BT expands relationship with Cisco

BT has expanded its relationship with Cisco for global conferencing services.

The new programme is designed to enhance BT and Cisco’s joint “Go To Market” strategies, focusing on growth markets, including Asia Pacific and Latin America, as well as strengthening existing business in the US and Europe. It will also increase the choice of services available to BT customers, whatever their location or device.

Building on the strength of BT’s global presence and “One Collaborate” portfolio, which already offers an extensive range of audio, video, web conferencing, streaming services and solutions, BT will be adding a number of new services, including WebEx enabled TelePresence and Cisco Jabber, to its range of products during autumn 2013.

The integration of Cisco Jabber, Cisco’s unified communication (UC) client application, into BT’s Conferencing solutions will be the first of many that integrate UC and conferencing into a simple and easy to use package for customers.

Howard Dickel, CEO, BT Conferencing said, “To compete in the global economy our customers are looking for solutions that allow them to collaborate seamlessly and securely wherever they are and on whatever device they are using.”

“By making collaboration tools more accessible and easier to use, businesses are able to maximise their return on investment and increase productivity whilst retaining flexibility and cost effectiveness,” added Dickel

Scot Gardner, vice president Service Provider EMEAR, Cisco said, “To maximise value to businesses, today’s collaboration products must enhance the connections between people and the information they need to share to improve business productivity. Together, BT and Cisco offer customers flexibility, choice and ease of use, delivering high-quality, fully integrated and highly secure mobile, social, visual, and virtual collaboration solutions to bring people together anytime, anywhere, on any device.”
