Media Network Services Adds US to Global Video Conferencing Network

May 26, 2011

Media Network Services (MNS) has added U.S. to its Global Video Conferencing Network, as a part of its expansion plans in North American market.

MNS' Global Video Conferencing Network is dedicated to video conferencing and combining the reach of Internet with a carrier-grade network. The network is provisioned by multiple international carriers in a meshed network topology offering full redundancy and has 50+ Points of Presence around the world with peering arrangements with most local ISPs.

"People turn to MNS when they experience that open Internet is not reliable for B2B and global HD quality video conferencing. They want to have the best of two worlds; the reach of Internet and the HD quality that they only experience on their internal closed MPLS networks. MNS combines those two worlds enabling organizations to call arbitrary destinations in HD quality,” said Hans Fredrik Johansen, CEO of MNS, in a recent press release.

According to the officials from MNS, the company has established its new Core Points of Presence (PoPs) in Atlanta, New York, and Los Angeles, enabling clients to reliably place HD video calls to arbitrary video endpoints connected to the Internet.

MNS provides a global network service optimized and dedicated to video conferencing traffic. The company recently selected Touchline Video as a distributor of MNS’ Global Video Conferencing Network Service. Touchline Video, distributor of LifeSize and Mirial video conferencing solutions, will with MNS enable their resellers across the U.K. to provide video conferencing solutions with network-out-of-the box supplied by MNS. Resellers get the immediate benefit of faster deployments as video endpoints only need to be connected to the Internet and clients get the benefit of a maximized HD video conference experience to arbitrary destinations worldwide (internally, externally and B2B).
