The key word is “Communication” since the beginning of time when man first started drawing images on cave walls our strongest drive has been to communicate with others. We have come a long way since then.
The latest phase in communication is video calling. Video calling itself is not new the idea has been around for a long time, but so far it has not become main stream. Due to the growth of IP based communication and the increased bandwidth available the underlying foundation for video calling in now in place.
One of the main issues is the “island” effect. Each service provider does very well in providing video services to customers who use the same service “on their island”, but is not able to complete a video call with a subscriber on a different service network. For video calling to succeed the service needs to become totally ubiquitous. A subscriber should be able to easily place a video call to any other subscriber without any knowledge of the recipients service provider.
Xconnect together with CBOGOT CONSULTING provide the technology needed to achieve this goal. Xconnect is introducing new products and services that will bridge the gaps between service provider islands allowing provider independent video calling to occur. This in turn will allow video calls to become the mainstream communication mechanism of the future
