As video has become the preferred method of choice for communication in organizations, this proliferation has introduced new technology challenges to decision makers wanting to deploy video communication. Employees now demand a corporate strategy beyond bringing their own device ("BYOD") to the workplace, and seek connectivity to participants from different networks, applications and devices to corporate video communication. Thus making video communications as natural and simple as corporate voice communication as well as providing a n enhanced and efficient user experience and travel cost savings. These demands provide new challenges to the corporate information technology owners in terms of connectivity, ease of use and security.

In this webinar we will discuss technology trends and challenges in video communication protocols such as SIP, H.323 and network interaction with networks such as the Google Talk network (XMPP based).
