Enhance Enterprise Mobile Communications

As the mobile workforce continues to grow, creating a unified mobile workspace becomes increasingly important to ensuring seamless collaboration and business efficiency. The Cisco Unified Communications over WLAN solution delivers more than voice over a Cisco Unified Wireless Network. It provides mobile workers with access to critical information and collaboration tools anywhere across the enterprise campus or branch, while creating a consistent user experience with the right network, the right applications, and the right devices.

Right Network

The right network to meet the requirements of today's mobile workers combines the Cisco Unified Communications infrastructure, which manages multimedia communications processing between endpoints, applications, and voice over IP (VoIP) gateways, with the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, a fully integrated wired and wireless solution that delivers critical features to support unified communications, including:

  • Quality of service
  • Fast secure roaming within a wireless network
  • Battery power management
  • Centralized RF planning and voice optimization tools
  • Cisco Services

Right Device

The right device is the one best suited to the type of work each user does. Mobile workers can choose a Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G or any third-party manufacturer's mobile device such as a dual mode phone or wireless laptop certified through the Cisco Compatible Extensions program.

Right Applications

A unified mobile workspace requires ubiquitous access to the applications a mobile worker needs to be productive. These could include unified messaging, on-demand collaborative conferencing, and presence capabilities or a multimedia client that delivers call control, presence, and directory capabilities from a choice of mobile devices.
