Cisco is extending its web conferencing and collaboration capabilities to the Apple iPhone 3G device with its Cisco WebEx Meeting Center and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace technology.
A new Cisco WebEx meetings iPhone application, which is available for free download from the AppStore, allows users to click to join and actively collaborate in CiscoWebEx meetings.
With the Cisco WebEx Meeting Center application on the iPhone, users can view what is being shared, see the meeting participant list, see the active speaker and chat with other meeting participants.
The online meeting experience gives users the ability to take advantage of simultaneous web and audio conferencing capabilities from Cisco on both 3G mobile and 802.11 wireless (Wi-Fi) networks.
The system supports multiple telephony configurations, including software as a service-based telephony from Cisco WebEx Meeting Center, premises-based telephony from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, or telephony from Cisco's service provider partners.
The download is free from the AppStore. Users need to have current subscriptions to the WebEx services to schedule or host a meeting.
