Cisco® Meeting Server brings video, audio, and web communication together to meet the collaboration needs of the modern workplace. The Cisco Meeting App allows anyone to create, join, and run meetings easily, from room or desktop video systems, mobile clients, or browsers. Cisco Meeting Management allows operators to monitor and control meetings, providing a white-glove service.
Cisco Meeting Server helps ensure that everyone gets a consistent, familiar meeting experience, whether they’re joining a meeting using Cisco or third-party video endpoints, a Cisco Jabber® client, Cisco Meeting App (native or via a WebRTC-compatible browser), or Skype for Business. Any number of people can join a meeting, up to the maximum limit supported by the cluster, and bandwidth usage is optimized to reduce cost. Cisco Meeting Server provides a user experience that is simple, intuitive, and easy. It scales easily for small or large deployments, allowing capacity to be added incrementally as needed. The all-in-one, user-based licensing model allows you to buy the services you need today and add more licenses as your organization grows. Combined, Cisco Meeting Server and its licensing model provide you with flexibility to meet the changing needs of your organization.
Cisco Meeting App runs on multiple platforms—Mac, PC, iOS, and WebRTC-compatible browsers—allowing a wide range of end users access to its capabilities. The app is the user’s portal to create one or multiple spaces, which they can then modify (for example, change the space’s name, manage members, add PINs, etc.). Joining a meeting space is as simple as clicking one button, which then provides a simple, intuitive interface to manage the meeting (see who is in the meeting, add, drop, or mute participants, etc.).
Cisco Meeting Management is a tool for operators to monitor and manage meetings on Cisco Meeting Server. Administrators can easily monitor all active meetings with controls, such as add, drop, or mute participants; change layouts; start or stop recording or streaming; and more.
Cisco Meeting Server, Cisco Meeting App, and Cisco Meeting Management have been optimized to be deployed with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Expressway™, or Cisco TelePresence® Video Communication Server (VCS) for call control; Cisco Expressway for firewall traversal; and Cisco Tele
