Cisco: Improved Meeting Experiences with Webex Edge Connect

Webex Edge Connect

Our workplace has drastically changed this year and the way we collaborate and communicate is now different. We are relying on collaboration technologies more than ever to get work done, whether we are working from home, in-office or on the go.

With millions now using video conferencing tools to collaborate, organizations are faced with overwhelmed networks, and the less-than-optimal meeting experiences. We are helping customers address these new challenges and changing work habits in their organizations with Cisco Webex. Webex continues to deliver innovation, technology, scale and security that has empowered work experiences around the world.

The Webex backbone connects the entire world of Webex with a high-quality, redundant, and media-optimized network. Webex Edge Connect enables customers to tap directly into the Webex backbone via a dedicated, managed, quality-of-service (QoS) enabled IP link from a customer’s premises to the Cisco Webex cloud through direct peering. This setup leads to consistent, reliable, secure, and cost-effective meeting experience for all. For IT organizations, Webex Edge Connect removes friction from support and troubleshooting with end-to-end visibility and control of Webex traffic flows. Click here to learn more.
