Video Conferencing Bandwidth Management

Video Conferencing Bandwidth Management

Hello USB Pros! This issue is in regards to the all mighty bandwidth giant. So many networks are set up to work properly, the end users have the proper software and they are even following the proper procedure... yet the experience is poor. Often times this issue has to do with the bandwidth your client PC has access to rather than the actual hardware. But how can a IT manager check the available bandwidth at any given computer when the pipelines requested are coming from different servers around the world? USB Pros and Conference Room Systems have teamed up to provide a new software that will test your the bandwidth available on a given computer against our Godaddy Servers in Phoenix, AZ. Depending on where you are on the world there is a good chance this will be a great a comparison to what you can expect from a video conferencing server like GoToMeeting or WebEX.
