Cisco’s AVVID roadshow is to tour the UAE. The company is showing off its Architecture for Voice, Video and Integrated Data, a system which allows all those functions to be integrated onto a single network. Such a system has significant benefits for productivity, customer care and cost considerations.

The systems are all on board a full size articulated lorry with a futuristically designed trailer unit. The concept is to let managers and systems buyers see the technology in action. Craig Taylor, Gulf regional manager, said: “The AVVID truck has toured Europe with enormous success. Our customers there have been entranced by the technology – and the truck with its futuristic interior design. Bringing the truck to the Middle East at this time is very important to Cisco, as converged networking technology is starting to become strategic to a number of major organisations here, with many more investigating how they can use multiservice networking technology such as Cisco AVVID to save costs, improve internal systems and address customer service better.”

Among Cisco’s customers in the region, Dubai Internet City has the largest implementation of IP telephony in the EMEA region. The IP integration allows companies to save on infrastructure costs, and deploy complex integrated voice/data services quickly and cheaply. Other benefits include 'screen pops' containing a customer's account history and other relevant details, that give operators information as soon as the customer calls the company. This information can be transferred with the call to another operator.
