How Are You Staying Connected this Mother’s Day?

May 12, 2013 at 2:51 pm PST

Many of us will take a moment today -- or even the entire day -- to let the special women in our lives know how much they mean to us.  This appreciation will likely come in the form of gifts or flowers, while others will simply send a card or make a phone call. But imagine how much more it would mean to that special lady who may not be able to spend the day with you in person to connect with you over video and see your smiling face.

As a mother of two, I find myself looking forward to this day every year. Why? This is the day where mothers from around the country get their much due recognition. It is a day where putting a personal touch on your communication is not only appreciated but deserved. Don’t believe me? These celebrities know what I’m talking about. They took the time to tell the world how their moms inspired them with  a video message. How awesome is that?

I agree with this approach to Mother’s Day – use video! Forget a greeting card or phone call -- not to say those aren’t better than completely forgetting -- but it’s time to add a more personal element to Mother’s Day, and that’s what video does. So, from my kids to you, Happy Mother’s Day!

I’m sure moms everywhere will approve…I know I do!

Delivering a More Efficient and Effective Telepresence Experience With TC6.1

Recently at Enterprise Connect 2013, Tony Intrabartolo, Managing Engineer, Cisco TelePresence and Collaboration, and Richard Hayes, Technical Marketing Manager, Collaboration Endpoints, teamed up to discuss the Cisco TelePresence TC 6.1 software update.

TC 6.1 adds the entire portfolio of capabilities announced in the TE 6.0 software update to the C, SX, MX and Profile Series. These features include message waiting indicator, shared line support, single number reach and enhanced conferencing, which are enabled by the Cisco Unified Call Manager 8.6.2 release. This means Cisco TelePresence users will have a consistent experience and access to a broader set of capabilities, including all features in CUCM, across the entire Cisco TelePresence product line, from multipurpose to personal units.

Check out the video below to see Tony and Richard discuss some common scenarios and business benefits these new features offer and how they would play out in an average work day. For example, your Cisco TelePresence endpoint (EX, MX or SX Series) can now be one of the devices where you can be reached through your phone number or even through your Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). The result is a seamless telepresence experience no matter where you are or what technology you are using.

Deploying video or collaboration? The network is your best friend!

May 2, 2013 at 9:57 am PST

If you are deploying or managing video and collaboration applications, you might have realized that providing good quality experience for users can quickly become complex and costly as you deploy so many different applications and endpoints from different vendors at the same time in the same infrastructure.

The figure below compares voice and video applications. As you can see, the characteristics of voice applications are very consistent when compared with the different video applications. Different video applications have different bandwidth requirements; traffic is bursty, unpredictable and highly compressed and often available in a variety of form factors from different vendors.
