Cisco says Webex video-calling service is seeing record usage too, even as competitor Zoom draws all the attention (CNBC)

People spent 5.5 billion meeting minutes on Webex in the first 11 business days of this month, Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins said on CNBC on Tuesday.

Just got an update from the service operation team where I work. WebEx has become unusable due to load. It’s a global problem. Hopefully, Cisco can add capacity to meet demand.

I am concerned with how much the outsourced services like Zoom, WebEx, Teams, can handle the demand. The services are being stress-tested this week.

According to POTUS and others, this is our life for the next five months.
