Apple teams with Cisco in another major bid to conquer the workplace

Apple Cisco iPhone iPad Partnership

After the huge IBM deal Apple inked not too long ago, the company has struck a similar deal with another gigantic corporation, Cisco Systems, which should help it further increase iPhone and especially iPad sales.

Cisco and Apple announced Monday that they’ll work on making iOS devices even more accessible to business users, The Wall Street Journal reports.

With Cisco’s help, Apple’s mobile devices should communicate “more effectively on corporate networks where Cisco gear is widely used,” the Journal notes.

Additionally, the two companies will create technologies that will let iPhone and iPad owners who use iOS devices for work-related purposes to better exploit certain Cisco products, including video and web-conferencing services.

One other major area of interest for the two companies is making sure employees get adequate networking performance in the workplace. Apple and Cisco want to create a “fast lane” for iOS devices in the corporate world, which means prioritizing wireless and web connections so that critical business apps aren’t compromised by unnecessary clutter such as funny cat video streaming.

Integrating address books on iPhone and Cisco desk phones may be one other area of interest for the companies.

The two tech giants worked for 10 months on the deal, Apple’s Tim Cook and Cisco chairman John Chambers told the Journal, planning to reveal the deal to thousands Cisco sales representatives at a gathering in Las Vegas.

“It became clear to me that partnering with Cisco would yield the results that would enable us to transform work,” Mr. Cook said.
