Nefsis Video Conferencing Cloud Better Serves
Branch Office Networks

computing versus fixed-capacity, hardware-based infrastructure
SAN DIEGO — August 10, 2011 — Online services innovator
Nefsis® announced today the top 5 advantages cloud-based
conferencing offers branch office networks in financial services and
similar markets where multiple office locations prevail. Chief among
the advantages are successful operation over existing networks, a
benefit of Nefsis dynamic scalable video; and lower total cost, a
benefit provided by cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS)
delivery. Today, branch office video conferencing is easily tested
and deployed with little to no capital expense and without costly
video-specific routers or other infrastructure upgrades.
Branch office networks typically found in banks, credit unions,
insurance firms and brokerage houses evolved over time. They support
multiple locations and employ a mix of public and virtual private
network (VPN) connections, among other technical characteristics.
These networks are often difficult or impossible to change in the
short term, and the number of locations brings additional budget
pressures to bear. In addition, virtually all financial service
In this setting, there are two general approaches to meet the
growing demand for business-grade video conferencing: 1)
installation of video-specific routers, multipoint control units
(MCUs), collaboration servers and the like; and 2) providing these
technical capabilities via cloud-based delivery. The latter is a new
approach that, in the case of Nefsis, leverages dynamic scalable
video, automated bandwidth throttling, parallel processing and other
software-based technologies unavailable even a few years ago.
The following are the top 5 advantages of Nefsis cloud-based
delivery in branch office networks:
over existing networks. Nefsis dynamic
scalable video and automated bandwidth throttling deliver
high-quality video over existing networks, there is no requirement
for dedicated connections or guaranteed bandwidth availability.
Inexpensive, low or
no CAPEX. Nefsis cloud
computing eliminates the need for up-front investment in
video-specific routers and gateway servers.
to expand. Cloud computing is highly scalable, unlike
fixed-capacity equipment that requires an installation project to
expand or bring additional sites online.
collaboration tools. Nefsis advanced collaboration tools
are a standard feature, additional collaboration servers are not
standard security. The Nefsis cloud uses SSL/TLS
encryption with third-party public key infrastructure (PKI),
the standard in online banking and e-commerce.
“We’re seeing a lot of momentum
in banks and credit unions where branch office considerations highlight
the advantages of cloud-based video conferencing. Bandwidth-friendliness,
lower cost, and easier management prevail in this segment,”
said Tom Toperczer, Nefsis Vice President of Marketing.
