Jabra has recently announced the launch of new audio devices developed with Cisco: the Jabra Speak 450 for Cisco and the Jabra Handset 450 for Cisco. These devices enhance the collaboration experience on Cisco Jabber for Windows and in virtual environments. On top of this, Jabra is the first headset manufacturer to offer on-device Call Control with the new Cisco Jabber 9.2 for Windows and Cisco VXI 2.7. This unique feature dramatically enhances the user experience with new Cisco solutions by enabling users to answer, end and mute a call via the Jabra device.
