till recently the best way to get Webex cloud Meetings for individual users was Spark M3 named hosts order. But Webex continuously evolves both technically and commercially so today, the new Flex Plan Named User Meetings is the best choice for individual users ordering.
Flex plan program can be used for cloud and on-premises licensing orders.
This post does not discuss on-premises licensing options at all.
Here we focus only on cloud meeting options.
From all the Webex cloud meeting options, most common is Webex Meetings and again we will concentrate on this on this post. But have in mind that you can also order Webex Trainings or Webex Event or Webex Support Center via Flex Plan. If you want to understand more on Webex meeting flavors, check here:
So let's see what Flex Plan Named User Meetings offers:
It provides named hosts that have the ability to organize/schedule and host Webex Meetings
A named host can host one meeting at the time.
Participants can be webex participants (using browser on PC/laptop or webex free app on mobile/smartphones) or Video endpoints (SIP, H323, Cisco and non-Cisco, S4B/lync).
So in summary, anyone can join a Webex Meetings session!!
Meeting capacity is 1000 participants (75 of them could be video endpoints).
It also provides a rich web conferencing experience (including chat, etc,) for webex participants and offers advanced features like meeting recording, scheduling, personal rooms, PSTN audio options.
Why is it better than Spark M3 offering ?
First of all, SparkM3 offers meetings with 200 participants capacity while Flex Plan Named User Meetings offers 1000. Another great difference is that Flex Plan Named User Meeting package includes at no additional cost dial-in Audio PSTN option (Toll Named User). Maybe there are more benefits but these two for me are enough considering their price is very very similar.
