Huntington Beach, CA, United States, 2011/05/04 - TIA 2011: Inside the Network includes BrightCom, Polycom and Masergy in a panel discussion regarding business drivers of telepresence and video conferencing and how to navigate current challenges with hosted IT video services - BrightCom.com /TIA2011.Org.
BrightCom, the performance leader in integrated telepresence and video conferencing solutions announces the presence of CEO, Bob McCandless at the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) 2011: Inside the Network conference occurring on May 17th through the 20th in Dallas, Texas. Mr. McCandless will be participating in a panel discussion entitled “Visual Communications, Video and Presence” alongside representatives from Polycom and Masergy.
The three panelists, along with Telepresence Options publisher Howard Lichtman as moderator, will provide their expertise on the solutions and business drivers to a new market of visual-based collaboration products and services. Additionally, the panel and audience will discuss how, in spite of the potential of video conferencing in business, issues of interoperability, quality, security and reliability are causing resource-challenged IT organizations to consider hosted services as a way to offload the support burden and reduce overall costs. The panelists will address how service providers can leverage an already-familiar solution session border controllers to navigate the challenges involved with deploying hosted IP interactive video services.
According to Mr. McCandless,“While telepresence and video conferencing adoption in businesses is skyrocketing, there are still issues that are crucial for businesses to understand in order to conduct an efficient video conference. Many of our customers have dealt with the highly challenging task of building high quality MPLS connections across the globe to ensure clear communication. Leveraging pre-configured video conference exchanges to remove that responsibility and cost is clearly a better way to reduce the total cost of ownership and increase return on investment.”
“I am excited to be a part of the TIA 2011 and look forward to joining fellow representatives of the industry to discuss these issues,” concluded Mr. McCandless.
“Visual Communications, Video and Presence” will take place on May 19th at 4:45 pm at the Gaylord Texan Hotel in Dallas, Texas. The TIA 2011: Inside the Network (tia2011.org) is a unique physical and virtual event focused on bringing together the telecommunications and information and communications technology (ICT) industries to confront the challenges of security, reliability and sustainability of the Network.
