Our chair, Paul Nikolich has delegated the conduct of the EC electronic ballot on the following motion to me and approved the corresponding early close.



Our current webex licenses terminate Aug 12, 2020.   With the recent COVID situation, we have received a quote has from Cisco that would provide 802 with 5 licenses (min requirement), each license capable of supporting 1000 participants, and Global Call Back Audio for a total annual cost of $2,160.   Note – this increases the total number of webex licenses 802 currently has from 4 to 5, increases the number of participants from 100 to 1000 per license, and decreases the cost from 2,577.60 to $2,160.


This was compared against Zoom, the other teleconferencing tool used by 802.  The best Zoom option for 802 would be the “Business” plan, which offers licenses at $200/year, with a min requirement of 10, each license capable of supporting 300 participants, and limited phone access globally (see below) for a total annual cost of $2,000.


Zoom Phone access - Zoom pricing includes a POTS dial-up option, dial-in numbers are not available in all regions. Notable omissions include mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan, and Thailand. Participants in those areas could access the voice by built-in VoIP, or by dialing across a border.  Zoom does offer an option of dial-up numbers in all countries, but the account holder is billed on a per-minute basis and the resulting charges are prohibitive.



Thank you for your prompt attention.
