Cisco Systems has introduced new people-centric innovations aimed at making it easier for people to collaborate anywhere, anytime in the Post PC era.
The innovations, ranging from new desktop and mobile Cisco Jabber collaboration applications to Cisco TelePresence, make it easy for users to move from one collaboration solution to the next based on how they work and their immediate task at hand for example, seamlessly moving from instant messaging to voice to video with the click of a button, the company said at Enterprise Connect in Orlando last week.
The new Jabber and TelePresence offerings, which include a new immersive TelePresence system with optimized collaboration capabilities, are completely integrated, giving customers more mobility options while also extending the reach of their telepresence investments.
Cisco is extending Cisco Jabber to iPad and Windows, building on its Jabber portfolio for Android, iOS, Mac, Blackberry and Cisco Cius. With this development, the equipment giant is enabling Jabber customers to collaborate from anywhere and across the most popular operating systems utilizing high definition video, voice, presence, instant messaging, desktop sharing, conferencing and visual voice mail.
Cisco is also expanding native integration between Jabber and TelePresence, giving mobile users a way to initiate and connect into a TelePresence session whether in the office or on the go.
“Cisco Jabber is an effective tool for addressing the rapid proliferation of mobile devices in workplaces,” said Andy Dignan, senior manager unified communications, CDW. “… The Jabber Web plug-in augments the client offering, letting us embed real-time unified communications and collaboration into our Web-based portal to find product experts, see presence, and click to make voice and video calls in real-time. By embedding UC into our workflow, were increasing productivity which helps us better serve our customers.”
