A recent report details Cisco’s changes to its enterprise video conferencing line, including major software revamping. Cisco is really focusing on optimizing/simplifying the user experience as companies increase their use of video conferencing and unified communication (UC) technology. Expect to see more good things from Cisco coming soon!
A new study published by Cisco demonstrates the importance of the Internet to young people (college students). The study found that the Internet is ranked as important to their lives as water, food, air, and shelter.
In addition, two-thirds of students (66 percent) and more than half of employees (58 percent) cite a mobile device (laptop, smartphone or tablet) as “the most important technology in their lives.”
The future of video conferencing and cloud-based services!
“A big congratulations goes out to IVCi. IVCi is consistently one of Cisco’s largest video partners in both bookings and pipeline. IVCi was originally handpicked by Cisco channels for their audio visual expertise. When originally onboarded, IVCi successfully completed the ATP for TelePresence Certification. Now IVCi has taken the next step on their journey. IVCi has become a Master Certified Video TelePresence Partner. ”
“This achievement puts IVCi onto a very short list of partners who have achieved this certification.”

IVCi has just announced that we have earned the TelePresence Video Master Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) partner status from Cisco! This is a huge achievement for IVCi because it represents years of hard work and a significant investment in resources to gain the expertise necessary to meet Cisco’s rigorous requirements for the ATP status.
Cisco now officially recognizes IVCi as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco TelePresence video products and solutions at the Master level. In addition, IVCi brings to the table our unique ability to provide custom telepresence solutions to all of our customers, including GE and Duke University.

Best known for its high-end, immersive systems that are meant to be placed in custom rooms with good lighting and multiple displays, Cisco has broadened its telepresence brand to encompass high-definition video on desktops and smaller units as well. The new Cisco TelePresence MX 200 is designed for use in offices and general-purpose conference rooms.
“It will fit into rooms that aren’t entirely retrofitted,” Thomas Wyatt, Cisco’s vice president of TelePresence Infrastructure, said in an interview. Further, the product is designed for easy assembly and automatic provisioning on the network “so you can be making your first call in 15 minutes, and it does not require an AV or IT technician to get it up and running,” Wyatt said.
