Video Conferencing Finally Becomes Affordable for SMEs


February 13, 2013

Video conferencing has been seen as a way to minimize travel expenses and time, and make impromptu national and international meetings a reality. For mega organizations, the savings are substantial, for medium-sized organizations, the savings and productivity boost is even more. For small businesses, the running costs of a video conferencing solution fall completely out of the affordability ballpark, until now that is.


XDSL, a local Internet solution provider has made video conferencing a reality with its secure, reliable and fast managed connectivity solution in the form of an MPLS VPN connection. An XDSL MPLS VPN can carry and route several network traffic types across public networks securely and has guaranteed throughput and reliability.

 For small and medium-sized businesses, this solution comes at a fraction of the cost of other similar offerings and includes more value. For example, a 1024kbps connection would normally cost about $900 while a 1986kbps connection would go for about $1,500. With XDSL, 1024kbps would only cost about $260 while 1986kbps would be about $500.

How though can you be sure that you will get the same quality of service that a dedicated line offers? MPLS creates a VPN connection that extends a private network across public networks such as the Internet. An MPLS VPN provides the flexibility needed to carry and route network traffic while using Quality of Service (QoS). This enables the prioritization of video conferencing over other traffic data resulting in reduced latency and packet losses. For backup and redundancy, XDLS MPLS VPN makes use of Diginet, which is included as part of the cost.

With such a cost effective, highly reliable and fast video and data transmission solution, SMEs can now truly leverage the power of video conferencing to improve business interactions and operations. Resellers of managed services now have a new offering that improves their competitive advantage while introducing a new revenue stream. Most important of all, SMEs can now have access to video conferencing which has long been available only to large corporations and organizations.
