The spike in remote working amidst the COVID-19 pandemic has caused videoconferencing systems and service usage to skyrocket at a dizzying pace. At the heart of these systems is what is known as a multipoint control unit (MCU). Knowing where your MCU resides, how many simultaneous participants it supports within a conference, and what kind of extra features it delivers is key to designing a videoconferencing network that will ensure people enjoy the best quality service possible.

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting businesses around the world. Organizations are being forced to maneuver in a new world of security and privacy issues related to a remote workforce involving hardware and software needs, as well as employee access policies. While working from home may be a new and foreign concept to some companies, the cloud-based tools they use everyday have made it infinitely easier to continue operations and serving their customers with the same level of quality of service, support and communications that their brick and mortar operations have sought to provide.
So, as resellers and service providers of VoIP and uCast services, one of the most critical components in enabling a successful work-from-home experience for your customers (and their customers) is to keep the phone services operating as normally as possible. In this article, we suggest six steps to enabling an effective work-from-home (WFH) environment.

In today's virtual world, telecom and network services have come a long way, from being offered using locally installed, standalone monolithic servers to ethereal entities residing in the cloud. This evolution has touched every part of network service provisioning, and one of the most fascinating facets of this trend is that the network infrastructure itself can be virtualized.
Network function virtualization (NFV) is a network architecture philosophy that virtualizes the network infrastructure. In this article, we take a look at what NFV is, how it works, how it fits in with other virtualization technologies, and how it can be of benefit for enterprise networks.
The cloud is used to offer services directly to the end user, as well as to provide a platform on which vendors can develop their online applications (including VoIP) for their customers. In a previous article, we covered SaaS, PaaS and IaaS as the three most prominent cloud-based models that are used to offer services to clients. In this article, we take a more in-depth look at the various cloud deployment models that are available (including private, public and hybrid) and how they are useful for businesses of different sizes. The article concludes with the factors to consider when choosing which deployment model to use when offering VoIP and other cloud services to your customers.
