Limited-space office combines innovative design with IP telephony and wireless technologies.

In early 2004 Cisco maintained two offices in Osaka, Japan, with traditional office layouts, limited space for growth, and an increasing number of employees spending time working remotely. The Cisco Workplace Resources and Workplace Effectiveness groups teamed up to consolidate these two offices using a flexible, collaborative, cost-efficient workspace design incorporating IP telephony and wireless mobility technologies.

This case study details the design, technologies, and employee and cost benefits of this innovative work environment, including:

  • Significantly lower real estate costs
  • Improved employee productivity and flexibility
  • Greater employee satisfaction
