Verizon is Bringing Cisco’s ūmi to FiOS

- October 8, 2010 - 0 Comments

Last week, Cisco introduced Cisco ūmi™ TelePresence, a first-of-its-kind consumer product that brings family and friends together in HD video, whether they are around the corner or across the country.  Cisco ūmi connects to an existing HD television and a broadband internet connection to create a video communications experience that is so clear, natural and lifelike, that users will see and hear their loved ones, right down to the twinkle in their eyes and the tone of their voices, as if they were in the same room.

Cisco is working with Verizon to bring the ūmi experience to Verizon FiOS  customers early next year.  The two companies have been conducting successful trials of Cisco ūmi over Verizon’s 100 percent fiber-optic network, which delivers what a 2010 PCMAG.COM reader’s survey rated the fastest Internet speeds in the United States.

“Like” the Cisco ūmi Facebook Fan Page and enter to win a ūmi system for you and a friend. This offer is valid October 6, 2010 at 9:45AM PST until November 13, 2010 at 11:59PM PST.
