DUBLIN, June 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/d368f3/video) has announced the addition of the "Video Conferencing Endpoints and Infrastructure Market in India CY 2014" report to their offering.
A rise in employee mobility, increased interaction and content sharing within the enterprise landscape, more collaboration services from outside the service provider ecosystem, and the consumerization of IT are making customers more demanding about services and how they are consumed. Market consolidation has also resulted in a better distribution structure and improved technical competency. Several vendors have formed strategic partnerships to offer interoperable solutions, which is resulting in the higher adoption of video conferencing solutions.
An MCU, also known as a conferencing bridge, allows or more terminals to connect and participate in a multi-point conference. It includes a multi-point controller and a multi-point processor. The former collects information about the capabilities of the individual terminals and sets up the conference. The latter manages the audio, video, and data streams between the individual terminals. A bridge can be either a stand-alone bridge or a bridge built into the endpoint.
Gateways provide interoperability between terminals residing on disparate networks, primarily Internet Protocol (IP) and Integrated Service Digital Network (ISDN) for VC applications. Gateways are essential for multi-protocol and multi-network environments. They aid in protocol translation, information transfer, and the conversion of media formats.
Gatekeepers are an integral part of an IP network. They register each of the VC terminals and provide bandwidth control and optimization in addition to address translation, zone management, and call management. Sometimes, a gatekeeper can be part of an MCU or a gateway.
Management Tools include software that offers network management and monitoring, end-point or device management, scheduling, directory services, and calendaring tools.
An increasing number of VC vendors are forming strategic partnerships and inter- federations, which is positively impacting the VC endpoints and infrastructure market.
Cloud-based VC solutions are gaining traction, and most of the demand is arising from the mid-sized segment.
