Jabra and Cisco co-develop audio devices

Jabra ANZ and Cisco have co-developed audio devices which enhance the collaboration experience on Cisco Jabber for Windows and in virtual environments.

To enhance the Cisco Jabber experience, Jabra says it brought its expertise in audio engineering, product design and software integration to the development of two new products; a compact office speakerphone and a wireless DECT handset.

As a preferred solution developer in the Collaboration category of the Cisco Developer Network, Jabra has completed interoperability verification testing required by Cisco.

“Jabra has delivered essential audio devices for a complete workspace solution – adapting the workstation to the needs of the people who use it, and not vice versa,” says Fulvio Toniotti, MD, Jabra ANZ.

"This cooperation is a testament to Jabra’s long-lasting relation with Cisco, which recognises the importance of quality audio end-points, uniting a range of products to enhance the user experience, with completely interoperable devices”.

The Jabra SPEAKTM 450 for Cisco enables Cisco Jabber users to turn their workspace into a conference room; enjoy greater productivity with hands-free teleconferencing and superior audio-quality.

Including the latest in Bluetooth technology, Jabra says the device allows for additional connectivity on the other Bluetooth enabled devices such as smartphone, tablet and mobiles.

“Cisco is excited to support new Jabra audio accessories, developed exclusively for Cisco Jabber, that improve the user experience for better collaboration and greater productivity," says Peter Hughes, director of Collaboration, Cisco ANZ.

"With today’s announcement, Cisco and Jabra are able to provide users with more options to collaborate effectively on thin clients and Windows PCs with new, unified communication-enabled high quality audio accessories for the desktop."
