Underscoring Shure’s commitment to providing exceptional audio experiences, the company is proud to announce a collaboration with Cisco, including approval of Microflex® Ecosystem hardware devices as part of the Webex Compatibility Program.
With Shure’s best in-class audio and Cisco’s market-leading Webex appliances, installers and end users can experience superior audio and video conferencing in rooms of all use-cases and sizes, including large training areas. Shure and Cisco have both independently tested and verified functionality across a wide range of devices, ensuring Microflex® Advance™ and MicroflexWireless products are optimized for select Webex devices with full installation guidance and other documentation provided for customer peace of mind.
The comprehensive solutions offer Webex-enabled rooms extensive flexibility with a wide combination of Shure’s Microflex Ecosystem of installed or wireless microphones, loudspeaker or audio conferencing processor to meet all types of conferencing and presentation needs. This flexibility and compatibility allow for streamlined setup and deployment across an entire enterprise, providing the highest quality of audio and video collaboration in any room.

The inclusion of Shure’s Microflex Advance in the Webex Compatibility Program leverages the power of Shure’s Steerable Coverage™ Technology and cutting-edge industrial design in all Webex-enabled meeting rooms. With mute, LED sync, and call status features available via the Webex Room Navigator touch panel, users can seamlessly manage their conferencing environment without requiring additional programming.
“Our goal is to elevate the conferencing environment and provide the highest quality meeting experiences that end users rave about,” said Paul Gunia, Director of Technology Partnerships at Shure. “Our joint installation partners should feel confident installing Shure's premium audio products alongside Webex’s world renowned IT endpoints.”
To support IT teams, installers, designers and users, Shure and Webex have co-created a comprehensive reference guide for setup and system design to help ensure successful meetings when combining the Microflex Ecosystem solutions with select Webex video conferencing endpoints.
