Cisco Webex Teams is a widely used collaboration solution that keeps people and teamwork connected anytime, anywhere, on any device. With the Webex Teams app, users create secure virtual workspaces for everything, from completing short-term projects to solving longer-term business opportunities. Day-to-day interactions with messaging and file sharing and editing can be enhanced with third-party app integrations for a seamless workflow. Webex Teams can increase productivity and engagement with real-time communications, starts calls instantly, and provides high-quality video meetings with screen-sharing at the touch of a button. Existing licenses for Webex Teams are required to use the connector app and they are available directly from Cisco.
"Webex Teams customers can connect to a remote mentor or support team hands-free when using our M-Series or Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses. The use of our smart glasses connector app for the Webex Teams video conferencing service provides our customers with a wearable and hands-free version of this application developed specifically for the Vuzix smart glasses. It allows them to login, connect and share their POV (point-of-view) feed real-time from the camera of Vuzix smart glasses," said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer. "The Webex Teams service accessed through the connector app enables not only one-to-one support calls but also one-to-many, which allows remote workers to share what they are seeing with all of the users that have joined the meeting simultaneously."
