Cisco demos its Cius Android tablet with HD video capabilities
just announced a business-aimed Android Tablet, and they call it Cius. The tablet will offer HD video streaming, real-time
video, multi-party conferencing, plus all the regular tablet functions like messaging, email, and browsing.
We're not sure about
the size of the device yet, or any of it technical specs, but we do know that it's going to weigh in at 1.15lbs, so it can't
be terrifically large. There's also no word yet on pricing yet, but expect to see the device the first quarter of 2011; we'll
let you know about the former as soon as we do.....because we at Clear-Cloud Network are in love with Cisco and Mr Chambers
their cool CEO (for life) - why they make Microsoft look like a small fry wannabes..........
from recent Cisco demo 12.01.10 at Clear-Cloud Network Group meet for Mid-West Brokers:
Mobile Collaboration With First-of-Its-Kind HD Video-Capable Business Tablet
New Android-Based Computing Device
Uses Cisco Collaboration Architecture and Virtual Desktop Integration to Deliver Mobile Computing, Collaboration and Communication
LAS VEGAS, NV, Jun 29, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Cisco /quotes/comstock/15*!csco/quotes/nls/csco
(CSCO 21.59, -0.83, -3.70%) today unveiled Cisco Cius, a first-of-its-kind mobile collaboration business tablet that delivers
virtual desktop integration with anywhere, anytime access to the full range of Cisco collaboration and communication applications,
including HD video.
Cisco Cius is an ultra-portable device weighing just 1.15lbs (0.52kg) that extends the productivity
benefits of Cisco collaboration applications to a highly secure mobile platform. In addition to full telepresence interoperability,
Cisco Cius offers HD video streaming and real-time video, multi-party conferencing, email, messaging, browsing, and the ability
to produce, edit and share content stored locally or centrally in the cloud.
Based on the Android operating system,
Cisco Cius is an open platform for communication and collaboration whose form factor and applications are designed to more
securely connect employees on-the-go with the right people in real-time, and to provide those workers with the ability to
access and share the content they need from any place on the network.
Cisco Cius offers IT professionals new options
when it comes to equipping mobile workers with computing devices. Through virtual desktop integration, Cisco Cius offers flexible
computing options with cloud-based services, providing dramatically lower capital costs and cost-per-user for desktop maintenance.
Businesses can also tap into the growing Android developer community that is building business-class productivity
applications with appropriate IT controls. The combination of applications and flexible computing options provides a compelling
alternative to today's PC-on-every-desktop paradigm.
The Cisco Cius is a lightweight portable business computing tablet offered with an optional HD
audio station equipped with a telephone handset speakerphone, HD DisplayPort and USB ports.
The Cisco Cius tablet
features a front-mounted 720p HD camera which refreshes at up to 30 frames per second; a seven inch, high-resolution widescreen
super VGA touch-target display for real-time and streamed video, and single-button TelePresence interoperability that can
be utilized either when the tablet is docked, or being used remotely via Wi-Fi.
The tablet has a 5-megapixel rear
facing camera that can transmit streaming VGA quality video and capture still images, and dual noise-cancelling microphones
for audio conferencing.
Cisco Cius features an eloquent contacts-driven user experience, designed to enables users
to quickly reach their important contacts.
An on-board accelerometer readily orients applications for viewing in
portrait or landscape modes as the user rotates the device to their preferred viewing orientation
Cisco Cius supports
802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi for enterprise campus mobility and 3G cellular services when off-campus.
4G services will
be available at a later date. Bluetooth and Micro-USB means users can work untethered and share data with a PC.
detachable and serviceable battery offers eight hours life under normal usage.
Integration with Business
Cisco Cius provides support for the comprehensive suite of Cisco collaboration applications
including Cisco Quad, Cisco Show and Share, Cisco WebEx Connect, Cisco WebEx Meeting Center, Cisco Presence, and interoperability
with Cisco TelePresence.
Cisco Cius is supported by Cisco Unified Communications Manager and is easily integrated
into existing Cisco customer environments.
Cisco Cius helps ensure a more secure mobile collaboration experience
by leveraging Cisco AnyConnect VPN Security, part of the Cisco Borderless Networks architecture.
integration provides IT organizations with the ability to host software applications securely in the data center and to utilize
the Cisco network to deliver those applications 'as-a-service' anytime, anywhere. Cisco Cius thereby supports data center
consolidation and reduced software licensing costs.
Cisco Cius offers businesses the ability to take advantage
of the ever-expanding ecosystem of cost-effective, third-party applications, supported by the Android operating system, while
controlling user access policy.
Cisco will help expand Android developed applications for business by offering
Cisco Collaboration Application Protocol Interfaces (API's) to developers through a Software Developer's Kit (SDK).
