As discussed in one of my previous blogs, more and more companies are deploying premium quality video endpoints in hot desking areas or quiet rooms. Hot desking means I can be at any desk within any location of my organization and make and receive calls using my own personal number and identity. By adding this capability to our video endpoints, Cisco is further supporting the concept that video is becoming the new voice and our customers can now enjoy feature parity between our video endpoints and Cisco Unified Communications IP telephones.
This signature feature is available in the latest software release for EX, MX, SX and C-series Cisco TelePresence Endpoints with TelePresenence Touch. Now you can sign in with your user name and pin to make a Cisco Telepresence endpoint “yours” for the desired period of time.
I strongly believe that user satisfaction and productivity increases by providing access to shared high fidelity collaboration endpoints because I’ve experienced it. That value is now further increased by allowing you to use shared endpoints in a more personalized way from any location within your organization, thus not only increasing the productivity but also the flexibility of your staff.
This is just one more proof point that Cisco is committed to making video the new voice. For inspiration on how to video enable your quiet rooms I strongly recommend you to visit Project Workplace.
What are some ways that you are increasing flexibility within your work place?
