Materials Handling Company
Connecting Global Locations for Major
Material Handling Equipment Manufacturer
One of the world’s largest manufacturers of materials handling equipment, with Global HQ in the Midwest and divisional headquarters around the world, was looking for a way to streamline its operations and reduce travel costs. Diversified was hired to deliver an immersive video teleconferencing (VTC) solution to connect the corporation’s Global HQ with its multiple locations, enabling top management to run the daily operations via real-time video meetings between locations.
Diversified was tasked with designing, deploying and supporting a turnkey visual communications hub, with simultaneous VTC systems and secure video connections. The organization had no VTC system previously and little experience with the technology. At the client’s request, Diversified needed to work within a compressed time frame, completing the entire project in half the normal time.
Diversified provided the design, technical specifications, and direction for an enterprise-wide unified communications network which combined VoIP voice, data, VTC, streaming media and multiple types of messaging. Diversified also directed the construction of specially outfitted meeting rooms for each site, furnished with Cisco TX9000 Immersive TelePresence Room System capable of delivering three simultaneous 1080p60 video streams and one HD, full-motion 1080p30 content sharing stream for exceptional visibility. Each meeting room was identical, creating the
sense that executives were physically face-to-face no matter where they were located and intuitively designed to initiate and manage meetings with “one-button” simplicity.
The enterprise-based video and control solutions allowed the system to scale and interconnect with meeting rooms located across the globe. The back end of the VTC was designed to be redundant so the system would always work and be scalable to support future growth. Diversified collaborated with Cisco throughout the entire process to bring the project in on deadline and to the client’s satisfaction. The corporation has adopted the VTC solution enthusiastically and is finding a broad range of additional business uses for its capabilities.
