Mobile Collaboration

Make Collaboration Simple

Work anytime, anywhere, on any device. See the benefit of rich interactive experiences. (1:56 min)

Collaboration should be as simple and effective outside the organization as it is inside the organization. Cisco collaboration solutions provide native support for all leading smartphones, tablets, and laptops in a highly secure, policy-controlled manner.

Make it easier for employees to use personal or company-issued mobile devices as an extension of your enterprise network and applications. Provide a consistent, simple, productive user experience anywhere, anytime, to anyone using any workload on any device.

Mobility Beyond BYOD

Mobility is about much more than a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environment. It is an opportunity to extend the benefits of rich media collaboration outside the corporate office on any device, anywhere, so employees are as effective and productive as they are inside the office.

Organizations can provide a highly secure, fully featured desk or mobile client with all the Cisco collaboration workloads. This includes high-definition voice and video, messaging, and desktop sharing to mobile users anywhere on any device. Organizations can also provide the same capabilities for multi-point meetings.

The rapid evolution of mobile technology has changed the workspace. The focus is often on devices, but the true value is in what devices can make possible, such as:

  • Improved productivity and employee engagement
  • Reduced costs
  • Rapid innovation

Explore how you can support your organization's business goals with use cases that bring together collaboration and mobility.

Cisco makes these services simple to deploy and more secure for IT. We offer a single integrated architecture that allows mobile Jabber clients and remote endpoints to register directly to Cisco Unified Communications Manager environments.

We provide the choice of security as well. Use a full VPN client or provide a session-based security model (TLS) to secure applications and media on mobile devices or remote fixed endpoints. This helps users access applications across a range of devices easily and efficiently.

Cisco supports the broadest set of use cases so that people can be as productive outside the office as they in the office. With Cisco solutions you can collaborate anytime, anywhere, on any device using any workload.

Executing and decision making typically involve many people, in many different places. Now you can work across multiple platforms and devices, on premises or in the cloud, with the same collaboration capabilities and experiences that you have in the office. These capabilities include:

  • Web conferencing and videoconferencing
  • Voice
  • Video
  • Other capabilities such as directory access or visual voicemail
