Cisco Cius Overview and WLAN Configuration

Rising star


Robert Tracy is a Wireless Expert working in Cisco TAC for 7 years. This video provides configuration options to configure Cisco Cius with the wireless local area network (WLAN).

Overview of Cisco Cius:

Cisco Cius is a mobile collaboration device for business. Cisco Cius provides an integrated suite of collaborative applications, including Cisco Quad, Cisco WebEx, Cisco Unified Presence, instant messaging, email, visual voice mail, and Cisco Unified Communications Manager voice and video telephony features. Cisco Cius also provides Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and cloud computing and support for a wide range of applications through Cisco AppHQ Developer Network Marketplace. Cisco Cius also supports applications from the Google Android Marketplace. For an overview of the features that Cisco Cius supports and for tips on configuring them, see Configuring Features, Templates, Services, and Users.

As with other network devices, you must configure Cisco Cius to prepare to access Cisco Unified Communications Manager and the rest of the IP network. By using DHCP, you have fewer settings to configure on Cisco Cius, but if your network requires it, you can manually configure an IP address, TFTP server, netmask information, and so on. For instructions on configuring the network settings on Cisco Cius, see the Setup Menus on Cisco Cius.

Finally, because Cisco Cius is a network device, you can obtain detailed status information from it directly. This information can assist you with troubleshooting problems that users might encounter when using their Cisco Cius devices. See Viewing Model Information Status and Statistics on Cisco Cius for more information.
