Add value by speeding up the pace of your business with Cisco TelePresence.

To increase productivity and take full advantage of all your existing video endpoints, Cisco TelePresence uses open standards, such as Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), H.323, and H.264. This provides interoperability across the Cisco portfolio and with standards-based videoconferencing and telepresence endpoints.

Interoperability also incorporates video products such as Cisco WebEx, Cisco Cius, and other collaboration applications.

Active Role in Standards Bodies

Our commitment to standards facilitates any-to-any interoperability. Cisco is actively engaged with standards bodies, such as the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), in shaping open standards development, interoperability testing, and contributing to open source projects. Cisco helps promote the evolution of these standards to support the changing needs of customers.

Now you can preserve your existing investments while realizing the benefits of Cisco TelePresence and helping your organization enjoy true, any-to-any collaboration capabilities.
