IVCi Launches IntelliNetsm
Private IP Video Conferencing Network in 46 Countries
Also Announces The Industry's First "Trade in Your ISDN Risk Free!" Program.
HAUPPAUGE, NY - February 13, 2002 - International Video-Conferencing, Inc. (IVCi), (www.ivci.com), ranked 81 on the Inc 500 list of the nation's fastest growing privately-held companies for 2001, today announced the world-wide launch of IntelliNet*, the intelligent video collaboration network. This revolutionary service provides customers with unlimited, business-quality, secure, private IP video conferencing for face-to-face communication between their worldwide office locations.
"IntelliNet boasts the world's first intelligent collaboration network designed to provide both Quality of Service (QoS) and Class of Service (CoS) for video conferencing environments," said Adam Zeitsiff, Chief Executive Officer of IVCi. "The wide-scale deployment of video conferencing requires a stable, secure and flexible network that allows end-users to communicate easily with anyone in their company. IntelliNet meets this requirement by providing self-service web scheduling, automatic launching of video calls, transparent management of the video environment (including confidence checking of video end-points and the network), as well as multipoint bridging and IP to ISDN gateway services. In addition, IntelliNet allows customers to place a fixed monthly cost on all of their intra-company video conferencing."
The unmatched reliability and performance offered by IntelliNet is a result of a global integration with the SAVVIS Communications (NASDAQ: SVVS) Intelligent IP Network**. Built solely on the SAVVIS backbone, a single global IP network ensuring uniform performance worldwide, IntelliNet delivers the security and performance of a private network with the flexibility and cost effectiveness of the Internet. The SAVVIS network is the first in the industry to deliver a video Class of Service (CoS) based on advanced Quality of Service (QoS) that allows network traffic to be prioritized and segregated based on the customer application.
Some of the key benefits and differentiators of The IntelliNet IP Video Conferencing Network include:
- A switched (not routed) ATM network in 46 countries that uniquely provides an ATM video Class of Service (CoS) directly to the customer premises
- A fixed-cost, unlimited use program for every IntelliNet video network package
- 6-FREE hours of multi-point bridging included with every IntelliNet package
- Web-scheduling and auto call launching with the award-winning GSS
- An industry-leading management engine that provides real-time end-point and network confidence checking every 90 seconds
- A Network Operations Center in St. Louis, MO, with redundant NOCs in London and Singapore, as well asa 110,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art, earthquake-proof 24x7 data center to house the IntelliNet servers and infrastructure equipment
- A modular service offering allowing customers to choose video only or video and data solutions
- Flexibility that allows customers to use their own video bridges and/or ISDN gateways
- Full project management to deliver a turnkey solution
"Our goal with IntelliNet is to provide a solution that will ensure video conferencing traffic is handled in a business-critical nature, with tools and a network architecture specifically designed to provide the most secure, reliable and unbreakable IP video network in the world," said Robert Swing, President of IVCi. "We are so confident that IntelliNet is the industry's best solution for private IP video networking that we are offering an unprecedented 'Trade in Your ISDN Risk Free!' promotion to our customers as a part of the initial launch of the network."
The IVCi "Trade in Your ISDN - Risk Free!" program will allow customers to install The IntelliNet IP Video Conferencing Network at up to three of their video conferencing locations in the United States with a no-risk guarantee. If the IntelliNet service does not provide the highest level of quality and business-critical service as defined in the company's stringent Service Level Agreement, the customer can cancel the connection after the first month without any further obligation to IVCi. This offer is an 'industry first' in that it allows a company to ensure they make the right choice when trading in their ISDN lines for a superior IP video network like IntelliNet. Under this promotion, IVCi is also waiving the one-time installation charge for the IntelliNet connection at sites participating in the Risk Free program.
At the forefront of IntelliNet is Chris Böttger. Recently hired as the Vice President of Technology & Operations for IVCi, Mr. Böttger will manage all of the daily marketing, technology, operations and customer support responsibilities for IntelliNet. In this role, he will work in conjunction with our customers and partners to continually add feature and functionally enhancements to this industry- leading video collaboration network. Prior to joining IVCi, Mr. Böttger spent four and a half years in various high-profile roles at PictureTel Corporation in the U.K. and in the U.S., with the last year of his tenure spent as the Senior Product Manager for the company's new iPower products.
Available immediately throughout the United States, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific markets, The IntelliNet IP Video Conferencing Network is the first turnkey alternative for enterprise organizations seeking a cost-effective, business-critical video conferencing and collaboration network for their global meeting environment. A complete overview of the entire IntelliNet offering, as well as more information on all of the video conferencing products and services available at IVCi, is available on the world-wide-web at the company's newly launched web-site, http://www.ivci.com.
