Cisco Extends Mobile Business Solution Portfolio

In an initiative to help enable end-to-end high-performance mobile collaboration, Cisco has announced the latest developments around certifying leading dual-mode mobile devices for its Cisco Unified Wireless Network and Cisco Unified Communications solutions. The Intermec CN3 rugged handheld computer has achieved both certifications, including the Cisco Compatible Extensions Program, and the HP iPAQ 600 Series Business Navigator has begun the certification process.

In addition, Cisco and Nokia, already certified, enhanced the mobile unified communications capabilities of their existing joint solution with the release of Nokia Intellisync Call Connect for Cisco version 1.1 on Nokia Eseries devices by allowing mobile workers to continue an active conversation as they transition from campus Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) to cellular networks.

Cisco’s vision for seamless mobile collaboration focuses on providing customers with a range of solutions that enables real-time access to information and resources at any time or location. With this joint Unified Wireless Network and Unified Communications certification effort, Cisco provides its customers with many choices for enabling collaboration in the workplace through mobile devices, applications, wireless technology, and operating systems that interoperate with the Cisco network platform.

Certifying industry-leading mobile devices highlights Cisco’s ongoing commitment to unify the workspace by anchoring business communications to an intelligent network and connecting multiple mobile workspaces over a wired-wireless infrastructure. The pervasive Cisco network infrastructure helps enable businesses to extend the rich set of Cisco’s collaborative applications to any certified mobile device used by their employees.
