It can be challenging to join a virtual meeting room (VMR) or a third-party UC Platform like Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Google Meet when your device is using your home network (or other external network). This challenge has been solved and it is now possible for users of Cisco Webex video conferencing endpoints to join a VMR or any third party UC platform with one-click using Synergy JOIN - We call it JOIN from Home.
See demo video
What are the challenges joining from home?
- A Cisco endpoint located in an employee’s home office cannot be provisioned with a one touch dial experience if it is outside the Company’s network. Managing home users private routers, using VPN’s or having static IP addresses at these locations is generally not an option for most enterprise businesses
- Find the URI address to dial. Invitations to video meetings look different from all vendors (MS Teams, Webex, Zoom etc) and at times it is difficult to read out the URI
- Typing in addresses containing a combination of alphanumeric (a-z, 0-9) and special characters (@,_.-/) to connect to the conference
