In a move designed to provide its customers with simpler ways to collaborate with coworkers from anywhere and on any device, Cisco Systems (CSCO) this week announced three new additions to its communications portfolio.

Cisco Spark is the company’s virtual collaboration platform, with the ability to generate unlimited virtual rooms. With Spark, enterprise users will be able to chat using mobile devices, desktops and enterprise collaboration solutions via text, audio and video between up to 25 members, according to the company.

Spark began life as "Project Squared," when it launched in November, according to Chris Wiborg, director of Collaboration Portfolio Marketing at Cisco. Since then, Cisco added several new features to the platform based on customer feedback, including room moderation, simplified administration, calendar integration and a new Windows client for faster access to content on the desktop. Cisco also added more language support and Firefox integration that will allow users to activate video chats without a separate plug-in.

The platform is available in a freemium model as well as two new premium models, including Spark Message and Spark Message and Meet. Spark Message includes additional controls for IT such as live support, while the Message and Meet option allows for up to 25 callers and comes bundled with an enterprise license for WebEx.
