Cius – Allows mobile workers to securely print business documents from any email-enabled device, including Cisco virtual desktop clients and Cisco Cius tablets, to any enabled printer. Using Cisco Borderless Networks and wireless LAN products, the mobile printing from email-enabled devices is reliable and connects seamlessly from any location.

According to Cisco CEO John Chambers, the alignment of the two companies allows channel partners to grow revenue by building cloud services. The Xerox private and public cloud services, including IaaS, private cloud environments, and MPS, are available for limited availability to Cisco channel partners. Xerox channel partners can take advantage of Cisco Smart Services, such as Cisco Smart Care, to support customers’ networks.
