Cisco Embraces iPad, iPhone for Collaboration

Cisco is driving ahead with its efforts to rev up enterprise collaboration. Now it’s talking up ways to integrate the Apple iPad and iPhone into its Cisco Quad enterprise collaboration offering, which is due out later this year. It’s also showcasing other areas in which enterprises can take advantage of the iPad and iPhone, along with enhancements to WebEx and its upcoming Prosumer Video offering.

Those are all key areas for Cisco, which is not just working to solidify the enterprise networking hardware and management space, but also the collaboration and communications applications that run over those networks. Datamation takes a look.

Enterprise collaboration continues to be a major focus for networking giant Cisco, which on Friday announced new features for its yet-to-be-released Quad enterprise collaboration offering that roll in new enhancements targeting users of Apple’s iPhone and iPad. Cisco also unveiled an enhanced WebEx conferencing platform and a cloud storage system that integrates with the iPhone, iPad and Cisco’s own Flip MinoPro camcorder.

Cisco calls Quad an “immersive platform” for enterprise collaboration that integrates voice, video and social networking into one space.
