Cisco Partner Summit Preview: 10 Things Partners Hope To Learn


What's Cisco's Road Map For UC?

While SDN and the cloud are poised to be a big focus at this year's Partner Summit, Cisco's Unified Communications (UC) strategy will still be top-of-mind for many solution providers at the show.

TekLinks' Girouard, for his part, said he would be curious to hear about Cisco's plans, if any, for integration between some of Cisco's UC solutions like WebEx, Call Manager and its Hosted Unified Communications Services.

"We are just waiting to see some integration progression where you can push and sell a true UC platform that includes desktop collaboration, presence, voice, video -- whether its desktop video or room-based video -- as well as voice over IP. I'm hoping to learn something about that," Girouard said.
