Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) April 21, 2010 -- BCS Global Networks Limited (www.bcsglobal.com), a leading worldwide provider of managed videoconferencing, telepresence and visual collaboration services and Iformata Communications LLC (www.iformata.com), the leading innovator in telepresence management systems, today announced a strategic partnership to collaborate on the PSVN initiative to deliver B2B Video Communications to their customers.

This announcement by BCS Global and Iformata is a significant step forward, following the recent launch of the PSVN (Public Switched Video Network) initiative, a framework aimed at facilitating videoconferencing service providers and carriers to seamlessly inter-connect their B2B Video Exchanges to a Public Global B2B Video Network.

The new partnership will enable both the managed service providers to leverage their combined infrastructure and capabilities to develop a standard set of best practices, value added applications, and processes - all aimed at providing customers with the capability to meet face-to-face over video with enterprise quality, performance and reliability.

With a growing demand from their customers for inter-company B2B Video Communications, BCS Global and Iformata are now well-poised to deliver seamless inter-connectivity and deliver a broader set of B2B service capabilities on a global basis, by providing inter-operability through BCS Global's "Global Video Exchange" and Iformata's "Telepresence Exchange".

Following this partnership, BCS Global and Iformata are confident that more like-minded service providers in the marketplace who share the vision of establishing a Public Global B2B Video Network will join the PSVN initiative, which would enable the service providers to deliver inter-company B2B Video Communication capabilities and other value-added services to their customers, that would eventually increase their video adoption and maximize ROI.

Executive quotes:

"This partnership provides an opportunity for BCS Global and Iformata to build a 'true, global' B2B Video Network that is capable of providing scalable and flexible inter-company video communications capability to its customers.
