Cisco Webex Control Hub

Control Hub is the unified administration portal for all Cisco collaboration services—calling, meetings, messaging, and devices. After the upgrade, you’ll receive the Control Hub account activation email at the email address you specify in the upgrade request.

Analytics. Leverage detailed interactive usage information for analytics, like:

  • A 10-minute data refresh means you can confidently report any time.

  • Meetings analytics and network quality reporting

  • Identify users with repetitive network quality issues and cross-launch into troubleshooting

  • Network quality KPIs and metrics for VoIP, video and join meeting time (JMT)

  • Trending charts with summary statistics

  • Correlations with connection type and region/location

Real-Time Troubleshooting.

  • Pinpoint a meeting where users are experiencing issues to troubleshoot real-time.

  • Drill down into meetings on a per participant basis and see detailed information about the audio, video, and sharing quality of a meeting. 

    See the CPU usage of the device a participant used to join the meeting.

  • Data is updated every minute so you can diagnose problems as they arise.

In addition, you can use Control Hub to easily add Cisco Webex cloud-registered boards and video devices, and set up Webex app security, data retention, and compliance policies for your organization.

Learn how to use Control Hub for FedRAMP here.


For upgraded Webex sites, Meetings user management will remain in Site Administration. In the near future, we will provide upgrade options to move Meetings user management to Control Hub as well.

Video Platform 2.0

We hope you'll love our stunning new video-centric collaboration experience. You don't need to take any action; after the upgrade, your users will automatically get this amazing experience:

  • Simultaneous individual video streams in a 5x5 grid view (instead of active speaker only).

  • Users can share video content in high frame rate along with audio.

  • Video-centric MP4 recordings in the cloud show the participants in high-resolution, full-screen video when no content is shared.

  • Up to 200 users can now join your meetings from video devices, up from 25.

  • See the entire participant list on Touch devices.

  • Users on dual-screen Cisco video devices can see participant video on both screens.

  • Control the meeting using numeric key commands with on-prem registered devices; lock and unlock the meeting, mute all participants, and start or stop recordings.

  • Join Webex events as a panelist on a video device.

  • Share whiteboards on capable Cisco video devices.

  • For improved security, users on video devices can wait in the visual lobby until the host admits them.

  • Users on video devices that belong to your organization can join unlocked meetings directly.

  • Rich integration with Webex Rooms systems including wireless control of your room systems and wireless content sharing right from the comfort of your Webex app.

To deliver an optimal experience, allow for a minimum of 2.0 Mbps for single-screen devices, and higher bandwidth with multiscreen devices.

Note the following:
  • Devices with the H.263 video codec display shared meeting content embedded inside the main video feed, together with other participants’ video.

  • Webex for Government doesn’t support Webex Room Series models that have reached End of Life, including CTS-series systems.

  • Cisco cannot guarantee the content-sharing experience when other conferencing bridges call into a Webex meeting.

Your Webex meetings will now allow up to 1,000 attendees to dial in over PSTN.
