A New Paradigm for Desktop Collaboration

April 9, 2013 - 0 Comments

Market trends are impacting how we collaborate. A key trend is the need for pervasive video delivered to every desktop, so that all users can benefit from rich interactions. A second important trend is towards cloud services, the ability to deploy and access services and applications from the cloud.

These trends are truly driving a new paradigm in desktop collaboration, and Cisco is leading this industry evolution with our recent announcement of the Cisco Desktop Collaboration Experience DX650. This new Android-based desktop endpoint – our next-generation IP phone – delivers Cisco’s entire suite of collaboration capabilities through an intuitive touch screen. It combines two things we all know and love, specifically the always on, reliable, quality audio and video communications of our desk phone with the ease-of-use and robust functionality of our smartphone.  The Cisco DX650 makes it easy to collaborate, like starting a Cisco WebEx meeting from your calendar without jumping from app to app. And since WebEx is a cloud based application, you can access it on this device from your home or office. The DX650 is cloud ready.

Watch this video filmed at Enterprise Connect 2013 in Orlando, Florida, to learn more about what was announced and the market trends I speak of above, plus discover my favorite feature.

How will you use the DX650 to realize the new paradigm of desktop collaboration? Let me know your thoughts.
