Cisco Systems Inc., a leading producer of communication technologies, picked Revolabs Inc., a provider of wireless audio solutions for unified communications, to help develop Cisco’s latest Internet protocol conference phone, the companies say.
Cisco sought a company to partner with that could develop Cisco’s next generation of unified communications speakerphone products, and after evaluating Revolabs’ FLX platform, Cisco approached Revolabs, said JP Carney, Revolabs’ CEO.
Once Revolabs’ shared its FLX platform—which provides advanced audio technology, and superior echo cancellation and acoustics—with Cisco, “it was evident” the FLX platform complemented Cisco’s “vision” of the UC market, Carney says. Once selected, Revolabs worked “very closely” with Cisco to make the FLX platform interoperate with Cisco’s Unified Communications Call Manager platform, and the end result is stunning, Carney says.
Powered by Revolabs’ FLX platform, Cisco’s new IP Conference Phone 8831 features a base unit that houses a dual speaker configuration with four HD capable microphones and a corded dialer.
In addition, the conference phone is available with three options to expand coverage for larger rooms. Those options include a daisy-chain kit to link two base units together, and wired and wireless microphone kits, each featuring two omnidirectional microphones. The third option is a wireless microphone kit that uses Revolabs’ expertise in wireless microphones and acoustic echo cancellation, the company says. With the kit, users can place additional microphones where they are needed in the conference room to expand coverage and maximize sound quality, Revolabs says.
