Tandberg Debuts Provisioning Platform

Tandberg introduced a provisioning solution that allows enterprises to deploy Tandberg E20 personal videoconferencing phones and Tandberg Movi PC videoconferencing to thousands of employees. The solution uses new features in Tandberg's Management Suite to help eliminate the time involved in setting up individual devices across large or geographically dispersed organizations.

Tandberg this week introduced a provisioning solution that allows enterprises to deploy Tandberg E20 personal videoconferencing phones and Tandberg Movi PC videoconferencing to thousands of employees. The solution uses new features in Tandberg's Management Suite (TMS) to help eliminate the time involved in setting up individual devices across large or geographically dispersed organizations, according to the company.

Analysts say organizations are wary of deploying and supporting too many end-user devices. Being able to provision videoconferencing from a central location can help reduce the cost of both the initial setup and of ongoing moves, adds, and changes.

Tandberg's provisioning solution is made possible through a software upgrade to the TMS and can be deployed through the Tandberg Video Communication Server. According to Tandberg, an administrator configures policies for video users and imports new user addresses from Active Directory. Users then receive an automated email that includes username and password. When users plug in their video system and sign in, they are then ready to make a video call.

Software upgrades for the Tandberg TMS, VCS and E20 will be available before year end, the company says.
