NEW YORK, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  Dimension Data, the $5.8 billion global ICT solutions and services provider, today announced that its cloud computing and converged communications experts will provide thought leadership on emerging trends in enterprise cloud computing and video communications at Interop Las Vegas, March 31April 4, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Leveraging the company's deep expertise in unified communications, an all-Dimension Data educational panel, "Emerging Video Technologies," will explore the leading edge of video communications in the enterprise. Additionally, cloud computing experts will showcase the recently launched Cloud Private Network Connection (CPNC) service, which provides clients with a secure, high-performance method of accessing Dimension Data's cloud services without traversing the public Internet.

In the one-hour interactive session, Dimension Data converged communications experts—David Danto, Lawrence Imeish, Anthony Vitnell and Christopher Wulf—will focus on scalable video coding (SVC), new developments in the rollout of the next-gen codecs and the new WebRTC standard; as well as the ongoing debate over hardware vs. software multipoint control units (MCUs). The session will also include valuable information about new video communications technologies being deployed today, what's coming in the next 12 months and how these technologies can improve the business user's video collaboration experience.

"For the typical large enterprise, a company-wide unified communications and collaboration investment can be difficult to justify, but IT directors are being called on more frequently to formulate a strategy and an investment plan that will take their organizations well into the future," said Danto. "We'll explore how to evaluate video options based on network resources and business requirements, so our audience can make better informed decisions that will boost productivity and cost-efficiency by improving collaboration tools."

Dimension Data is the world's largest video communications integrator by revenue and endpoint deployments, managing more than 20,000 calls per month. With its 500 top-tier video certifications from partners including Cisco, Microsoft and Polycom, Dimension Data helps clients plan, build, support and manage business communications infrastructures, including managed video services on premise, in the private cloud or through video-as-a-service in the private cloud.

Additionally, Dimension Data will showcase its recently announced CPNC capability – an optional, add-on service that offers flexible connectivity to its enterprise-class cloud via a direct connection (physical port) or private connect (virtual port). CNPC gives service providers, telecom carriers and colocation providers a secure method of enabling access to Dimension Data's cloud services without the need for a public Internet connection (Public, Hosted Private and Managed Hosting services).
