Twcbc Offers Service To Manage Cisco Routers

Cisco patches vulnerabilities in small business routers and wireless LAN controllers | PCWorld

Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) has begun offering Managed Router Services (MRS), a service in which it will install Cisco routers at customer sites and then maintain them. By partnering with Cisco on the MRS program, TWCBC can offer its subscribers managed services for WAN connectivity, security and other services and technologies. TWCBC assumes responsibility for provisioning, configuration, change management, monitoring and remote operations of a customers Internet and wide area network services. The Managed Router Services offering includes: TWCBC provided router(s) at the customer premise(s) Configuration, management, and 24/7 monitoring of the router by TWCBC A customer portal to view performance of the service and request service changes Options to bundle with Internet service, including Firewall, IPS/IDS, Remote VPN, NAT/PAT, etc. Options to bundle with Ethernet service, including WAN connection management, QoS tagging, VLAN management, bandwidth profile management, etc. Multiple router size options to meet specific customer bandwidth needs High Availability (HA) options for mission critical environments Cisco is pleased to partner with Time Warner Cable and assist it in the delivery of its managed services portfolio, said Jeffrey Spagnola, vice president, cloud and managed services, Cisco. The growing complexity of data networks, combined with the proliferation of Internet security threats, has required businesses to spend increasing amounts of time managing their networks.

A vulnerability found in the web management interface of the Cisco RV110W Wireless-N VPN Firewall, RV215W Wireless-N VPN Router and CVR100W Wireless-N VPN Router can be exploited by an unauthenticated, remote attacker to gain administrative access to the affected devices. "The vulnerability is due to improper handling of authentication requests by the web framework, Cisco said in a security advisory published Wednesday. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by intercepting, modifying and resubmitting an authentication request. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could give an attacker administrative-level access to the web-based administration interface on the affected device. Cisco assigned an impact score of 10 to the vulnerabilitythe highest in the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)because the flaw can lead to a complete compromise of a devices confidentiality, integrity and availability. Users are advised to update the firmware of the affected devices because there are no available workarounds. The patched firmware versions are: Cisco CVR100W Wireless-N VPN Router firmware version, Cisco RV110W Wireless-N VPN Firewall firmware version and Cisco RV215W Wireless-N VPN Router firmware version Cisco also fixed five denial-of-service vulnerabilities and one unauthorized access vulnerability in the software running on a wide range of its stand-alone and modular wireless LAN controllers. The affected products are: Cisco 500 Series Wireless Express Mobility Controllers, Cisco 2000 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Cisco 2100 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Cisco 2500 Series Wireless Controllers, Cisco 4100 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Cisco 4400 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Cisco 5500 Series Wireless Controllers, Cisco Flex 7500 Series Wireless Controllers, Cisco 8500 Series Wireless Controllers, Cisco Virtual Wireless Controller, Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series/7600 Series Wireless Services Module (Cisco WiSM), Cisco Wireless Services Module version 2 (WiSM2), Cisco NME-AIR-WLC Module for Integrated Services Routers (ISRs), Cisco NM-AIR-WLC Module for Integrated Services Routers (ISRs), Cisco Catalyst 3750G Integrated WLC and Cisco Wireless Controller Software for Services-Ready Engine (SRE). The denial-of-service vulnerabilities can be exploited by sending specially crafted IGMP version 3 messages, MLD version 2 packets, ethernet 802.11 frames and WebAuth login requests to the affected devices. The attacks can force the affected devices to restart or can result in more persistent denial-of-service conditions, depending on the vulnerability being exploited. The unauthorized access vulnerability is located in code that Cisco wireless LAN controllers send to other access point devices connected to them.

Various elements of this family are coming to market now including Top of Rack (ToR) switches and End of Row (EoR) platforms. We expect the release of the Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) in the coming months to further catalyze evaluation activity. Cisco has employed several design elements in the switch refresh. In contrast to Robisons warnings about the cloud, Leopold sees Cisco as a big beneficiary of data center build-out: When looking at the forecasted growth rates, it becomes evident for any vendor that datacenter exposure will beimportant to achieving growth above the market. In comparison to the overall switch market, the outlook for purpose-built datacenter switches is significantly more robust, with Infonetics forecasting growth of 24.8% and 13.5% for purpose-built datacenterswitches in 2014 and 2015 respectively, compared to the overall Ethernet switch growth of 5.9% and 8.1% respectively. Ciscosdatacenter interconnect switch is its Nexus 7000, and its new Nexus 9000 provides the evolution from the Nexus 5000 and Nexus2000. Heres a table Leopold offers of Ciscos opportunities in the data center with the 9000: Leopold doesnt believe rumors of Cisco cutting prices: Weve heard noise regarding Ciscos pricing strategy with some believing Cisco is reducing prices. We believe that the cost per bit processed is declining, which is normal; however, we do not believe Cisco is slashing pricing on an apples-to-apples basis. He believes Cisco can benefit from improving macro trends: A macroeconomic recovery bodes well for Cisco; we consider the forecast for improved employment as a favorable indicator, yet the slow pace of an economic recovery and poor employment remain headwinds, as do concerns about government debt both here and abroad.
