In order to update the Collaborative computing space, Cisco is making presence and instant messaging (IM) capabilities and Cisco Jabber clients available to all Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) customers globally at no additional cost.
Cisco believes that together: IM, voice and video call control provide the foundation for real-time communications.
For customers, Cisco is now providing a way to simply and cost effectively make presence and IM available to all users across a plethora of devices — including Windows, Mac, iPad, Cisco Cius, iPhone, Blackberry, and Android (later in 2012).
For partners, this helps simplify and accelerate the deployment of presence, IM and mobile collaboration as part of a holistic, best-in-class, collaboration solution.
"We feel presence and IM are the starting points of collaboration, not the final destination," Barry O'Sullivan, SVP of Cisco's Voice Technology Group.
