Purpose-built Cisco devices for Microsoft Teams, further integrated with Cisco verified displays from Samsung, featuring 4K-and-5K UHD displays. As for using AI, it’ll boost overall speech, camera, and audio outcome to make the meetings more meaningful, and timely managed.

Benefits of the Collaborative Approach

  • Synchronized Deployment and Management: You’ll no longer need to run after the IT and admin staff at the start, in-between or even after the meeting as everything’s fully managed by Microsoft’s admin center and CISCO’s control hub.
  • Redefining Interoperability: Users can conveniently join the meetings (both Microsoft Teams and/or Webex) on the same device. Say goodbye to system reconfiguration and reboot.
