Multipoint Video Conferencing - Blue Jeans

  1. 1. Multipoint Video Conferencing A Deeper Dive into VC’s Most Talked About Feature Robb Woods1
  2. 2. A perspective from the past LOCATION A LOCATION C LOCATION B Typical video conferencing within an enterprise 2
  3. 3. Moving beyond the enterprise walls LOCATION A LOCATION C DESKTOP VIDEO MOBILE LOCATION B Shift towards multipoint video conferencing 3
  4. 4. Emerging endpoint optionsPast Now Conference Room  Room-based video systems Room-based video  Smartphones systems  Tablets IT involvement  Soft clients  Video enabled IP Phones  Web browser  USB Smart Cameras (TelyHD)  Self-service 4
  5. 5. Business drivers for multipoint video conferencing  Business is global  Executives are on the move  Teleworking is on the rise  Video is proven to be more effective 5
  6. 6. Trends driving multipoint conferencing  241M wireless video-enabled devices expected by 2015  Desktop and Laptop capabilities  Network speed & availability continues increase  BYOD (Bring your own Device)  BYOA (Bring your own Application) 6
  7. 7. Key ingredient of multi-point video conferencing MULTIPOINT LOCATION A LOCATION C MCU CONTROL UNIT (VIDEO BRIDGE) LOCATION B Multipoint video conferencing 7
  8. 8. Where is the MCU? MULTIPOINT MCU CONTROL UNIT (VIDEO BRIDGE) MCU MCU in an endpoint MCU as a standalone network element8
  9. 9. Today’s MCU options MCU Part of an Standalone Hybrid Cloud-based endpoint hardware Combination On-demand(Limited capacity) (Finite of on-premise scale, capacity) + cloud or Flexibility multi-tenancy9
  10. 10. “Multipoint” or “Multiplatform” or “Both” MULTIPOINT MCU CONTROL UNIT (VIDEO BRIDGE) Enterprise multipoint setup from a single Other vendor vendor platforms 10
  11. 11. Multipoint MCUs & Interoperability VENDOR C VENDOR A VENDOR A VENDOR A PLATFORM MCU MCU VENDOR B VENDOR A VENDOR A PLATFORM VENDOR A MCU as a video bridge Extending MCU to take over “interoperability” as a key feature 11
  12. 12. “Multiplatform” = “Multipoint”? Not the same Multiplatform speaks to the different types of video enabled devices that are supported in a multipoint call. Becoming more important as more video enabled devices are introduced. 12
  13. 13. Network and Infrastructure ENTERPRISE PRIVATE NETWORK REMOTE/MOBILE INTERNET WORKFORCE All endpoints within the Multipoint is driving the requirement for enterprise network seamless connectivity between “private” and 13 “public” networks
  14. 14. Today’s MCU options – Standalone hardware  More capacity/compute power – software license to open up additional capacity  Limited by finite capacity upgrades  Demands dedicated resources for management  CAPEX intensive  Limited update cycles  More options being added around:  Interoperability support  Firewall traversal/Border gateway14
  15. 15. Today’s MCU options – Hybrid  Multi-tenant architecture and/or on-premises + cloud hybrid model  Less CAPEX compared to standalone hardware option  Limits additional CAPEX with growth  Somewhat easier to use when used as a service  Dependencies  Capacity, performance and resiliency capped by the underlying hardware 15
  16. 16. Today’s MCU options – Cloud  New technology - apprehension for some  SaaS - Software as a Service MCU  Limited OPEX and almost no CAPEX  Scale as you grow  Wider interoperability options through software  Globally accessible – being in the cloud  High availability – easy to build redundancy and failover  Faster update cycles – more agile  Self Service or IT Control options16  Ease of use
  17. 17. Summary Why multipoint? Why consider multiplatform? MCU options What is right for you?17
