The IntelliNet Solution: Why Do I Need It?
To-date, video conferencing has been a tremendously valuable tool for businesses of all sizes, types and geographical location. However, there are numerous issues that have prevented video conferencing from becoming fully deployed within organizations for use by almost every department.
Many of the issues relate back to the ISDN network: reliability is one of the main problems, in particular long distance calls, where running a 384K video call requires 6 ISDN channels to be routed around the country and to be re-synchronized at the far end. The result is images that may freeze, screens going black or artifacts seen on the screen whenever a channel drops or loses framing. Establishing 6 connections on its own can lead to frustration with the call not establishing the first time. User's expectations of video conferencing are that it should work like the telephone every time.
One of the most important benefits of utilizing IntelliNet, is the positive effect is will have on your company's bottom-line. Recent events have shown that overspends can easily occur with video conferencing as ISDN is billed from the telephone company on a per minute basis. If the usage goes up dramatically, then so do the costs accordingly. IntelliNet is the only solution in the industry that allows a customer to place a fixed monthly cost on all of your intra-company video conferencing calls. This allows you to turn video into a tool that can be used anytime, anywhere in the company, by almost anyone, without concern for exponential reoccurring telecommunications costs.
In addition, security is often a concern as the ISDN runs over public networks and often carry mission critical meeting information. The costs of running 384K calls has resulted in some users running at 128k and thus reducing the overall performance considerably. This often leads to the equipment not being fully utilized and as such, the productivity enhancements aren't met.
Management of pure ISDN based systems has been decentralized and ad hoc, making it difficult to support these systems and track their usage, often inhibiting the ability to easily scale the deployment.
Finally, deployment is often a challenge as many video resellers leave it to you to deal with the telephone companies to install ISDN, often escalating to real frustrations in dealing with these companies.
