Meet Your Way
Cisco Collaboration Meeting Rooms (CMRs) allow anyone in your organization to enjoy consistent video collaboration experiences from mobile, desktop, or room systems, with services and solutions they can use at home or in the office. Users can meet any way they want, instantly, or by scheduling a meeting. Or they can invite others to meet in their own, personalized virtual meeting environment.
Whether you are meeting one to one, with a team, or with hundreds of people, CMR can scale to your needs. Cisco delivers solutions that help you meet with others, your way.
Connect Your Way
CMR is an enterprise-grade architecture for collaboration with media resources based on premises or from the cloud. This gives you choice of how to deploy video conferencing. All of our solutions allow for interoperability across most video devices in a highly secure business-to-business or business-to-consumer environment.
Participants can join using video from any Cisco Collaboration endpoint, third-party standards-based video endpoints, soft clients, and any Cisco WebEx-enabled mobile or desktop web client such as Cisco Jabber. Users can also join a CMR meeting using Microsoft Lync 2010 and 2013 (not currently available with CMR Cloud).
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 on premises when concerned with data privacy, infrastructure investment, account control, and cost management. CMR offers customers a choice between on-premises deployment or cloud consumption from the Cisco WebEx Cloud, or the ability to mix the two in a hybrid model.
