Everyday situation in many companies: A video conference will be set. At first everything goes well, the image quality will always further, the sound comes suddenly transported and at the end of the program depends entirely on. Especially today, when the new business strategy ought to be adopted!
Our modern world of work has its pitfalls. Technology is everywhere, but would fail at the crucial moment. But particularly when it comes to important meetings, a fail-safe technology is indispensable. Because it's clear: conferencing technologies are an indispensable part of modern working life.
Telephone and video conferences are increasingly being used in companies to increase productivity and efficiency. Whether through tighter schedules or fewer trips - with virtual meetings to huge cost and time can be saved. Additional advantage: employees thus have the opportunity to participate in important meetings in the home office.
Not least, virtual meetings are good for the environment. Low power consumption and saved travel expenses, there are hardly any CO2 emissions. This is also good for the image, for a reduced CO2 footprint gives businesses in our environmentally conscious society a positive reputation.
Such is also the benefit of conference tools, but so varied and complex, the solution offers. Often tariff and licensing structures for users are hard to see through. Therefore, it is helpful to take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of telephone and video conferencing, before deciding for a variant.

Fast, efficient and fail-safe: Conference calls
Conference calls are particularly well suited to coordinate certain issues quickly or open-ended questions such as "Are there any other ideas?", "What do you think?" Or "Can there help?" To clarify. Tasks that have been discussed, for example, over the phone spider in the conference room and clearly defined, are done after talking mostly immediately. This is confirmed by a study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering from 2012.
It may help if the participants in advance to agree on a moderator and an agenda to structured teleconferences and efficiently perform.
Another plus: Audio conferencing is much easier to prepare, organize and operate as video conferencing and social collaboration tools. Additional hardware or installing such programs or plug-ins are no longer necessary today. In addition, conference calls are fail-safe by the proven fixed network technology. Unlike mobile communication landline finally can not be compromised by a lack of bandwidth.

what is teleconferencing
Cross-border cooperation: videoconferencing
About 80 percent of human communication takes place through gestures and facial expressions. That employees feel no wonder video conferencing as a natural and therefore more communicative. Therefore, for example, group work falls easily over long distances when the other team is by video. Also has found the study by the Fraunhofer Institute. In addition, video conferencing for example, offer the possibility, despite strikes or natural phenomena that prevent flights, still hold presentations and group discussions.
However, a study by the consulting firm Frost & Sullivan, that less than half of the surveyed 315 international companies regularly use video conferencing. One reason for this is the high data bandwidth, which claims the transmission of live images over the Internet. Tests have shown that some video conferencing vendors both in the upstream and in the download take as much bandwidth claim that the Internet connections of many German businesses or home offices are overloaded quickly. Only 18 percent of users in Germany in late 2013 had a connection with more than ten Mbit per second is available, a study by Akamai Technologies. By comparison, in the UK around 30 per cent of users surf even 45 percent with high-speed, in the Netherlands. The basic problem are the house connections and exchanges. These are often developed not needed. So are the wires that lead from glass fiber-road access to homes and offices, often still copper cable with low throughput.
