Cisco News - Cisco Unified Communications Release 9.0 Embraces the Mobile Worker
By Rory Lidstone, TMCnet Contributing Writer
Aiming to meet the demand for enhanced mobility and collaboration solutions, Cisco has updated its Unified Communications (News - Alert) platform. Cisco Unified Communications (UC) Release 9.0 is meant to address a number of key challenges IT managers are faced with while trying to offer collaboration to employees in office and on the go.
Perhaps most importantly, Cisco UC Release 9.0 introduces licensing improvements, allowing businesses to purchase licenses based on four worker types: deskless (roaming) workers, desk-bound workers, occasionally mobile workers and road warriors. Furthermore, Cisco Unified Workspace Licensing Premium Edition adds mobility solutions to address the growing trend of mobile use in the workforce.
Cisco UC Release 9.0 is slated for release worldwide by the third quarter of 2012 while Extend and Connect, which requires Cisco Jabber 9.1, won't be available until Cisco Jabber 9.1 becomes available in the fourth quarter.

To be held Oct. 2-5 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, TX, ITEXPO (News - Alert) is the world’s premier IP communications event. Tucker will be a keynote speaker at the event.
