Cisco, Monday introduced a new product, Cisco Meeting Server to serve as an integration server that lets Skype for Business users join a meeting held on an on-premises Cisco video conferencing system(VCS).
The software makes it simple to connect people in Cisco video rooms with others who are using Skype for Business. In fact, with this technology, everyone can join - regardless of whether they are using Polycom or Avaya gear, a mobile client or a WebRTC-enabled browser, said the company.
Cisco Meeting Server brings video, audio, and web communication together to meet the collaboration needs of the modern workplace. It is designed to 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.
Cisco Meeting Server has been optimized to be deployed with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, said Cisco.
