Can You Hear (And See) Me Now?

Cisco this week held its annual Collaboration Summit in Boca Raton, Florida, where the networking giant unveiled a series of new products in collaboration and unified communications (UC) up.With line a clear focus on helping users - and partners - take advantage of trends like bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the computerization of IT, Cisco launched from the new desk phones to new applications that can combine the best of the devices and business phones.


Here are 6 Cisco collaboration products you don’t want to miss.

Cisco Expressway

In one of several mobility advertisements focused this week, Cisco launched Cisco Expressway, a new generation door that allows users to take advantage of collaboration applications such as Cisco TelePresence Jabber or directly from their mobile devices, without registration in the device level , or a password.

"From the point of view of the user, the real turning point we’re talking about this announcement is the ability to join in the outside [the organization], without having to launch a VPN client add-on", said Chris Wiborg, director, marketing Collaboration Portfolio. "Today, the experience of someone who uses Jabber solution, for example, on your mobile phone you would have to turn something as AnyConnect connect. Made simple, eliminating the need for the VPN."


Instead, Wiborg said, security is handled at the application layer via Transport Layer Security, the same technology that’s widely used to secure e-commerce transactions.

Intelligent Proximity

With a new solution called Smart proximity, Cisco is blurring the boundaries between mobile users and business phones. Proximity smart can be used to transfer all the contact information and call logs from mobile devices of their phones in the office of the users, allowing them, according to Cisco, to make personal calls from their phones without having to dig up the contact information for the first time from their mobile devices.


The piece “proximity” comes into play in a couple of ways. First, users can opt to have updates made to the contact information on their mobile phones automatically transferred to their desk phones, once you are within a certain physical proximity to your desktop. For users who do not want their personal information permanently planted on a desk phone, you can choose to have only the two paired devices when they are physically close to your office phone.

The first Cisco desk phone to support Intelligent Proximity is the Android-based DX650. In the future, however, Cisco plans to add the ability of other endpoints, too.

Jabber Guest

Cisco Jabber expanded its-the presence and voice-video uploaded UC applications, with a new feature called Jabber invited.

On the basis of the safety features Expressway, Guest Jabber allows users to enable access to their business platforms to communicate with people outside your organization, such as a client or business partner. Jabber allows guest users to send a link to external stakeholders through its website, inviting participants to join a call two-way video.


Cisco Jabber said host was built largely with customer service representatives or contact center in mind. A customer service agent, for example, could use Jabber to deliver video chat with consumers directly on your website or your company, and then ask consumers to physically show or what the problem might be.

TelePresence MX300

Cisco also made several changes to his team for collaboration, including the launch of a second generation of TelePresence MX300 endpoint that says it is easier to install and use than its predecessor.

The new MX300 is a 55-inch HD display that supports four-way conference calls, without requiring a separate multipoint control unit (MCU), Cisco said. It also has a dual screen option, which allows users to connect an additional display or monitor.


According to Cisco, the MX300, available in December, is also distinguished by a “modern, sleek” design, and it can be up and running in as little as 15 minutes.

IP Phone 7800 Series

Cisco has expanded its portfolio of mid-market with the IP Phone 7800 Series, a lineup of three new phones Cisco says are ideal for customers who currently use analog or digital phones, but looking to take the leap to IP telephony.


The phones are equipped with high-resolution screen, a choice of 2, 4 or 16 line keys and programmable fixed keys dedicated for functions such as conference calling, messaging or telephone. The IP Phone 7800 Series also takes advantage of Cisco EnergyWise and Power over Ethernet (PoE) Class 1 endpoints, Cisco enables these mobile features to automatically turn off during hours and reduce energy costs by up to 60 percent .

Prime Collaboration

Finally, Cisco has updated its TelePresence Management Console Prime Collaboration to include new features for monitoring and management of not only video but voice applications, Cisco Jabber and Cisco collaboration virtually the entire lineup.


Manager and partner of Cisco Prime Collaboration IT can be used to do anything to implement a provisioning server from a phone on the desk of an end user. You can also take advantage of the platform to get a view of the glass panel in real time what is happening around BYOD and UC.

Cisco is updating its core Internet routers with the CRS-X, a system whose capacity is 10 times that of what CRS stands offered when it was introduced 10 years ago.

The CRS-X, which will be available this year, is a 400Gbps per slot system that can be expanded to nearly petabit the second in a distributed multi-chassis, Cisco says. Up to 72 CRS-X, or the previous generation CRS-3 and CRS-1 can be mixed or matched in configuration Multichassis, according to the company.

CRS Ten thousand were distributed to 750 clients and CRS routing system debuted in 2004, according to Cisco. Existing customers can migrate to the replacement service CRS CRS-X card capacity, according to the company.

Trend growth in global IP traffic requires the CRS-X, says Cisco. Only Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) Global IP traffic is expected to grow three times from 2012-2017, reaching an annual rate of 1.4 zettabytes operation in late 2017, compared to an annual run rate of 522.8 exabytes, to end of 2012

Cisco Preparing to Manufacture New CTR Routers

The CRS-X line cards employ Cisco’s new CPAK CMOS photonic technology, which is designed to reduce power consumption and the cost of sparing. Interfaces on these line cards can be configured for either single port 100GE, 2x40GE, or 10 x10GE or either short-, long-, or extended-reach optics by selecting a specific CPAK transceiver, Cisco says.

A single CRS-X chassis can support up to 64 100G Ethernet links, the company says.

This allows service providers to meet demand for 10G, 40G and 100G Ethernet applications without replacing hardware, Cisco says.
For IP and optical convergence, the CRS-X supports integrated optics or Cisco’s Network Virtualization (nV) optical satellite. The nV configuration allows operators to logically link physical CRS-X chassis with a shared control plane, and then extend system capabilities with remote virtual line cards out to the edge.

The remote virtual line cards are provisioned and managed as distributed line cards of the host CRS-X routers. This allows operators to provision the bandwidth they need with a single management and control plane, Cisco says.
Cisco did not disclose pricing for the CRS-X. It will go up against Juniper’s T4000 and PTX core routing systems and perhaps Alcatel-Lucent’s 7950 XRS.
