Apple has announced a partnership with networking giant Cisco. The companies will team up to optimize enterprise networks for iOS devices and apps.
“iOS is the world’s best mobile platform, and nearly every Fortune 500 and Global 500 company today has put iOS at the center of their mobile strategy,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “iPhone and iPad have become essential tools for the modern workforce and are changing the way work gets done. Together with Cisco, we believe we can give businesses the tools to maximize the potential of iOS and help employees become even more productive using the devices they already love.”
Cisco and Apple will work together to ensure Cisco networks and iOS devices will be optimized to work together more efficiently and reliably, in order to improve customers’ performance.
The companies are also working together to make iPhone an even better business collaboration tool in Cisco voice and video environments, “with the goal of providing employees with a seamless experience between iPhone and their desk phone.”
Cisco will create optimized “experiences” for iOS across mobile, cloud, and premises-based collaboration tools such as Spark, Telepresence and WebEx.
