Apple teams with Cisco to create 'fast lane' to optimize iOS business data traffic

3/09/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


Apple and Cisco Systems are collaborating to optimize Cisco's networking gear for iOS enterprise users, part of a larger push Apple is making to get its iPhones and iPads into more business customers' hands.

The two companies said they are also working together to "deliver experiences specially optimized for iOS across mobile, cloud, and premises-based collaboration tools." Those include Cisco Spark, the network vendor's mobile messaging application, Cisco Telepresence and Cisco WebEx for video conferencing.  

As Bloomberg notes, the collaboration will mean that iPhone users could click on a calendar appointment and immediately start a videoconference or the Spark chat app, instead of having to pull up each separately. The companies are also looking to integrate contacts on workers' iPhones with their Cisco-provided desk phones and have calls to desk phones automatically ring on both that phone and a person's iPhone.  

However, the companies' work to establish what they both call a "fast lane" for iOS devices in the enterprise market is definitely the most intriguing aspect of the partnership, especially for wireless carriers.
