Premiere Global Services, Inc. Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
PGi, and TalkPoint retained their reseller agreement with Hive Streaming (enterprise video distribution solutions), to deliver on a high-quality, analytics-supported webcast streaming experience for customers.
PGi's iMeetLive and TalkPoint customers needed better ways to deliver live video to large internal audiences without crushing networks and causing bandwidth issues.
By bundling and integrating Hive Streaming with iMeetLive and TalkPoint solutions, PGi's webcast customers can now easily deploy a higher quality webcast streaming experience, coupled with real-time performance analysis solutions, delivered via HTML5, without crippling a company's network during large video events.
In February 2017 PGi, have conducted their first Voice over LTE (VoLTE) High Definition (HD) audio conference call.
The VoLTE conference call was powered by PGi's mobile collaboration exchange which connects an operator's IMS based VoLTE service to PGi's cloud-enabled IP conferencing infrastructure and enables mobile operators to host crystal-clear HD conference calls.
BICS' IPX VoLTE Hub has been instrumental in bridging the HD VoLTE calls originating from the mobile operator's network to PGi's mobile collaboration exchange.
With more than one in three operators investing in LTE-advanced system deployments and one in three conference call attendees using a mobile phone, the mobile collaboration exchange allows mobile operators to seamlessly deliver low-bandwidth, high-quality audio conference calls over an LTE network.
BICS' IPX VoLTE Hub is enabling international VoLTE calls providing enhanced quality of experience to end-users and assisting mobile operators to realize the All IP migration.
IPX VoLTE Hub is empowered with the best in class protocol normalisation and media transcoding capabilities, which are vital in maintaining the E2E HD sound quality of VoLTE voice calls.
