 CMR Cloud

CMR Cloud is a simple-to-use video collaboration service offered as an optional add-on to a Cisco WebEx Meeting Center subscription. It is delivered through the Cisco WebEx Cloud. Quickly enable meetings in the cloud with a low on-premises investment. Allow everyone to meet from any device from any location.

CMR Premises

CMR Premises is delivered through Cisco's proven on-premises architecture, which includes Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Expressway, Cisco TelePresence Server, Cisco TelePresence Conductor, and Cisco TelePresence Management Suite. Anyone can join a meeting from any Cisco Collaboration endpoint or third-party video endpoint. (Cisco WebEx is not yet available with the CMR Premises solution.)

CMR Hybrid

CMR Hybrid extends the CMR Premises solution to include WebEx users in the meeting. CMR Hybrid is delivered through an on-premises solution such as Cisco TelePresence Server or Cisco TelePresence Management Suite, and a subscription to Cisco WebEx Meeting Center.

Meet Your Way

Cisco Collaboration Meeting Rooms (CMR) allows everyone in your organization to enjoy a consistent video collaboration experience from mobile, desktop, or room systems. And they can access services and solutions whether they're at home or in the office. Users can meet any way they want, instantly, or easily schedule a meeting. They can also invite others to meet in their own personalized virtual meeting environment.

Whether you are meeting one-on-one, with a team, or with hundreds of people, CMR can scale to your needs. Cisco delivers solutions that help you meet others your way.

Connect Your Way

CMR is an enterprise-grade architecture for on-premises or cloud deployments. It allows for interoperability across most devices in a highly secure business-to-business or business-to-consumer environment. Participants choosing video can join from any Cisco Collaboration endpoint, third-party standards-based video endpoints, soft clients, or any WebEx-enabled mobile or desktop web client such as Jabber. Users can also join a CMR meeting using Microsoft Lync 2010 and 2013.

Consume Your Way

We believe that meeting rooms are not just cloud services. Customers should have the ability to build and deliver the same experience as they do on premises. They should expect the same data privacy, infrastructure investment protection, account control, and cost management. With CMR you can choose an on-premises deployment, cloud consumption from Cisco WebEx Cloud, or a hybrid model that combines the two.
