Cisco Spark Calling Overview

A complete, cloud-based Cisco collaboration service that allows you to message, meet, and call anyone.

Cisco Spark Calling enables voice and video communications via mobile and desktop clients, Cisco IP phones, and rooms using video-based systems. By connecting to PSTN telephone services*, you can enjoy one-touch directory dialing, single number reach, single voicemail service, video services, and the ability to seamlessly move between devices during a call. It also integrates with the message and meeting functionality of Cisco Spark to deliver new and better ways to get work done quickly.

Cloud Calling in the Office and Remote

For many organizations, using the cloud to deliver unified communications services not only offers a simple and efficient delivery option, it also frees your resources so you can focus on your core business. Spark Calling capabilities are designed especially for organizations under 250 users. The system provides many of the benefits of traditional phone systems without the expense and complexity of on-premises, hardware-based systems.

With MaxxConnect for Spark Calling, you can use your Cisco IP phone to dial extensions or click to call from the company directory to reach anyone, at any location – whether in the office or working remotely.

The Cisco Spark app is a single, integrated mobile client for voice, video, business messaging, and meetings that works on any device. It allows you to make and receive HD voice and video calls with just a single tap so you can collaborate while away from the office.

Because calling integrates deeply with the Cisco Spark app, screen and content sharing are a natural and easy part of any voice or video conversation. When calling another Cisco Spark user using a Cisco IP phone, you can instantly share your desktop with a single click – no need to set up a formal meeting.
