The Changing face of Enterprise Communication

Technology advancements are transforming the way that enterprises use videoconferencing – empowering new applications for visual interpersonal interactions that range from the trading floor to the customer support desk.

Videoconferencing is not new to enterprises. What is new is that videoconferencing is evolving from restrictive ‘room-based telepresence systems’ primarily used for executive meetings or studio-based broadcasting solutions for town hall-style conferences to easily implemented solutions that can be leveraged throughout the entire enterprise for improved business communications.

Traditional enterprise videoconferencing solutions have relied on hardware-based MCUs, which require proprietary equipment and are unable to work outside of the domain. These solutions are extremely restrictive, require substantial IT expertise to manage and unable to scale for enterprise-wide deployments.

Today, however, new technology advancements are creating an environment that can easily support and produce highly scalable, yet secure, low latency HD (high definition) quality video.

Enterprises can now easily launch and integrate videoconferencing from almost any of their third-party applications and platforms, including, for example, Instant Messaging (IM) solutions such as Skype, Lync and Office Communication or enterprise social media platforms like TIBCO’s Tibbr. The integration is virtually seamless with no disruption to the existing infrastructure.
