Cisco has extended its web conferencing and collaboration capabilities to the Apple iPhone 3G user experience, with Cisco WebEx Meeting Center and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.
According to Cisco, the new WebEx meetings iPhone application, which is available for free download from the AppStore, is expected to allow users to simply click to join and actively collaborate in CiscoWebEx meetings. With Cisco WebEx Meeting Center application on the iPhone, users can view what’s being shared, see the meeting participant list, see the active speaker and chat with other meeting participants.
The online meeting experience is expected to enable the users take advantage of simultaneous web and audio conferencing capabilities from Cisco on both the 3G mobile and 802.11 wireless (Wi-Fi) networks.
The system is also claimed to support multiple telephony configurations including SaaS-based telephony from Cisco WebEx Meeting Center, premises-based telephony from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, or telephony from Cisco’s service provider partners.
