Cisco IT extended video-conference room capabilities to the desktop without replacing the existing video-conference room infrastructure by deploying Cisco Unified Video Advantage as a desktop video-conferencing application for all employees. Cisco Unified Video Advantage allows employees to place and receive video calls on the IP telephony network without any extra button-pushing or mouse-clicking. Conducting a video conference is as simple as making a phone call.

Benefits of desktop video conferencing include:

  • Increases employee productivity through enhanced, more efficient, communications
  • Enables employees to collaborate face to face with each other in real time without leaving their desks
  • Allows employees at their desks to communicate with existing H.323 video-conferencing systems and available conferencing services through dial-plan integration
