//updated : added ''Webex for e-schools'' presentation

 

Hi all,

 

due to global circumstances resulting from COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease),  customers worldwide are looking to remote working/virtual meetings solutions. 

Cisco offers various market-leading solutions that could help towards this direction (Jabber, Webex Teams, Webex Meetings, etc). In this post, we will focus on Webex Meetings solution.

 

What is Webex Meetings and why do I care?

Webex Meetings is a cloud-based conferencing solution offering virtual meetings with advanced capabilities (content sharing, calendar integration, recording, etc.)

 

How can I start now with Webex Meetings?

There are below options that do not require any upfront payment :

a) Free Webex offer - fits more for individuals or small companies

You can get free Webex here --> https://www.webex.com/video-conferencing

Each user creates his/her own account that is self-administered. 

Till recently, free Webex offer had various limitations (40min conf, 50participants, no PSTN access, etc.) BUT due to current circumstances(COVID-19) and towards an effort to help our customers, Cisco has expanded the capabilities of the free Webex offer adding: 

  • Unlimited usage (no time restrictions)
  • Supports up to 100 participants
  • Offers PSTN toll dial-in number for audio connection if desired (in addition to existing VoIP capabilities) 

Relevant announcement where you can see the list of countries available :

Important:

Guidance to individual end users and their managers on adapting to remote work can be found at cs.co/webexremotework.   

 

b) Webex trials - for small/medium/large orgs that need management/reporting

Webex trials fits more to companies that need management and other advanced capabilities (reporting/directory integration,etc.) 

You can ask your Cisco partner or Cisco Sales contact for a free Webex trial today. 

Webex trials support meetings of up to 200 participants (per meeting) (if need more, please talk to your Cisco Account Manager).
