Deliver the best wireless connection for your mobile employees. As people using an iPhone or iPad roam on campus, we enable their iOS devices to intelligently communicate and connect to the best-suited access point, quickly and efficiently while saving on battery, too. We're also simplifying deployments for IT, so employees get a reliable, consistent app experience, and IT can focus on the business.
Your employees rely on mobile devices to get work done. And they are using them for more than just work, so your business apps compete on network resources with, say, leisure apps. With the release of iOS 10, IT will have full control and be able to make sure the most critical apps to your business are automatically prioritised on your network, even when it is congested with other traffic.
Real-time communication is integral to business. And now more than ever that means messaging, meetings, and calling from your mobile device. This fall when iOS 10 is made available, you can take advantage of the deep integration between Cisco Spark and iOS 10 on iPhone and iPad. More than an app, Cisco Spark is a complete collaboration and service offering from the Cisco collaboration cloud.
Cisco Spark provides voice and video capabilities and will use new iOS APIs to directly integrate with iPhone. This gives your users a native experience when they make calls on iPhone. They can tap a contact in their address book, favorites, or recents and instantly make an enterprise voice or video call. They can also answer Cisco Spark calls right from the Lock screen, use connected headsets, and take advantage of call waiting to switch between calls whether they're on Cisco Spark or cellular. It's a collaboration experience designed for the enterprise.
The iOS 10 release means you can now take advantage of the joint solutions of Apple and Cisco. Our SVP and GM Rowan Trollope explains the path here, benefits like 8X faster roaming, and how this is just the beginning of the beginning for business communication.
SVP Jeff Reed explains how iOS and Cisco devices recognise each other, which then turns on Wi-Fi optimisation and app prioritisation.
VP/CTO Jonathan Rosenberg explains how iPhone users benefit from the mashup of native calling and VoIP calling in iOS 10.
