AGT Releases New Mobile Video Conferencing and UC Technologies Information Portal
Applied Global Technologies (AGT), provider of managed services and UC technology for interactive video conferencing solutions, has announced a new website featuring essential information on mobile video conferencing and unified communications research that will help reshape the future of telepresence and UC technology solutions. Video conferencing is vital to the everyday functioning of business enterprises and government agencies and AGT has been focussing on the development of a wide range of UC technologies as well as managed and cloud based video conferencing solutions that can drive and supplement the future of video communications.
The new AGT web site has been designed as a navigational guide which will provide detailed information on the various managed and cloud based video conferencing solutions and UC technology solutions developed by the company. Video and UC managers, department heads, IT Directors, governmental, and educational institutions and enterprise partners of AGT leverage the company's solutions for enabling video mobility in conference rooms and over their mobile devices. While there are a number of other manufacturers and service providers who provide similar services, their solutions are fraught with access and service limitations and high costs. AGT's solutions, however, have been developed to deliver optimized video mobility over a number of mobile devices and across HD video conference rooms cost-effectively and without technology complexities and restrictions in service and access.
A white paper from AGT titled “Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) for Video Conferencing” analyses the “Market trends: Videoconferencing Worldwide, 2011” Gartner report which says that video-enabled UC deployments by organizations is expected to grow 340 percent by end of the year 2012. The paper specifically discusses how enterprises can benefit from Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).
Another white paper titled “UC Video Platform for Ubiquitous Video Conferencing” sheds light on the effectiveness of the company's ENCORE UC platform which is capable of addressing the current challenges faced in the area of true video mobility. While discussing the various solutions offered by AGT to address these problems the paper also highlights how AGT's Mobile Pathway protocol has been designed to enable enterprise customers from different networks to connect with other network users via the open and secure network web port.
The white paper titled “Predicting MCU Port Requirements of Mobile Video” leverages a model of prediction by Danish mathematician A.K. Erlang in identifying required capacities of the port in providing mobile videoconferencing workforce support. Also included in the new AGT website is an interactive tool that leverages the Erlang model to enable site visitors input their own specific scenarios for usage.
