Verizon combines LTE and Cisco Cius to improve mobile enterprise collaboration

Verizon announced it is combining the power of its 4G LTE
network with the Cisco Cius to help customers decentralize and accelerate
decision-making for better business outcomes.

 

The Cisco Cius will be available to Verizon enterprise and government customers around the world later
this summer, and those located domestically will be able to combine the device
with a Verizon Wireless 4G LTE mobile hot spot.

Designed for the enterprise, the Android-based Cisco Cius
combines voice, video, collaboration and virtualization capabilities on one
device. When powered by Verizon’s 4G LTE network, mobile workers will be able to easily use bandwidth-intensive
video applications – including between devices – for more effective
collaboration.

“Mobile applications over intelligent high-speed
networks will continue to eliminate barriers in the workplace,” said Mike
Smith, vice president for Verizon enterprise communications, network and
mobility sales. “We’re forecasting a perfect storm where advanced
enterprise tools such as the Cisco Cius mesh with the speeds made possible by
4G LTE to make the virtual office a more robust reality than ever.”

In general, industries such as retail, financial
services, healthcare and government can employ tablets to change the pace of
their business.

Sales associates can employ tablets while out on the
floor to look up product and inventory information for customers, in addition
to processing transactions on the spot.

Bankers and financial advisors can take advantage of the
video capabilities of tablets for face-to-face meetings with clients, saving
the time it takes to meet up at physical locations.

Medical professionals can use tablets to collaborate on
patient care and speed critical decision-making.

 

Tablets can increase productivity of government users –
from military to civilian government field workers to emergency first
responders – allowing them to enter information or share it quickly with remote
offices to complete the business of government more efficiently.

 

Through Verizon’s Managed Mobility portfolio, enterprise customers can securely deploy a wide range of
devices to employees. Capabilities include device management; expense
tracking management; lock and wipe features for protecting sensitive data; and
mobile delivery of popular business and consumer apps from the cloud. In
addition, the company offers a full suite of professional services to help
organizations create policies and design mobility programs to suit varied
requirements.
