School districts get set to improve distance education programs through IntelliNet from IVCi.

IVCi, LLC (http://www.ivci.com), a leading integrator of enterprise collaboration solutions, including video conferencing, audio/visual systems, streaming, Web conferencing and managed conference services, announced today that a distance learning application, using IVCi’s flagship video conferencing network, IntelliNet, has been approved for E-Rate funding for a New York city-based school system.

E-Rate provides funding to schools and libraries for telecommunication services, and school districts looking to connect their schools with video conferencing can now select the powerful IntelliNet IP network as part of this process.

“Distance learning through video conferences is becoming more important for educational institutions, on a global level,” said Robert Swing, president of IVCi, LLC. “That's why we created the IntelliNet IP video conferencing service — a fully managed, high performance, reliable and secure service that allows schools to focus on their learning session, and not the technology.”

Conducting video conferences for distance learning through IntelliNet has proven to be a much more effective and reliable method when compared to ISDN. IntelliNet offers a stable and secure environment from which to conduct video conferences since there is no impact to existing data networks upon installation. With IntelliNet, there is no need to understand the technology; it’s an easy-to-use, turnkey solution. Video conferencing becomes a powerful educational tool and concerns over day-to-day support and out-of-control per-minute costs are eliminated. IntelliNet also offers fixed-fee, unlimited usage plans that are more cost effective than ISDN-based conferencing environments. IntelliNet’s management features include:

  •     Easy-to-use and automated call scheduling tool

  •     24/7, proactive monitoring of end-points
  •     Fully automatic point-to-point or multipoint call launching
  •     Secure, fully redundant IP network
  •     Available in 40+ countries
