Today Cisco is introducing new Pervasive Conferencing capabilities that further simplify and enable video collaboration for everyone. It’s about increase in scale throughout your organization along with greater efficiencies and affordability. Consider doubling the number of endpoints while keeping costs at a few dollars per user per month.
Enhancements across our collaboration portfolio make it easy to migrate, upgrade or implement a new deployment, and give you flexibility to customize solutions for what your business specifically needs. Let me share a few announcement highlights:
- Deployment options: We’ve made it easier for you to choose your deployment. Virtualized, on-premise, or cloud, you can use the platform that works best with your infrastructure strategy.
- Broader reach: Extend high-quality multiparty video and web conferencing meetings to more endpoint types with our expanded support of high-definition mobile devices. Read More »

Over the past decade, I’ve worked on a number of different projects aimed at improving communications using video conferencing and telepresence. In that time, I’ve been fortunate to be involved with key innovations at first Tandberg then Cisco that have had great impact on video collaboration:
- Forging life-like experience with immersive telepresence
- Extending the power of in-person all the way to the desktop
- Enabling a consistent and intuitive user experience with a revolutionary touch-enabled device
- Playing a pivotal role in driving video formats like H.264 and H.265 to standardization
- Growing the video calling circle beyond the enterprise with technological advancements like software video clients, cloud deployment models and firewall traversal that enable cost-effective B2B and B2C calling
With the spirit of innovation ingrained in both company’s DNA, the merger of Tandberg and Cisco’s video businesses in 2010 proved to be a major win for the industry and for the customer. Since then, we’ve focused our efforts on delivering next-generation video collaboration solutions that are enabling organizations to collaborate easily and efficiently, and allowing them to foster innovation within their own businesses.
Why is all of this so important? As time marches on, we see video becoming pervasive. Roberto De La Mora recently called video a business imperative, not a nice-to-have, and shared the five steps to success for deploying a business video strategy.

I’m excited to share that Cisco TelePresence is now WebEx enabled. This is another milestone in our effort to simplify the delivery of highly scalable, affordable multiparty collaboration for voice, video and web conferencing. Enabling conferencing on any standards-based video device is critical for people-centric collaboration, and helps companies focus on connecting people across any device and enabling productive conversations across teams, without technology getting in the way.
