Video conferencing fundamentals
At Pexip, we believe there are five fundamental pillars that all need to exist in order to achieve video conferencing at scale.
A video conferencing solution for everyone on your team must be based on a flexible software platform. You deploy video conferencing like you deploy other enterprise software. Pexip Infinity is as a modern virtualized software platform. You run it in your data center just like you would any other software. Or, deploy it in a cloud solution, private or public. Even combine it with your existing hardware infrastructure.
Serious enterprise level infrastructure products are virtualized. 100% of all Fortune 100 companies run VMware, and even 96% of all Fortune 1000 companies use the same. All these companies are ready to deploy and benefit from Pexip Infinity right away. Infinity uses the same management tools, and the same server hardware as all their other software, integrating perfectly in their IT strategy.
Pexip Infinity is a distributed software platform. You deploy conferencing capacity where you need it. Traffic is where the need is. There is no need to route media or signaling through a central point. Infinity connects users to the nearest Conferencing Node, and connects nodes with virtual backplanes. The user sees a seamless conference. The gain is dramatically reduced bandwidth usage.
Devices, systems and video clients simply need to work together. In Unified Communications there are great challenges with interoperability between devices and systems. Pexip Infinity solves all that. A software engine transcodes every conceivable video, audio and presentation sharing codec, and lets the user worry about who to call and about what - not how.
With traditional video conferencing systems and infrastructure, you have to buy capacity for the worst case scenario, or worse, not be able to host the largest meetings. With Pexip Infinity, you only pay for what you need and what you use. You deal with licensing the way you handle licenses for other enterprise software. Licenses are simply managed the way you are used to.
