Video Collaboration projects are highly visible and, if well planned, can showcase the strategic value of IT to the organization. This paper, intended for IT leaders and personnel, explains considerations in planning and designing a medianet (media-optimized network) for an excellent user experience and operational efficiency:
- Different capabilities are required to support telepresence videoconferencing and web-based video portals
- Designing the medianet with future use scenarios in mind generally reduces costs and mitigates risk
- Design considerations include availability, bandwidth and burst, latency and jitter, and even telepresence room design
Reviewing considerations for the different types of business video presented in this paper can help you determine whether your educational institution has the internal resources to plan and design the deployment internally or would benefit from working with a trusted advisor.
