Digital Collaboration Bridge

Overview

XOP Network’s Digital Collaboration Bridge (DCB) addresses the needs of demanding conferencing users. This appliance integrates with an organization’s existing telephone and data network infrastructure bringing advanced audio and web conferencing capabilities in-house.

With DCB, a Moderator can easily record the audio and web conferencing sessions and automatically merge them into a flash based webinar. This webinar can then be downloaded and played back on any PC that supports flash.

DCB’s web-based user interface has been designed with ease of use and simplicity in mind, eliminating the need to invest in training of the end users. It complies with industry standard browsers and requires no downloads, plug-ins or additional software installation. The conference scheduler is tightly integrated with Microsoft Outlook.

The XOP Networks Digital Collaboration Bridge (DCB) is the right choice when deciding to deploy your own advanced conferencing solution. With your own in-house system you are not only allowing employees to be more productive in their interactions with customers,partners and fellow employees,you are also controlling increasing monthly costs associated with outsourced conferencing services.

XOP Networks Universal Service Node (USN) and other products are deployed in Carrier and Enterprise networks. In such networks our products interface with a number of third party PBXs, IP PBXs, Central Office Switches, Soft Switches, Media Gateways and back office network elements.

This White Paper from XOP Networks compares the prevalent outsourcing approach for meeting a company's audio and web conferencing needs with an in-house approach. The ROI model clearly shows that an organization that routinely uses audio and web conferencing services as part of its business processes can save substantial sum of money by switching to an in house collaboration server. In addition to the monthly savings the company will benefit from improved employee productivity and reduced travel costs.
