WebEx page redesign and
There have been
improvements to the user experience for web pages in WebEx centers. The WebEx
pages now have a modern design, but the interaction has not changed, so all the
functionality remains the same.
features have also been added to increase our current level of accessibility.
The redesign is a
phased approach, beginning with core pages and flows. (We will continue to
redesign other pages and centers in subsequent releases.)
- Global elements (such as
the header, top navigation, and the left menu bar) and core pages (such as the
log in page, the My WebEx > My Meetings page, and the My WebEx > Training
page) have been redesigned and have improved accessibility
- The "Welcome" page has been
optimized and has been renamed to "Home."
- The join by number page can
now be used to look up a Personal Room by the host's username.
Updates were made
to the Site Administration tool. For more information, see
Site Administration Release Notes.
Enhanced audio experience
with wideband audio on WebEx VoIP and WebEx Audio
meetings and VoIP-only meetings now have a superior meeting experience with
wideband audio when users are connecting to audio using their computers (VoIP).
also refers to high-definition voice. Wideband audio captures wider frequency
range and therefore provides clearer audio connections.
Windows, Mac, and
Linux desktop applications, Apple iPad and iPhone devices, and Android mobile
devices are supported. Wideband audio is also supported for network-based
recording of VoIP only and WebEx Audio meetings.
Codec (OPUS) is now the default codec for WebEx VoIP attendees. The OPUS codec
has superior Packet Loss Concealment (PLC) and Forward Error Correction (FEC)
and is more resilient to packet loss. As a result, it provides better audio
quality in less ideal conditions.
It has a better
noise-suppression algorithm that provides a much better experience when using
audio through a computer, even without headset. It includes enhanced jitter
buffer for UDP-based VoIP traffic. Reduced delay and data loss with smaller
packet sampling size of 20 ms.
operating on Solaris, Windows mobile devices, and Blackberry devices will
continue to use narrowband audio for VoIP audio. If a user joins a meeting from
any of those devices, the narrowband audio is used for the whole meeting.
Company Address Book and
Personal Address Book in Site Administration and My WebEx
In the Company
Address Book, which is available in Site Administration and in My WebEx, and
the user's Personal Address Book, which is available in My WebEx, multiple
contacts can be imported only by using a comma- or tab-delimited values file
(.csv). To upload a comma- or tab-delimited .csv file, select the file to
upload, select the type of delimiter your file uses (Tab or Comma), and then
select Import. The WebEx Address Book format can also be exported from Site
