Converged Communications Services – managed video communications

Support improved collaboration with reduced need for business travel

Managing business operations across geographies increases the need for business travel. You need a technology that can help you improve collaboration and productivity while reducing travel expenses, carbon footprint and large up-front investments. IBM can design, implement, operate and maintain an integrated video communications solution to help you improve collaboration, efficiency, productivity and business agility with reduced need for business travel.


Real-time video communication can enable more effective communication and collaboration to help businesses bridge the barriers of geography, culture and location. However, video solutions can be complex to implement and maintain, as they often require specialized skills to coordinate several disciplines in video technology—networking, telecommunications and solution integration—that may not be available in house. In addition, many managed service providers may require a large up-front capital investment, and some cannot offer the features or geographic coverage you require.

IBM Converged Communications Services – managed video communications can provide a high-definition, point-to-point or multipoint video communications solution designed to deliver a near-real-time, life-like environment. Our solution is based on Polycom RealPresence technology and can be integrated with enterprise calendaring to enable simplified scheduling through a user-friendly portal or concierge service. Leveraging our partnership with Polycom and Tata Communications, we can provide an integrated solution that includes strategy and assessment architecture and design, implementation and integration services, managed operations, proactive room monitoring, usage reporting and maintenance.
