Cisco extends TelePresence with new Mobile-to-Immersive offer in Africa


Cisco has extended its telepresence with new Mobile-to-Immersive offer for the African continent.

This latest offer, Cisco said would transform how Telepresence is used for high impact meetings, even as it integrates jabber releases for iPad and Windows.

Also, Cisco said is aimed at making it easier for people in Africa and globally to collaborate anywhere, anytime in the post-PC era.

The innovations, ranging from new desktop and mobile Cisco Jabber collaboration applications to Cisco TelePresence systems, make it easy for users to move from one collaboration solution to the next based on how they work and their immediate task at hand, citing for example, moving from instant messaging to voice to video with the click of a button.

A press statement from Public Relations Executive at Cisco, Ms Rose Bambi, quoted Director, Cisco Collaboration Group, Mr. Michael Smith, as saying that in a world that is increasingly mobile, social, visual and virtual, individuals are dictating how, when and where they communicate and collaborate inside and outside of the workplace.

“With today’s TelePresence and mobility announcements, Cisco is continuing to make ‘any device to any device’ a reality, while helping customers collaborate on their own terms on a range of devices that provide a rich and consistent user experience,” he said.

Equally commenting, the acting General Manager for Cisco in Nigeria, Mr. Said Rechchad, said these new Cisco developments came at a time when people increasingly expect freedom of choice in how and where they work, and that includes having access to a variety of integrated collaboration solutions and interoperable endpoints–both hardware and software based.

He pointed out that in Africa, IT managers are looking to provide highly secure, enterprise-class options that enable employees to interact across a broad range of tools whether collaborating via Video, PCs, Macs, tablets, or smart phones – and any standards-based endpoint within and between organizations.”

The new Jabber and TelePresence offerings, he said, include a new immersive TelePresence system with optimized collaboration capabilities, are completely integrated, giving customers more mobility options while also extending the reach of their telepresence investments.
