Today, Cisco announced a new collaboration portfolio that was designed to help companies accelerate business processes, increase productivity and speed innovation.

The Cisco collaboration portfolio consists of Cisco Unified Communications, Cisco TelePresence and a new Web 2.0 application platform, all of which use the network as the platform to help enable people to connect, communicate and collaborate from any application, device and workspace.

Cisco said the new portfolio of unified communications, video and a Web 2.0 platform was designed to integrate with business applications, existing IT infrastructures and other Web services, and to allow developers to create customized applications and network-based services.

"Collaboration is the next phase of the Internet, a phase that analysts see as a $34 billion market opportunity, and at the center of this phase is the network," said Don Proctor, senior vice president, software group, Cisco. "Our network platform uses open-standards protocols to expose critical collaboration services such as presence, instant messaging, call control and policy to a broad range of devices and applications.”
