Cisco Collaboration Experience - The Future is Here!

Two years ago Cisco began a journey of reimagining the future of Collaboration. With Cisco undertaking its largest ever refresh of its Collaboration portfolio and announcing significant industry innovations that are priced to scale, the future is now here and will be on show at Cisco Live Melbourne. In the World of Solutions, Cisco will be showcasing its new portfolio, from the next generation immersive TelePresence to the latest in its peerless team collaboration software.

At Cisco Live Melbourne the key focus areas in the World of Solutions will be:

Collaborative Work Spaces**
Technology is transforming who we are able to work with and how we work with them, so it can no longer be considered an afterthought when designing the workplace. At Cisco Live Melbourne, you'll learn how to assess your space for technology and how to incorporate technology into your re-designed workspace, optimise collaborative video technology tools in today's office environments and maximise return on those investments.

The New Meeting Experience - Better than being there**
Strengthen business relationships with Cisco Collaboration Meeting Rooms (CMR). Enable everyone to meet using virtually any device, for a business-quality video collaboration experience that combines video, voice and content sharing technologies. CMR brings together Cisco’s industry-leading video conferencing infrastructure and proven, scalable, WebEx cloud conferencing services to deliver an exceptional meeting experience. With CMR you can host video-optimised meetings, available to anyone, anywhere, on any device.

Our new Project Squared (new name to be announced at Cisco Live Melbourne) is a new innovation from Cisco, built from the ground up for mobile devices. Project Squared is the place teams work together, where their work lives, and how they stay connected to it all. It's like a virtual conference room, created for all your teams with everything everyone needs to do their best work, together. Rooms available for everyone.

Immersive Collaboration - IX5000**
The new IX5000 is a state-of-the-art, triple-screen system that combines high-fidelity audio and video with collaboration functionality for the most vivid immersive collaboration experience today. It is the market’s first single-codec, H.265 triple-screen product.

The IX5000 is efficient, requiring no room remediation and reducing power consumption, installation time, and bandwidth utilisation by 50 percent. The system is designed for high value and flexibility for deployment beyond the boardroom.

MX800 - Simple, affordable and delightful
Cisco is making user experience delightful and collaboration more simple than ever before. Using MX800 in your workplace contributes to making video more accessible. Video places people at the centre of the collaboration experience. It empowers them to work together in new ways to transform business, accelerate innovation, and do more with less. Its next-generation interaction, where everyone, everywhere can be face-to-face and more effective. It’s time to get back to face-to-face.

Contact Centre**
The Contact Centre is often the interface for an organisation with their customer base and heavily impacts their brand and image. The Contact Centre demonstration showcases the Supervisor and Agent experience, how to intelligently manage the omni-channel experience and Cisco’s advanced integrated reporting capabilities.

Multi Channel Customer Interaction
The solution integrates JiveX Online Community with Real Time Analytics and Mobile Advisor to deliver Customer Experience that seamlessly spans the interaction from Social Community to Web Portal to Contact Centre Agent providing 360 degree view of the customer and deep customer insights and enabling innovative collaboration capabilities such as Video, Screen Share/Co-browse and Document Push

Virtual Whiteboard Solution + Customer Experience Solutions**
The Cisco Virtual Whiteboard service is an on premise solution that enables your workforce to collaborate among themselves, or with partners and customers using only a Web browser - no download required. Users can work concurrently and in real time to create, annotate, draw and edit on the whiteboard or on imported content and “sticky notes”.

Application Infrastructure Controller - Enterprise Module
Cisco’s Software Defined Networking (SDN) promises great improvements in network agility, ease of deployment and manageability. Ultimately, it can lower your cost of operations. The key to realising the benefits of SDN is policy model that allows the abstraction of the underlying complexity of network elements. In this model, the controller is responsible for translating business intent (expressed through policy) into network configuration.

Learn how the Cisco APIC Enterprise Module enables a policy based approach to the operation of enterprise networks that extends the policy model from the Data Centre to the end user. Industry experts will share their real-world experiences and demonstrate multiple solutions across the data centre, WAN and access domains as well with third party ecosystem development partners. This will help you formulate your own SDN strategy. The Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC EM) extends Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) to the WAN and access edge. ACI is a holistic architecture for centralised automation of policy-based application profiles. Through programmability, automated network control helps IT rapidly respond to new business opportunities.
