Dedicated India Webex infrastructure will enable Cisco to offer India-specific pricing for customers, lowering the cost by over 50%
Cisco said that it has invested in a dedicated India Webex infrastructure as well as the appropriate regulatory approvals to boost Webex adoption across the country.
The India Webex infrastructure is the first of its type in the nation, with a dedicated data centre and is backed by Cisco Secure products and solutions to assure best-in-class data privacy and security.
The data centre will provide a variety of services to customers while also allowing Cisco to maintain ongoing expansion, provide a rich user experience, and provide industry-leading security and management throughout the Webex Suite.
Furthermore, local dedicated Webex infrastructure would reduce operational costs, boost technical efficiencies, and enable Cisco to offer customers India-specific pricing.
Furthermore, the data centre will enable Cisco to collaborate with more Indian start-ups, clients, partners, and service providers, allowing new innovations to reach the market faster.
This development is a result of the enormous and ongoing trend toward hybrid work patterns. According to the Cisco Hybrid Work Study 2022, nearly three-quarters of Indian employees choose a hybrid work environment in the future.
Cisco has seen a subsequent rise in preference for hybrid work across sectors, with Webex in India consistently recording the second-highest usage after the U.S. since March 2020.
Recognizing the growing need for more flexible work models, the Government is also taking the lead in building regulatory frameworks to facilitate hybrid work across the nation.
“Our goal is to create a more inclusive work experience for the three-fold growth expected in the number of digital workers in India by 2030. If we do this right, we can level the playing field and create new opportunities, regardless of geographic borders, socioeconomic background, or language. With hundreds of millions of monthly participants, Webex is one of the few platforms with the global scale to drive this transformation, and the new data center is the latest in a series of investments Cisco has made to support the accelerating shift to hybrid work in India.”Dave West, President, Cisco APJC:
“This is a significant milestone in our endeavor to power hybrid work at scale and speed. As more companies go hybrid, the demand for secure and adaptable hybrid work solutions will increase. With this investment we are looking to capture a growing market that is expected to reach over USD 250 million in India by 2025. With dedicated India Webex infrastructure, we can now offer enhanced performance at a much lower cost to our customers, and empower their move to a successful hybrid working future.”Daisy Chittilapilly, President, Cisco India & SAARC:
“Webex by Cisco already has a widespread global data center footprint in the industry, which complies with a range of certifications and country-specific regulations. With this announcement, Cisco has invested in a 360-degree approach to privacy, security, and compliance, marking a significant step towards helping Indian businesses unlock the potential of their hybrid workforces.”Sandeep Mehra, Managing Director, Collaboration, APJC:
