22nd April 2015 by Gillian Dalslaaen

In this first article of the new blog, we felt it was timely to touch on a topic that is at the heart of the Videxio service, Coverage. What does this mean and why is it important?

Welcome to the inaugural Videxio blog

Global Coverage

In this first article of the new blog, we felt it was right to touch on a topic that is at the heart of the Videxio service, Coverage. In our world, coverage means a global videoconferencing network that provides our customers with excellent videoconferencing quality across the globe. Although our recent press release on the extension of the Videxio network to Mars caused something of a sensation, it was of course premature. There were, however, certain elements of truth in the article that deserve highlighting.

Why is Coverage important?

When in a video call, it’s essential that the visuals are crystal clear and that there is no audio delay. Video calls are especially sensitive to network disruptions and as a result, one of the key aspects of the Videxio service is a dedicated video network that guarantees the highest quality experience at all times.

How do we ensure Coverage?

Videxio uses a network of data centers (PoPs) throughout the globe. From San Jose in the West to Sydney in the East, optimal call routing between the PoPs ensures minimum network delay, jitter and packet loss. In addition, the Videxio PoPs are hot swappable for maximum redundancy, reliability and security. Videxio users that are on the go will automatically be connected to the nearest data center on the network, minimizing exposure to the public internet and ensuring the best quality video experience at all times.

What does Coverage mean for users of videoconferencing?

High quality videoconferencing where it’s needed, when it’s needed. Videoconferencing is no longer just for the boardroom. Users can connect using a traditional video conferencing system, Microsoft Lync, WebRTC and/or audio from the device of their choice be it a tablet, a PC, a Mac or a smart phone. They can connect from their home office, their hotel room or the airport. From the UK, Russia or China. The quality will be the same. Any device, anywhere, any time. And someday … maybe even Mars.
