On November 20, 2015 Cisco announced its intent to acquire Acano Limited, a privately held company based in London that provides collaboration infrastructure and conferencing software. Acano’s hardware and software includes gateways, and video and audio bridging technology that allows customers to connect video systems from multiple vendors across both cloud and hybrid environments. This acquisition will accelerate Cisco’s collaboration strategy to deliver video everywhere, providing the best collaboration experience across every endpoint, every screen, every workspace, and to every user.
Acano unites previously incompatible audio, video and web technologies in coSpaces — virtual meeting rooms, only radically better. With coSpaces, people work wherever their ideas and creativity thrive. Acano can be described as a team workspace, and as audio, video and web conferencing all in one easy package. With Acano, every person at your organization can join a virtual team room called a coSpace using any device they want.
Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) is the worldwide leader in IT that helps companies seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the previously unconnected.
