Cisco Webex Calling
While Cisco’s Webex cloud-based collaboration solution can be a great way for businesses to interact, the options to connect the PSTN outside of Cisco’s native calling plans can mean considerable technical complexity and the need for equipment outside the Cisco cloud. Callroute keeps things simple by offering quick and easy set up for PSTN calling and availability of local phone numbers in 60+ countries.

What is Cisco Webex Calling?
Webex Calling is a VoIP cloud-based enterprise phone system. It allows businesses to manage all their services and users in one place through the cloud, which eliminates the need for a physical phone system, and by that, reduces costs. However, Webex Calling allows for hybrid calling too, so it also supports PBX calls to its VoIP.
Integrated Calling With Webex: The Main Options
Integrating external calling with Cisco Webex is the lynchpin for enabling Unified Communication. There are three main options for integrating external calling with Webex.
Cisco Webex Calling Plans
Cisco offers its own bundled outbound plans to enable external calling with Webex.
- Integrate via Cisco Partners
- Per user pricing
- Available in over 10 countries
- Buy numbers to use with Cisco
