Cisco Continues Its Leadership in Driving Flexibility and Productivity for Telepresence End Users

Productivity and flexibility are key words that we hear many times in the work place.

What do they mean to IT administrators in relationship to telepresence meeting room scheduling?

Just being connected is not enough to drive the next levels of productivity. So, we need to think beyond connectivity. Read More »
