Cisco To Upgrade Webex Video Meeting Software Catering +600 Million Participants

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

As per reports, Cisco (CSCO) will update and enhance its Webex video meeting software with the addition of new features such as background noise cancellation and transcription service in 15 different languages. The meeting software currently caters to more than 600 million meeting participants almost double the number it recorded in March before the pandemic pushed a major shift to online meetings, learning, and events.

According to market research firm Facts & Factors, the global video conferencing market expected to reach $9.2 billion by 2027 from $4.8 billion in 2019.

“They’ve created a machine learning model…any background noise…can be detected and suppressed, and then speech actually gets amplified,” stated Jeetu Patel, Cisco’s general manager for security and applications business in a Reuters report.

With the acquisition of tech companies such as BabbleLabs, Cisco has been able to add features to Webex like the removal of background noise like a vacuum cleaner.

Recently, Cisco also added Slido to its list of buys to make the events platform more interactive engaging audiences with real-time feedback, dynamic polls, quizzes, word clouds, and surveys.

“We fundamentally believe that how people engage with large groups of people will change, and as a result, you will see us do more and more innovation in that space,” Patel added.

The company is also planning to build a platform with users to host a Webex events session with up to 25,000 fully participating attendees and adding up to 100,000 gradually.
