Toyo/ENPPI connects with Polycom HD video
Video conferencing solutions to connect sites in Egypt, Japan and India
Engineering joint venture Toyo/ENPPI has deployed Polycom HD video conferencing at two sites in Egypt to improve communications across its operations.
The company, a joint venture between Japan's Toyo and ENPPI of Egypt, requires communications between sites in Cairo and Alexandria, Tokyo and Mumbai, along with several suppliers around the world.
The Polycom HDX Video Conferencing units provided the Toyo/ENPPI project team the ability to communicate using half the bandwidth other brands needed for the same quality settings. This enabled the team to switch its office Internet lease from SDSL to ADSL, which saved the company over 80% of its annual Internet cost. The company has also gained increased productivity and better communications.
Mohammed Al-Desouky, IT Manager at Toyo/ENPPI JV, "Most of our services are cloud hosted. So we needed a solution that would optimise bandwidth use and enable our own VoIP systems to integrate with the new communications system and accept/send calls to mobile phones not just over the Internet but also on the GSM voice network.
"The new system has met all our goals, from establishing reliable and efficient video/audio conferencing communications to minimising our Internet costs," added Al-Desouky. "The entire system is managed by one person on site at each office."
