Fundamentals of Session Management

 

The flexibility enabled by an IP based communication system is exemplified in how Cisco handles Session Management. In fact, the combination of 'Session Management Edition and CUBE (Cisco Unified Border Element) remain the most cost effective way to transition from a traditional PBX environment without sacrificing previous investments.  

The benefits can be grouped in three areas: 

  • Save - Lower costs and improve efficiency by using SIP trunking to interconnect networks using Cisco Unified Border Element
  • Simplify - Reduce complexity by aggregating third-party PBXs, and easing migration to an all-IP environment.
  • Extend - Deploy collaboration applications at the network core and extend them to users, even those on third-party PBXs

In this latest in the Fundamentals series from TechWiseTV, we tackle the core technology hopefully explains it in a fun way. Get your head wrapped around Session Management and make sure you are not missing anything!

I don't care

O.J. Winge does not care about devices or platforms, but people.

  • I care about creating business value and growing our business
  • I care about how people work together, how they create and innovate;  
  • I care about empowering and engaging people.
  • After all – isn’t this what creates business value….
  • – isn’t this the *point* of technology? To help drive (human) performance to new levels?

88% of Business Leaders fear that 'misunderstanding' will slow them down.  

How do we help with communication? Well, 54% consider the most important part of communications is gauging engagement and focus- through a combination of visual and audio cues, such as facial expressions, gestures and body language, tone of voice.

When you engage each and every employee – you can transform them from “knowledge workers” into empowered employees.  And that is a powerful value for business.

we defined three “personas” fully characterized and profiled as users of our products… and as we designed and developed new product, we thought of the user – the persona the product was intended for.  This changed how we designed and developed our products.  In fact, this is what has driven the design of our immersive Telepresence
