The partnership will make it easier to use iPhones and iPads together with Cisco’s products, including videoconferencing systems.
“This is a major strategic partnership, something that neither company has done before,” said Rowan Trollope, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco’s Collaboration Technology Group. “We have a shared vision of a completely seamless experience.”
Engineers from both companies have been working together for 10 months, and Cisco and Apple salespeople will go on joint sales calls, he said. – Last year, Apple and International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) set aside a three-decade-old rivalry to create business software for iPhone and iPad users, seeking to cater to an increasingly mobile workforce. While Apple is pursuing a bigger slice of the market for corporate users of smartphones and tablets, IBM and Cisco are looking for opportunities in the mobile-computing boom.
