Cisco Offers Streaming Intranet Video

ViaCast Networks announced Wednesday they will work with Loral CyberStar to jointly deliver video over Internet Protocol (IP) communications to all Cisco Systems' sales and marketing offices.

The communications network will allow sales and marketing information to be shared between Cisco's corporate offices more efficiently, the companies said. It will also be used as a training resource in remote offices, allowing Cisco officials to communicate with new employees and selling partners in several locations simultaneously through streaming video and data information.

Dave Patten, Loral CyberStar's senior vice president for marketing, said the arrangement with Viacast is a "win-win for our two companies. Viacast makes a great technology partner because of their superior broadband IP services and management capabilities; and we are pleased to have this important opportunity to provide worldwide broadband service coverage, installation, and maintenance support to a company such as Cisco."
