It wants to take the perspective of helping businesses continue running in what it deems rather unfavorable working conditions. It specifically targets promoting the strategy of employees working from home.

Many companies are raising concerns over those workers that come back after international travels. They have been asking those works to work remotely.
Business around the globe is almost grinding to a halt, and Cisco promises to help. The company is widely known for its Webex services that have been facilitating meetings between participants. These have been meetings held by about 50 participants. The duration has been a time-span of almost 40 minutes. However, Cisco wants to make additions to this. The company discloses its plan to increase the time of the meeting to be unlimited. In terms of the participants, the company is determined to move the number from what it has been to 100. This is a massive change that will undoubtedly help a great deal in these trying times before the world fins a solution for the “elephant” in the room.
The business guru outlines that there is a need to complement its current VoIP capabilities. It thinks that the move to introduce the toll-dial-in numbers will help a huge deal.

However, Cisco promises to play its part in making matters a little bit easy. Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) is one of the major businesses in support of employees working from home.
