Apple links up with Cisco Systems in bid to sell more iPhones and iPads.

“Through this engineering and go-to-market partnership, we’re offering our joint customers the ability to seamlessly extend that awesome Cisco environment to their favorite iOS devices.The Silicon Valley companies on Monday announced an alliance aimed at helping Apple’s mobile devices communicate more effectively on corporate networks where Cisco gear is widely used.

For Apple, it’s the second recently struck partnership with a former foe aimed at boosting sales to businesses, which traditionally have steered toward BlackBerry and Microsoft devices. Cisco, which has an office in downtown Toronto, provides products and services that connect companies to the Internet as well as communications tools for virtual conferences and meetings. Cisco customers could be affected in several ways: An employee in the office using an iPhone to video-conference a colleague abroad automatically would get a faster Internet connection than someone streaming a game on Apple CEO Tim Cook and Cisco Chairman John Chambers told the Journal the partnership, which was 10 months in the making, will be explained in detail to thousands of Cisco sales representatives at a gathering in Las Vegas on Monday. Cisco will also develop products specifically for Apple’s operating system. “iPhone and iPad have become essential tools for the modern workforce and are changing the way work gets done.

And several Cisco apps, such as the collaboration tool Spark, will run smoother on Apple devices. “What makes this new partnership unique is that our engineering teams are innovating together to build joint solutions that our sales teams and partners will take jointly to our customers,” Cisco Chief Executive Chuck Robbins said in a blog post. That’s in part why technology experts who closely follow Apple expect the company to soon release a larger-screened iPad that would be better-suited for completing work tasks. One of the byproducts of the Apple-Cisco partnership will be the creation of a so-called “fast lane” for iOS devices that prioritizes wireless and Web connections of critical business applications, the companies said.
