Cisco recently announced it will team with Verizon Enterprise Solutions to deliver Cisco Spark, a new cloud-based collaboration service, to Verizon’s customers. This is part of Verizon’s plan to offer a broad range of next-generation collaboration solutions.

Building on top of their highly successful collaboration alliance, Verizon is taking a leading role in the fast-growing cloud collaboration landscape.  By combining Verizon’s vast mobile assets and world-class network services, leading global unified communications and collaboration portfolio and combining it with Cisco’s strong go-to-market push, the companies will be ideally positioned to develop and deliver new advanced collaboration services.

Cisco’s unique approach to cloud places industry leaders such as Verizon at its core. By leveraging the distinctive capabilities and assets of Verizon, Cisco sets a precedent for a new engagement model.

Cisco Spark delivers integrated collaboration capabilities to enable a powerful user experience. The new joint offer will deliver Spark Message and Spark Meet features integrated with Verizon’s business collaboration services in such a simple way that it is hard to tell where one ends and the next begins.
