“VCI-Group continues to seek solutions our users need”, said J D Vaughn, host for this VCIG Live! event. “We know that we must help users find solutions for interoperability issues if we are to continue to see increased deployment and adoption. As the number of video end points grows from millions to billions, interoperability becomes an even more important issue.”
The primary responsibility of the VCI-Group is to provide members inside information, education and valuable insight on tough topics and the organization believes the end user experience is as important as the technology, implementation and end user training.
This session will be sponsored and hosted by Cisco WebEx. To register visit: http://www.vci-group.org/events/vciglive.aspx. Attendance for VCI-Group members is free and a new user’s membership is free for the first year.
