Today, Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) announced it is now hosting a record eight billion calls monthly across its cloud calling platforms, the most of any cloud calling provider. To meet enterprises growing global needs, Cisco has also extended its domestic calling coverage to include the UK, with more than 65 countries now covered with its Cisco Calling Plans and Cloud Connected PSTN services – the most in the industry. Enterprises such as T-Mobile, Office Depot, Cigna Health, and CDK Global are relying on Webex Calling to power their businesses.
Webex Calling is part of the Webex Suite – the industry’s first suite for hybrid work that provides Cloud Calling, Messaging, Meetings, Polling, Events and Socio in a unified, secure offering. Reliability of calling systems is essential, as they are embedded in businesses’ everyday workflows. With a hospital, for example, if a call is delayed by even a minute, it can be the difference between life and death when a patient arrives in critical condition.
“With the move to hybrid work and increasing pressure to delight customers, there’s never been a greater need to unify communications across the entire workforce,” said Jeetu Patel, executive vice president and general manager, Cisco Security and Collaboration. “As enterprises look to migrate calling solutions to the cloud, Webex Calling offers the leading end-to-end, secure calling experience that makes unified communications a reality.”
