3D Frame is also compatible with the 75+ built-in Webex collaboration apps. In addition, the service supports the use of third-party applications during an online meeting.
The apps also enable live meeting features such as polling, and 3D Frame tracks key user metrics for review to improve peer-to-peer collaboration.
Vection provides companies with a rich software development kit (SDK) to develop custom embedded applications tailored to each company’s use cases. Cisco also provides a rich set of resources for its SDK to support application development at all levels.
In June, Cisco officially announced the technology partnership ahead of its Cisco LIVE 2022 conference.

According to Jason Copeland, Vice President of Product for the Webex Platformthe service provides a VR space for companies to operate “in an integrated and secure way”.
And he added,
“Vection’s 3DFrame technology enables use cases for industrial design, engineering, and virtual spaces in an integrated and secure way.”
