Cisco’s expansion into global markets continues. After recent expansion into the South Korea market, we are excited to announce the all new point of presence (PoP) in South America, enhancing the Webex Calling quality, security, and reliability for customers in this region. With this introduction, our global footprint now includes 16 data centers worldwide. This new expansion demonstrates Cisco’s commitment to South America market and our focus on providing the best services throughout the world by investing in infrastructure and resources resulting in providing strong value for our customers. data center
This new local PoP provides a path for all call media (voice and video) traffic to stay within South America. Previously all Webex services in South America were managed through data centers outside the region. Having calls stay local provides enhanced call quality and reduced latency, and this, combined with support for local media establishment on Webex Calling, provides for the best possible media quality for our South American Webex customers.
This new infrastructure not only enhances the collaboration experience for Webex customers but provides an opportunity for growth within South America. Cisco is well prepared to offer extensive Webex services such as Meetings, Calling, Messaging, Events, and more to South American customers for the foreseeable future.
