At Cisco Live! Cisco announced new video solutions to further augment its Internet of Everything story.
Cisco defines the Internet of Everything (IoE) as “bringing together people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before-turning information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, individuals, and countries.“ The IoE includes technology solutions that drive productivity, cost optimization, innovation, national development, national security and global resource management for private and public sector entities. IoE solutions are used in both developed and emerging world economies.
Cisco has had a remarkable year in its launch of innovative video communication gear. Earlier this year at Enterprise Connect 2014, Cisco announced a series of new video communications hardware and software that brings high-quality, high-definition, easy-to-install, easy-to-use to enterprises and midsized businesses. Today at Cisco Live! 2014, Cisco announced additional new video communications equipment, in particular a sleek tablet-type device running Android 4.1, that has all the built-in video and collaboration features that one would expect from Cisco. These video solutions work with Cisco’s Business Edition 6000 and Business Edition 7000 series UC platforms, and are therefore good for midsized businesses and midmarket enterprises, as well as large enterprises running Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Unified Communications and Collaboration is one of the key areas of the Internet of Everything. Some upcoming insights from MachNation will illustrate the various technologies, business strategies and engagement models enabled by the Internet of Everything.
