Computacenter and Cisco are offering their clients a simple and powerful integration in terms of unified communications

The Cisco Meeting Server is joining the dots between the most popular UC solutions of Cisco and Microsoft.

Cisco launched its Meeting Server on the market at the beginning of this month. This solution, developed by the company Acano and bought up by Cisco, offers a simple integration between the on-site videoconferencing solutions of Cisco, and Microsoft’s Skype for Business. Computacenter was one of the first players to distribute and ensure the support of Acano solutions on the Belgian market.

At the end of last year, Cisco acquired the British company Acano in order to integrate its sophisticated videoconferencing technology - in this instance, a potential for integration with outsourced videoconferencing solutions - on its own UC platform. “This integration has become a reality over the past month. Clients can now benefit from a unified and more robust videoconferencing platform”, declared Liselotte Couttenye, UC specialist at Computacenter Belgium. “Computacenter is very happy with this integration: we were the first to use Acano technology with our clients. Now that they’re joining with Cisco, our other strategic partner, the client experience can only get better.”


Cisco Meeting Server: much more than video integration


Thanks to the high quality and interoperability that it brings in terms of audioconferencing, videoconferencing and web conferencing, the Cisco Meeting Server has made another breakthrough in team collaboration. The Cisco Meeting App that accompanies it simplifies meeting organisation and attendance, whatever the medium used: meeting room, video desktop, mobile or surfing clients.

The Cisco Meeting Server offers a uniform user experience and a familiar meeting environment, whether the participants attend the meeting by means of a Cisco solution, video programme from another supplier, a Cisco Jabber client, the Cisco Meeting App (native or via a WebRTC-compatible browser), or even via Skype for Business.

“The number of people who can take part in a meeting is limited only by the hardware”, stated Yves Woit of Cisco. “Use of the bandwidth is also optimised with a view to reducing costs. The Cisco Meeting Server gives each individual a simple and intuitive user experience.”

The Cisco Meeting Server has been optimised with a view to joint use with the Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Expressway or Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (VCS) for conversations management, the Cisco Expressway for integration with firewalls, and the Cisco TelePresence Management Suite for the set-up and booking of meetings (on-site infrastructure support for third party suppliers is likewise ensured). The platform may be used for small or large configurations. The all-in-one user-based licence model allows you to purchase only the services you need now, and add extra licences as and when your business grows.



Better support for joint clients


For the fourth consecutive year, Computacenter Belgium has obtained the best rating in the independent Whitelane study which assesses end-user support on the Belgium-Luxembourg market. “Cisco’s catalogue of powerful and user-friendly solutions was already very comprehensive. The arrival of this offer in its catalogue perfectly matches our own vision and explains why we have been loyal partners for so many years”, commented Liselotte Couttenye, UC specialist at Computacenter. “Our two companies are constantly seeking the best possible solutions to make life easier for our clients. Powerful integrated platforms such as the Cisco Meeting Server allow us to support our clients better than ever.”
