Cisco buys browser-based collaboration specialist Assemblage

by tech on June 30, 2014

Cisco has bought a British firm called Assemblage for its skills in wrangling browser technologies like WebRTC for real-time collaboration that doesn’t require the user to download any programs or plugins. Assemblage currently offers a range of tools including Kollaborate (videoconferencing), Presentation and Same (screen-sharing), and says it will continue to do so for now. In a blog post on Friday, Cisco — purveyors of expensive telepresence equipment that plays in the same space — said it was after the startup’s engineering prowess and third-party integration record.
