Cisco added a cloud call to its Webex Teams messaging application, which it called "an important step" in Broadsoft's technology stack integration after it completed the $ 1.9 billion acquisition this year.
This combination is an "enterprise-class" cloud-based PBX [private branch exchange] In addition to existing message and document sharing capabilities, the phone system is supported.
Zeus Kerravala, founder and chief analyst at ZK Research, says, "It's simple for you." With BroadCloud Calling, you can take advantage of a PBX without actually deploying it. "
Webex Teams' content sharing and messaging capabilities have been added to enable a single UC [unified communications] The application was the original vision of UC. "Kerravala said.
Earlier this year, Cisco integrated both Webex and Spark collaboration platforms into a single platform, the Webex team. Wayne Kurtzman, IDC research director at the time, described brand marketing as "not just marketing." Recognizing phones, conferences, video, collaboration, and in-room devices as the most well-known brand, Webex, is a fundamental change. "
Cisco unveiled a new currency application that integrates with Microsoft Outlook and enterprise directories at Cisco BroadSoft Connections event in Florida on Tuesday.
The Cisco Calling App allows you to make voice and video calls on mobile devices and desktops running iOS, Android, Windows, or MacOS.
Huddle Hardware & Software
Cisco also unveiled a new device to improve the "huddle" space conference experience, citing research that claims to have more than 25 million conference rooms in offices around the world.
Webex Room Kit The mini video conferencing device is intended for small meeting rooms and is added to the existing range of Webex Room Kit products.
The device detects users entering the conference room and "works" when all participants adjust the video to appear on the screen.
Meanwhile, the 55-inch Webex Board digital whiteboard received software updates that include browser access, sticky notes, and "pinch and zoom" interactions. For larger rooms, the version of Cisco 85-inch screen.
Finally, the company promoted Webex Share, a wireless screen sharing device that connects to the Webex Meeting and Webex teams to turn the TV or screen into a presentation device.
Kerravala limits its technology to medium and large conference rooms because meeting room hardware is expensive and difficult to deploy. Devices aimed at small rooms can help extend the reach of video conferencing tools.
"There are literally tens of millions of gathered rooms and open spaces that can have TVs or other displays, but nothing else." "Room Kit Mini and WebEx Share make it easy to switch any display into a smart collaborative space."
