It’s easy to share some time with the ones you love.
Use WebEx and you can host a video conference that lets you see your special love, your parents, your kids or anyone else you are missing on Valentine’s Day. You can see up to six people at once during your video conference.

Sixteen teams in different locations participated in this year’s NBA Development League Draft using Cisco WebEx as their connection to players and coaches to see and be seen! From California to Texas, to Nevada to Maine, everyone was connected either by computer or mobile device to experience the excitement of the draft.
The draft was held on November 3, 2011. It was a two hour event with eight rounds and a total of 128 picks. Participants joined WebEx from their homes, office and a few were at draft parties in restaurants. Those with webcams were able to share their reactions while others could watch from their computer or mobile phones -- even iPads!
