Global Crossing Pushes Conferencing, Connects to 4K Suites

September 1st, 2010 by · 2 Comments

International network operator glbc had a virtual trade show going on today, the subject of which was collaboration and conferencing - sort of a virtual conference about virtual conferencing.  To go along with it, the company this morning announced connectivity to some 4,000 executive video suites across the world, which include more than 500 hi-def public video conference rooms and 400 court reporting facilities.   That's a rather nice footprint to start off with.

Those rooms come via an expanded agreement with Affinity VideoNet, which provides such rooms worldwide, and fits nicely with their relationship with telepresence provider Teliris announced in late July.  Global Crossing's pursuit of the nascent telepresence market reflects their emphasis on large multinational clients.  I remain curious to see just when the revenues from telepresence across the sector will reflect the amount of attention it is getting.

    Powell, thanks for cleaning up the cesspool that was becoming your board. Had it continued, you would have been RATED XXX.

    I recall (3) having an important US customer in this space. Without going back and digging, hopefully, it isn’t one that got churned into GLBC’s hands like others have X different biz segments including CDN.

    The NATIVES across various “securities” be they equity or bonds, are becoming very restless and mean spirited in (3). Whether its differences of opinion in warring fashion between two competing groups of owners, or something even more nefarious remains to be seen.

    One can only hope, maybe even pray that your prior predictions of an MNA is the ultimate solution for (3) owners. If they acclimate and perform synergisms correctly, purchasing revenues remains an important TOOL for Crowe and his minions to DRIVE that TOP LINE! imo

      Alas, the price of offering people as much commenting freedom as I do here is that occasionally someone will abuse the privilege. I do moderate when necessary, but it may not be quick enough to protect everyone’s eyes from the rantings of such people.
