Acano technology is introduced to the Cisco family.
On January 29, 2016, Cisco announced the acquisition of the privately held Acano. And several months later, a new baby was born – Cisco Meeting Server. Just kidding! In reality, Cisco has taken what they’ve bought (Acano’s excellent technology) and introduced it to the Cisco Collaboration family with the recent release of Cisco Meeting Server 2.0 and the CMS-1000 hardware platform. Go ahead and call the grandparents: these new tools and their capabilities are hitting their milestones like a champ with a new Cisco Collaboration focus on video conferencing scale, Microsoft interoperability and native WebRTC capabilities. Let’s take a look at what CMS is all about (the Acano heritage), and what’s changed along with the name.
