Find out how Cisco Spark Hybrid Media Service brings together the benefits of cloud and on-premises deployments.

Extend Cisco Spark meetings to everyone

Bring the whole team together with Cisco Spark meetings. They use your existing on-premises infrastructure and can overflow to the cloud.

Cisco Spark Hybrid Media Service empowers you to provide great meeting experiences to everyone in your organization. With Cisco Spark meetings, everyone can connect, share, and collaborate.

With Hybrid Media Service, you can keep media on premises, providing a high-quality user experience. You can also allow meetings to overflow to the cloud when needed. This optimizes the return on your on-premises investment, improves quality by minimizing latency, and keeps Internet bandwidth costs down.

Anyone can join a meeting from any standards-based video device or app. Join through on-premises or cloud-based call control or from Skype for Business.

The Hybrid Media Node at the heart of Hybrid Media Service is installed on a Cisco Unified Computing System server in your network. The Media Node registers to and is managed by the Cisco Collaboration Cloud. The Collaboration Cloud Management portal is your single point of management for your Cisco Spark environment. There you can get registration, reporting, and software updates for the Hybrid Media Node.
