Cisco seeking to take remote work to new levels

With the new Webex Desk Hub, it’s super simple to make any available desk your personal space.

Cisco is doing the most lately with yet another announcement around three new webex devices aimed at empowering the remote worker. The announcement follows a wave of innovation the company also recently announced at the WebexOne event. The new devices joining Webex are Webex Desk Camera, Webex Desk Hub and Webex Desk.

In addition to empowering the remote worker, the new webex devices seek to enable a safe return to the office environment. Something that was unheard of generally let alone be considered prior to all that’s taken place this year, it’s clear that the future of work and smart workplace will involve a combination of remote and on-site interactions, known as hybrid-work. 

As the hybrid workplace begins to take shape, it’s apparent and equally important to have seamless, smart digital experiences regardless of whether an individual is at at home or in the office – or somewhere in between. Together with the rest of Cisco’s intelligent portfolio, the new devices recently announced provide such experiences.

“Customers are telling us that they are rethinking their workplaces —many are moving towards hybrid work with more people working at home and more hotdesks in the office,” said Reem Asaad, Vice President, Cisco Middle East & Africa. “So we are excited to be introducing two new devices, Webex Desk Camera and Webex Desk, that can be used at home or in the office as well as a brand new device called the Webex Desk Hub—a first for the industry—that allows personalized working in a shared space.”

  • Webex Desk Camera. Packed with the intelligent features you already know from our video portfolio – like facial recognition and occupancy metrics – the Webex Desk Camera is perfect for both the home or the office.
  • Preview: Webex Desk Hub. With many organizations rethinking and reconfiguring their office space, getting back to the office may mean less desk space and more hotdesking for employees. With the new Webex Desk Hub, it’s super simple to make any available desk your personal space. 
  • Preview: Webex Desk. Just like it’s “big sister” the Webex Desk Pro, the Webex Desk allows you to engage your audience by using slides or videos as your backdrop while you present—a feature we call “immersive presenter”. It transforms your experience by enabling you to connect to meetings, co-create and stay productive whether you’re at home or in the office.
