Session Abstract

There is no question that high quality videoconferencing adds value to any collaboration. But if this is the case, why do many organizations still not use it? If it too expensive? Too hard to use? Not reliable enough? Historically, all of these things have been true - but we now have a path forward. Speakers from Internet2, AARnet, and ESnet will discuss solutions to these problems as well as specific use cases of how their organizations successfully leverage high quality videoconferencing on a day to day basis. Specific topics will include:

  • How NRENs are providing value as national exchanges for unified communication services

  • Interdomain dialing: ENUM, the NRENum tree, and the forward looking solutions that lie there

  • An overview of best practice network engineering and A/V considerations

  • How universities, labs, and institutions can participate
