Radisys Integrated Conferencing Solution Improves Economics and Flexibility in Next-gen Architecture
Asia Pacific is the fastest growing geography for conferencing services, according to Wainhouse
Research. Minutes of use in the region are forecasted to increase at a 19 percent compound annual growth
rate (CAGR) from 2011 to 2016. This trend is due, in large part, to an upsurge in Chinese conferencing business,
particularly between Chinese-based businesses conducting international conference calls.
An emerging conferencing service provider (CSP) based in China was an early innovator in supplying conferencing
services to the growing Asia Pacific opportunity. They initially launched their business using legacy time-division
multiplexing (TDM) audio bridge infrastructure. But as the CSP’s business grew, the capital and ongoing
operational costs of the TDM equipment limited their ability to compete with new entrants and competitors
in the Asia-Pacific conferencing market. In addition, the solution lacked the ability to leverage economical
VoIP technologies and network interconnection, while limiting the flexibility to integrate with other IP-based
communication and back office systems. Clearly, a more cost-effective solution was needed to sustain rapid
business growth in the face of the inevitable downward price pressures stemming from increased competition.
