Improve Productivity with Collaboration Technology
Cisco Collaboration classified into 4 main categories
1.Unified Communication
2.Customer care
3.Conferencing
4.Collaboration Endpoints  

Unified communication:
Cisco Unified Communications (UC) is an IP-based communications system integrating voice, video, data, and mobility products and applications. It enables more effective, secure communications and can transform the way in which we communicate. UC represents a communications paradigm shift like that of the invention of the telegraph. UC removes the geographic barriers of effective communications through the use of voice, video, and data integration. Business can be conducted with a fluidity that progresses and evolves with you. Information has been at our fingertips for a long time, but UC enables the sharing of this information to create knowledge and value.
Cisco UC is part of an integrated solution that includes network infrastructure, security, mobility, network management products, lifecycle services, flexible deployment and outsourced management options, end-user and partner financing packages, and third-party communication applications.
Cisco UC can drastically change the bottom line of business by creating more effective communications without losing the personal nature of a face-to-face conversation. More effective communication leads to reduced time to market and nimble transformation of business processes through collaboration.

  • Cisco Unified Contact Center Express

Introduction
Cisco Unified Contact Center is part of the Cisco Unified Communications application suite, which delivers intelligent call routing, network-to-desktop computer telephony integration (CTI), and multichannel contact management to contact center agents over an IP network. It combines software IP automatic call distribution (ACD) functions with Cisco Unified Communications in a unified solution that enables companies to rapidly deploy an advanced, distributed contact center infrastructure.
Primary Components of the Cisco IPCC Remote Agent Option
The primary components of the Cisco IPCC Remote Agent Option follow:
Cisco IP Contact Center solution: Cisco IP Contact Center (IPCC) combines Cisco IP Telephony and ready-to-use CTI capabilities in a call-center product suite. The software includes intelligent call routing, multichannel ACD capability, IVR, call queuing, and consolidated reporting features.
Cisco IP Contact Center components include the following:
Cisco Unified Communications Manager: Provides traditional private branch exchange (PBX) telephony features and functions to packet-telephony devices. Installed on a server-class PC, Cisco Unified Communications Manager software provides basic call processing, signaling, and connection services to Cisco IP phones, VoIP gateways, and software applications.
Cisco Computer Telephony Integration Object Server (CTI OS) Desktop and Cisco Agent Desktop: Allow an agent to control the remote agent state (for example, login, available/unavailable, and work or wrap-up) and perform call control (answer, release, hold, and transfer).
Cisco Unified CVP (formerly Internet Service Node) or Cisco Unified IP IVR: Provides announcements, prompting, gathering of caller-entered digits, and a queue point to park calls when all remote agents are busy.
VoIP gateways
Centralized monitoring and recording: Provides call-center managers with real-time and historic data for all remote agents.
Cisco Virtual Office teleworker architecture (for IP phones only): The Cisco Business Ready Teleworker architecture, combined with Cisco IP Contact Center, gives remote agents the same accessibility to call-center applications as staff based at central sites. Cisco Virtual Office provides the most comprehensive security and network management available in a teleworking environment over a standard cable or broadband connection, including QoS to help ensure prioritization of mission-critical or delay-sensitive traffic. Cisco Business Ready Teleworker can be quickly and cost-effectively deployed to deliver high-quality, consistent application access for remote agents through an always-on, highly secure, and centrally managed connection to the enterprise network.

The solution is built on the Cisco IP Telephony infrastructure, which includes:

  • Cisco Unified IP Phones
  • Cisco Voice Gateways
  • Cisco LAN/WAN infrastructure

Benefits:

  • Intelligent contact routing and call treatment
  • Network-to-desktop computer telephony integration

WebEx:

What is WebEx? A Cool Way to Have an Online Meeting

  • So you’ve heard the term WebEx but you have no idea what a WebEx is? You’ve come to the right place.

WebEx lets you have online meetings with anyone who has an Internet connection – including mobile users. You will be connected via audio and you can share content from your computer which lets you see the same things at the same time – like PowerPoint files, Word documents or even browse the web together. Within the meeting, you can “Pass the Ball” so any attendee can control the meeting and share.
WebEx can help any small business, teleworker or home user conduct their business meetings more professionally and efficiently.
Audio
With an online meeting, you can join using your landline telephone, your mobile or via VoIP using a headset connected to your computer. It’s all up to you. When you log in to your meeting, phone numbers for connecting are provided or you can choose to use your VoIP headset.
Video
Online meetings are often called “video conferences” because participants have the option to share their image via webcam. With WebEx, you can have a conversation with the other people in your meeting and the image will dynamically change to show you who is speaking. It’s like meeting in person but using everyone’s webcams.
Mobile
Meetings don’t have to happen just on the computer. WebEx has free mobile applications for most SmartPhones, and the iPad so you can join a meeting when you aren’t at your desk. Just download the application and join. You can also host a meeting from your phone.
Recording
One of the coolest features in WebEx is its recording feature. Once everyone has connected into the meeting, press record and you will instantly capture whatever is happening on audio, video, along with what you are sharing on screen. This means if someone misses the meeting, you can send them a copy to catch up – it also means you can fully participate in the action and use the recording to take notes later.
Publishing
You can use recordings to capture important content that you want to share with others. Many of our customers record themselves giving a presentation or demo and then post the recording to their website. It allows them to leverage their time by packaging their information efficiently while still making it personal.
What can you do with WebEx?
Web conferencing lets you do almost anything you can do face-to-face. How you use WebEx is limited only by your imagination. Here are a few examples:
