I often hear customers discussing their challenges when considering moving their on-premises devices to the cloud. In November, I blogged about this debate and Webex Edge for Devices making the tough decisions easier.
It’s not surprising that many of the features that drive this conversation are the modern capabilities of device management and analytics in a single pane of glass. Webex Edge for Devices brings these Webex cloud features and functionalities to on-premises registered video devices in a simple and flexible way.

Customers that thought moving to the cloud was complicated, expensive and not scalable are realizing that with Webex Edge for Devices, it only takes 3 steps.
