Cisco Announces New Software and Cloud Solutions that Change the Game in B2B Video Collaboration

Cisco is changing the game for B2B collaboration with new software and cloud advancements that make HD video collaboration more affordable and accessible between businesses. Today at Enterprise Connect, Cisco is announcing new enhancements across our collaboration portfolio that deliver conferencing your way on any device, anywhere.

It’s about bringing all types of conferencing together whether video, voice, or web with a consistent user experience — Cisco is doing this.

We’re also introducing new ways to help our customers take advantage of intelligence within the network to easily and cost-effectively scale video collaboration across their organization and business community. Here are a few highlights of what is now available:

  • Software innovation that scales HD video conferencing infrastructure – up to 70% greater efficiency.
  • Webex-enabled TelePresence that will bring video collaboration to millions, with voice, two-way HD video and content sharing. Join your meeting with simple scheduling and one button to push, and participate on any device via Cisco WebEx, telepresence and 3rd party standards-based video options inside and outside of your organization.
  • Cisco’s cloud collaboration partners can now deliver on-demand virtual meeting room services from the cloud.
  • Additional capabilities to enhance network management, visibility and troubleshooting for collaboration endpoints as part of Cisco’s medianet network architecture.

Cisco is the only company that can provide a complete collaboration experience from the network to the endpoint. To learn more, I invite you to hear our strategy and see some of these new solutions in action by watching our March 19 Collaboration Announcement Webcast on March 19 from 9-9:30 a.m. PT (replay available after 1 p.m. PT). Or, if you’re at Enterprise Connect this week, stop by our Cisco booth for live demos of what’s new.

If you could have conferencing your way — how would it change the way you and your organization collaborate face to face? As always, I welcome your feedback and look forward to us staying engaged.

    WebEx-enabled Telepresence with 2-way video! Can you confirm if the 2-way HD video supports 3rd party TP systems like Polycom? (EX: WebEx video with Polycom TP)

      Yes, any standards base telepresence system which is supported with Cisco MCU or TelePresence Server, including vendors like Polycom or Lifesize can participate in a Webex enabled Telepresence Meeting.
