Huawei has been in videocommuncation development since 1993, and has sought throughout this time to address the customer base first and foremost. The firm presently holds 250 video related patents. There are four TP products, supported by two TP servers, in Huawei’s portfolio. TP3106 was demonstrated at ITU Telecom World 2011 – a 1080p 50/60 full HD offering, with triple-rack spatial sound, an Android-based touch control panel, standards-based interoperability, and low-bandwidth consumption (at 2m for 1080p, and 1m for 720p). Moreover, security is a prime consideration, with adherence to H.235, and encrypted media streaming and signalling flows. With testing in partnership with Orange Business Services, for all regions including the Middle East and North Africa, the benefits will include improved meeting efficiency and improved revenue streams.
