www.sterlitetech.blogspot.com Video-conferencing takes off as flights are grounded. Posted by Pulkit Bhatnagar. A volcanic eruption might just become the tipping point for videoconferencing! As the Icelandic volcano continues to send ash south and east towards Europe and Russia, (NASA’s brilliant images) more and more companies are moving towards video-conferencing and tele-presence solutions to do business. The head of Cisco’s Tele-presence Technology group, Fredrik Halvorsen, said recently that they have seen a huge spike in usage and interest for their telepresence solutions (see a telepresence video here). Another interesting comment came from the CEO of a Norway-based startup, Videoworks. Even Zimmer said the volcano would make business people think about the benefits of video-conferencing. One more company doing well is Regus, a company that provides meeting rooms and video-conferencing suites. Bookings of the suites jumped 75% in the US, and 108% across the U.K., says Guillermo Rotman, president of the Regus Group Americas. But what I really liked, was when Norway’s Prime Minister, Jens Stoltenberg, got stuck at New York, he just took out his iPad and began doing his governmental duties using the Internet. Talk about a PM who’s showcasing why his country is among the most tech-savvy telecom markets! I am sure if you have corresponded with people in Europe recently, you would have come across atleast one out-ofoffice Video-conferencing takes off as flights are grounded. message due to the volcanic eruption. Travellers are stranded at airports, frustration is rising, and losses due to missed deadlines or business meetings are piling up. I know of some friends stuck in Europe who have been using Skype to reach out to family and bosses in India. Their time at the airport or hotel is spent trying to work remotely or in watching movies/playing games online. Bottomline – everyone’s tying up bandwidth; while losing out on time that could be spent with family or working more productively. Enter Video-conferencing!!! Lets look at the benefits of video-conferencing: 1. Less travel-related expenses (airfare, hotel, foreign exchange, food, etc). 2. Quicker decision-making possibilities and turn-around response times. Reduced down-time. 3. Opportunities to collaborate with multiple people in multiple locations simultaneously without worrying about logistical details. 4. Non-productive time and energy savings. In fact, utilisation in pursuing other revenue-generating ideas or quality family time. 5. More effective presentation possibilities. (Tech staff can show through video how to repair a damaged part without having to travel and ascertain what the problem is. Savings for both!) 6. Reduced risk of travel-related injury or problems like passport issues, security problems, getting stuck at airports due to missed/cancelled flights or over-active volcanoes. 7. Environmental benefits. All the fuel saved will definitely lead to a cleaner and greener planet. Implications: The more video the world uses, the more bandwidth gets utilised. The more bandwidth is required, the more broadband networks will need to be deployed. The more broadband becomes a necessity, the more optical fiber demand will grow. Ergo, More Video = More Fiber.
