Air Traffic Bans Boost Video Conferencing

Monday Apr 19th 2010 by Staff

Cisco says it's seen a "huge spike" in demand.

Reuters: The volcanic eruption in Iceland that led to a ban on European air traffic may have been bad for airlines, but it's been good for Cisco and other video conferencing providers. "The only evidence is anecdotal, but you will not get a demo room in any of the Cisco facilities," said Fredrik Halvorsen, head of Cisco Systems' TelePresence Technology Group. "We have seen a huge spike in usage."

Even Zimmer of Norwegian provider Videoworks added, "The timing is very good. The market's growing, and the consequences of the ash cloud won't be forgotten very soon."
