Cisco Quad Integrates Voice, Video and Social into one Workspace

Cisco introduced a "Quad" immersive platform for enterprise collaboration that integrates voice, video and social networking into one workspace.

With Cisco Quad, workers have the ability to search across all content within their organization, as well as locate people and expertise. Specifically, Quad integrates with content management systems such as Microsoft SharePoint and Documentum, as well as with voice and video business communications solutions including Cisco Unified Communications, Cisco WebEx conferencing, Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Show and Share.

Cisco will also offer Mobile Quad applications optimized for the Apple iPad and iPhone.

Cisco Quad is currently in trials and is expected to be available on a limited basis, beginning in Cisco's first quarter of fiscal year 2011.

In addition, Cisco is releasing a new WebEx Connect IM app that lets users access their contact lists and send instant messages via a browser-based IM client, making the solution accessible from any computer, with any operating system, without the need for a client download. There is also a business-class four-hour Flip MinoPRO camcorder.
