Cisco Jabber: Move Over, Microsoft Skype?
April 2, 2012 | Hogan Keyser
During recent WebEx meeting between The VAR Guy and Richard McLeod, senior director of business development at Cisco Systems, McLeod could barely contain his enthusiasm.
The discussion involved:
- Cisco extending its Jabber collaboration portfolio to the Apple iPad and Windows. Jabber, a potential Skype alternative, already was available for Android, iPhone, Mac, BlackBerry and Cisco Cius tablets. Jabber supports presence, instant messaging (IM), voice, video, voice messaging, and conferencing.
- Cisco introducing the TelePresence TX9000 Series. It's basically the fusion of Cisco and Tandberg technologies. Compared to Cisco's previous TelePresence systems, the T9000 requires 20 percent less bandwidth and partners can deploy the system in half the time of previous systems, McLeod said. The $299,000 system is roughly the same price as previous Cisco options, but offers far more capabilities and a lower total cost of ownership.
