  • One of the areas the Boston lab focuses on is voice over IP (VoIP) for the enterprise.

    Here Clement Lizhtenauer of France Telecom-owned Equant demonstrates how, with the company's Business Everywhere product, one can place a VoIP call while simultaneously sending a large file and videoconferencing to a colleague - and the quality of the voice transmission does not degrade significantly.

  • During the teleconference, we speak with Equant employees in Chile, France and London. The man shown in the large, centre section of the screen is calling from a softphone on his laptop, and is connected to the VPN from a Wi-Fi network in a Paris airport. The sound quality and frame rate were pretty impressive.

  • This screenshot shows how the Business Everywhere software prioritises data traffic based on what's needed to ensure high-quality communications. The red line is voice data, the blue line a file and the green line is video.
