We’re delighted to share that Cisco has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Group Video Systems for the second year in a row.

This is a dynamic time for video and collaboration. Many organizations are evaluating more pervasive deployments and expanding the use cases for video.

Among important factors in evaluating the ability of video systems to meet enterprise needs, Gartner includes:

  • Clearly demonstrated market traction with large enterprise or public sector customers
  • Product range, including the ability to span from large dedicated video rooms to personal and mobile endpoints
  • Product quality, especially in dedicated room systems and modular room systems
  • Innovation in endpoint design, cloud-based infrastructure and user experience


As Cisco SVP and GM Rowan Trollope recently shared in the Collaboration Innovation Talk at Cisco Live, we continue to focus on delivering quality experiences that are simple, open and delight users. And this focus on simplified experiences resonates. We’re seeing strong adoption for video across the board – in conference rooms, huddle spaces, desktops and mobile devices – and even expanded use cases.

But we’re not stopping there. Enabling pervasive video means delivering flexibility and options so you can easily extend video to more users. To that end, we’ve accelerated availability for cloud-connected video systems across the portfolio, including

We’re focused on making video easy-to-use and part of every collaboration interaction – today. Our software-based approach provides added flexibility. This lets you add value to workflows from the cloud or extend your on-premises deployments. And we continue to integrate Acano infrastructure solutions to further scale and simplify video collaboration with anyone.

Congratulations and thanks to the engineering teams, partners, and customers who continue to help us to evolve our video collaboration solutions.

We believe it’s a great time for pervasive video. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
