FVC Adds IPeak Networks' IPQ to Portfolio

Published October 22nd, 2009 - 02:31 GMT

 FVC, a leading value added distributor in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), has announced the signing of a distribution agreement with IPeak Networks for the MENA region. FVC will be selling and supporting IPeak Networks' IPQ Network Appliance and IPQ Concentrator throughout the MENA region.

K.S. Parag, managing director at FVC, said, "As the demand for IP based communication grows in the region, we see a need for IPeak Networks' automatic packet loss recovery solutions that will benefit real time applications like video conferencing and VoIP. This technology will help our video conferencing and VoIP customers run their calls much better on public IP networks and will be a useful addition to our Rich Media portfolio."

IPeak Networks' unique patent-pending zero-latency protection against packet loss allows its IPQ products to greatly improve the quality of video conferences conducted over the public Internet. Packet loss is endemic to the Internet and as little as 1 percent packet loss can make a video conference unusable. IPQ reduces packet loss by 95 percent and more to enable smooth and synchronized video conference calls using the public Internet. IPQ products for video conferencing provide low-cost plug-and-call protection against packet loss: IPQ's transparent operation mode means there is no need for network engineering, no changes to installed video conference systems required, and an immediately positive impact on the video conferencing system user experience.

Brett McAteer, director of marketing, IPeak Networks, said, "Right from the start, FVC demonstrated a complete understanding of the way IPQ is changing the game for video conferencing over-the-top of the public Internet. We were looking for the right partner to help build the market for our ground-breaking technology and there is no doubt that the partnership between FVC and IPeak Networks represents a regional force for change, bringing the quality and the performance required for real-time network applications to the public Internet."
