FAQs

What is a Managed VC Service?

Think about it, how many managers can walk into a Board Room/Conference Room and connect into an online meeting or conference without calling IT or Admin support?

Just like Managed Services involve outsourcing the management and maintenance of various aspects of your IT infrastructure to a specialized service provider, in Managed VC services, a company outsources the management of its Audio/Video infrastructure to a Vendor competent to carry out these specialised functions.

This comprehensive approach allows a company to entrust the responsibilities to a dedicated team of experts, while the business can focus on its core operations and delegate the tasks for optimal performance and reliability.

What is a Cloud VC Service?

Unlike in the past, when meetings and conferences took place, it required the collaboration of the telecom, admin, and premises teams to make it possible. Installation could take a long time and software was expensive. These meetings were locally hosted on an organisation’s servers and hardware and required companies to either ensure that they had the team in place or hire this service.

Think of it like this. Cloud VC is like a SaaS platform where you need to connect to a service on the cloud that allows you to use your devices like laptops/phones/tablets to connect to another meeting attendee who is on the same services. All meeting guests need to be logged into the same platform via cloud. E.g. Teams Meeting, Zoom or Google Meet etc. Each Meeting software comes with it’s own set of features that make it preferrable to an group to opt for a specific Cloud meeting solution.

How do I choose between a Managed VC or a Cloud VC?

The need for each business is different and depends on a thorough inspection and assessment of your needs. E.g

  • How often do you conduct critical business meetings?
  • What is the nature of these events and impact in case of failure?
  • Can such failure lead to non-compliances or imposition of penalty etc?

Based on your responses an expert will be able to make recommendations. In any case the final decision can be reached only by consulting industry experts who offer authentic advice and help you make an informed decision, with the ability to think through all possibilities and alternative solutions. Some of these solutions can be cost-effective and pocket-friendly and may save you a great deal or even protect you from potentially unviable decisions and traps.

What are the different types of Managed video services?

1. On-premises model – In this model, the infrastructure sits on the company’s network, and the managed video services provider controls it remotely. Enterprises keep the video infrastructure behind their own firewall and on their network.

2. Cloud model – The managed services provider owns the infrastructure, manages it, and houses it in their own cloud. This model’s users benefit from cloud security, scalability, reliability, and high uptime.

3. Hybrid model – Combining the on-premises model and the cloud model, a hybrid approach lets the company keep their own infrastructure but also employ some of the service provider’s software for extra capacity or as a failover.
