SightLink Cloud-Based and On-Premise Services

Every organisation needs to bring decision-making groups together quickly, easily and in a cost-effective manner. Internet Videocommunications offers a whole host of ways to help you communicate more closely and dynamically by video, both internally and externally and regardless of what system or device you wish to use. 

For a growing number of organisations, especially those with multiple locations, there can be even greater benefits when deploying a cloud based conference solution on your own premises. Not only does this bring tremendous cost savings by utilising your own network, but it also allows you to converge your video, voice and other communication media under the one platform for streamlined management and control. 

 Internet Videocommunications operates an industry leading global bridging bureau service, called SightLink. Established in the early 1990's, SightLink continues to set the standard for the most reliable, high quality, fully-managed conferencing service in the industry. 

SightLink allows you to Cooperate and collaborate with ease

How people cooperate and collaborate has changed dramatically in recent times. The mass deployment of smart phones and tablets has changed how people share information, how they collaborate and how they want to communicate.

Today, for many organisations, the simplest and easiest way to meet by video is via a Virtual Meeting Room (VMR). With SightLink you can access a VMR from any type of device, whether a video conferencing system, a web browser, through Microsoft’s Lync, Skype or Skype for Business clients, a smartphone or a tablet, a regular phone, and in many other ways. You can share information, presentations and collaborate. Best of all, it is always available and always accessible for ad-hoc or scheduled meetings. And, because it is yours, it is easy to invite people into it.

Simply:

Use a simple link to invite colleagues to your VMR

Whatever the the device, SightLink will bring you all together 

You are now all face-to-face with fantastic quality and speed

With its easy to use UI, take full control and set up a virtual meeting whenever you want

Whether meeting room endpoint, laptop or mobile phone; SightLink connects everything with no fuss

With more data centres than any other service, you can connect with the best quality and speed

The most reliable, high quality, fully-managed cloud conferencing service in the industry

Each VMR supports up to 30 participants as standard and the service easily scales to provide thousands of VMRs to each organisation, with the objective of enabling every individual with their own VMR.

SightLink consists of 15 global points of presence with redundant data centres in Europe, North America, Middle East, Asia and Oceania, all serviced by a Quality of Service-enabled MPLS backbone.As a result, our clients have access to the most resilient architecture. So when you connect to SightLink you will be doing so using the shortest IP path to the nearest point of presence, which in turn means eliminating packet loss, latency and jitter that is often observed by traversing large distances across the public internet.
