Cisco Offers Free Version of Video Conferencing Software

Cisco Webex, award-winning video conferencing solution, is packed with premium features

 

At this time, organizations are increasingly preferring to instate work-from-home and remote working policies to ensure continuity for businesses, services, teaching and learning. Many are looking for intelligent solutions that will allow team members to seamlessly hold meetings and work together anytime and anywhere.

Global collaboration leader Cisco is offering a free plan of Cisco Webex, a video conferencing solution designed to counter common issues of slow servers, poor compatibility with different devices, or issues of security experienced. Currently offering a free version to meet the needs of the work-from-home population, Webex has been optimized for best performance through Cisco’s expertise and longstanding industry network.

For one, Cisco’s data centers are spread out all over the world, providing global coverage and faster connections. As these data centers are owned by the company, they guarantee high-quality service and support as well as greater security. Cisco’s extensive network experience has also been applied to lowering Webex’s bandwidth usage, allowing for optimum performance with lower bandwidth requirements.

Cisco has long been a collaboration vendor for many trusted device brands. This has now guaranteed that Webex is compatible with most mobile devices, laptops, and video devices, allowing for a seamless auto-connection experience and easy transitioning between devices.

Security, which is often a concern for companies sharing information across different networks, is a primary strength of Webex. With state-of-the-art end-to-end  encryption and industry-leading cybersecurity, the platform is GDPR-compliant and meets ISO 20071 criteria. Users have no cause for worry, as calls, meetings, and any shared files will be securely stored.

Webex has made headlines recently as they’ve added more features to what is already a sophisticated product. Cisco Webex now enables users to write, annotate, and draw directly on the screen.

The platform is packed with features that enhance the software’s useability, including a clear-cut user interface–as the company describes it, “Just one big green button to push to easily start your meeting.” The free version also offers video storage for recording meetings, and is integrated with multiple productivity solutions.

Through the company’s 2018 acquisition of voice recognition startup Voicea, automated recording and transcription of all meetings can be enabled. This will doubtless save users the effort of writing and formatting detailed meeting minutes, and the added ease of a searchable transcription allows for quick references back to the meeting discussion.

Just like any software, there is more functionality to be discovered by learning more about the product. The company’s free version includes the video conferencing software with a number of helpful tutorials on getting the most out of it.

The free version of Webex is currently on offer at the Cisco Hong Kong website, allowing users to maximize productivity and effectively collaborate with colleagues during the ongoing work-from-home experiment.
