MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the visual collaboration market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes BCS Global with the 2012 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Service Provider of the Year.
The global visual communications market was worth £142 million in 2011 and is expected to reach £619 million by 2017. BCS Global, with its managed video conferencing, telepresence and visual collaboration portfolio, is one of the fastest growing service providers worldwide. The company focuses on seamless connection between endpoints, including home office and owns a fully deployed global B2B video exchange with interconnects to regional and global carriers.
BCS Global differentiates itself by offering a suite of innovative visual collaboration services that help businesses in different industry verticals to implement and manage a high-definition, point-to-point or multipoint solution that is available anywhere, anytime, over any network, and on any video device. BCS Global offers a scalable application that is able to cross ISDN, IP, 3G mobile and standard broadband video connectivity. The company was the first to launch support for IPv6 and interworking between v6 and v4 video endpoints as well as the first to launch cloud-based mobile enterprise video services based on scalable video coding (SVC).
"BCS Global has a very strong visual collaboration services portfolio. Its focus on heterogeneous endpoint connectivity and eliminating the technology complexity addresses a key pain point for customers. Focusing primarily on managed video services makes it easier for BCS Global to offer its white label services to other providers, without competing with them on other aspects of their service offering," said Frost & Sullivan Research Director Adrian Drozd. "The result was a robust 128 percent revenue growth in 2011."
"BCS Global also delivered significant achievements in 2011 in terms of major service enhancements, partnerships and customer wins," added Drozd.
The company helped found the Open Visual Communications Consortium (OVCC), launched next generation cloud-based managed desktop video services, built a partnership with XConnect to interconnect with its global video exchanges, was named Polycom Telepresence VNOC Provider and pitched its cloud-based services to enable business continuity for business travelers stranded in Europe due to the ash cloud.
In recognition of these achievements, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present the 2012 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Service Provider of the Year in the visual communications market to BCS Global. Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated exemplary performance, and had the widest, most coherent portfolio of services over the past 12 months, in Europe. The award recognizes the recipient's portfolio strength, strategic coherence, market performance and key achievements.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
