Why Webex for Meetings?


** update Sept2019 - added Zoom vs Cisco webinar **

Hi all,


To see what Webex Meetings offering is about, please check below post:

Cisco Webex Meetings - Overview 


In this post I gathered some nice differentiation resources (Why Webex Meetings?):

a) Below you can find a comparison with other cloud meeting vendors:

Adding briefly to above: Cisco has a unique portfolio that covers all components that are needed in Meetings/Video solution:

  • Video endpoints (all rooms sizes and softclients - outstanding quality -easy of use)
  • Callcontrol/registration (SIP registration and management from cloud)
  • Video/audio/webconferencing MCU on the cloud (great features and interop)

Having a complete solution (while allowing interop with other vendors via Video standards) allows you to deliver better experience for the users and unique feature sets and integrations vs solutions that comprise from 3-4 vendors. Apart from this, Cisco has a strong focus on Meetings solution with considerable investments on development.
