Cisco WebEx Meeting Server (CWMS)
Cisco WebEx Meetings Server is a highly secure, fully virtualized, behind-the-firewall conferencing solution that combines audio, video, and web conferencing in a single solution. With Cisco WebEx Meetings Server, you can respond to organizational requirements for higher productivity and employee-led innovation, as well as support more dynamic collaboration and flexible work styles.
With Cisco WebEx Meetings Server, you can:
• Meet stringent requirements for data privacy and security by bringing Cisco WebEx conferencing behind the corporate firewall
• Build on your existing investment in Cisco Unified Communications, extending your existing implementation of Cisco Unified Communications Manager to conferencing
• Enhance individual and team productivity and collaboration with high-quality audio, video, and web conferencing
• Enable mobile workers to be more productive and engaged with the ability to participate in conferences using a variety of mobile devices
• Easily manage your entire conferencing environment with the solution's Administration Dashboard
How Cisco WebEx Meetings Server Works
Cisco WebEx Meetings Server is a virtualized, software-based solution that runs on Cisco UCS® x86 Servers and VMware. It uses virtual appliance technology for rapid turn-up of services to end users. With Cisco WebEx Meetings Server, there are two options for enabling mobile users to more securely access WebEx conferences without going through a VPN. The first option is to deploy reverse proxy (or edge servers) in the enterprise perimeter (or DMZ). The second option, is to deploy the reverse proxy servers behind your internal firewall, which eliminates all DMZ components and related information security concerns.
In addition, Cisco WebEx Meetings Server uses simple port forwarding on ports 80 (HTTP) and 443 (SSL) to minimize the number of ports that need to be opened in your external and internal firewalls. Backend servers integrate with Cisco Unified Communications Manager (UCM) for high-quality teleconferencing.
In large enterprise deployments, critical manageability requirements include user provisioning as well as the ability for users to sign in using their corporate credentials. Cisco WebEx Meetings Server supports these requirements by enabling you to utilize LDAP directory services for user management and authentication, or use the industry-standard SAML 2.0 Single Sign On.
