ICU (GLOBAL) Ltd have launched their new product GlobalIPindex, a revolutionary IP platform. It is designed to act as a bridge to solve the problems of choppy transmissions for video conferencing over IP.
They have been working with Cisco systems and Prime Business Solutions to bring their product onto the market. Wainhouse Research are planning a white paper on GlobalIPindex. During testing at Telehouse Europe, ICU (GLOBAL) connected five different networks, five different sites and five service providers. "There is massive potential", says CEO Stephen McKenzie , who expects those currently using ISDN to move to IP."
As Stephen reported, "We are pioneers in the IP (Internet Protocol) network arena. A lot of the service providers are producing networks that are incompatible with each other.... and there is the security issue. Our product by providing a platform for the IP or ISDN network can give seamless and secure connections. This means an upgrade in the quality, and downgrade in the cost of video conference transmissions over IP."
Stephen gave a speech in London recently about how GlobalIPindex would "make the impossible possible." "We are the only company launching this kind of 'first to market' IP platform product. There is no other similar product, which means that now that it is launched we no longer have to work 'in secret.' We can offer service providers connectivity at a fixed revenue per month. This reduction in cost can be passed on to their customers. There are no broken links, and we can guarantee that their customers are not our customers. Today's networks are islands, but this product will allow networks to talk to each other."
GlobalIPindex offers connectivity for any type of audio, visual or video conference communication. It is suited for use by multinationals, international law firms, governments and universities...where international meetings are the norm. According to MRG research, the video conferencing market is worth $500million this year. By 2008, it is expected to be worth $8billion.
