The new products are particularly useful for remote office or home office workers who need access to corporate LANs, intranets, or to the Internet itself.
The new members of Cisco's 760 Ethernet-to-ISDN router line--the 761 and 762--include ClickStart, a Web-based configuration tool that lets users complete the initial installation of the router. Users can also configure the new routers via telephone or a Microsoft Windows-based application.
The Cisco 761 and 762 routers are available now at prices starting at $599. Cisco also announced 25 to 40 percent reductions on the entire 760 product line.
