Leading Video Managed Services Provider Delivers Secure, Cutting-Edge Solutions to all Branches of Government

Washington, DC (November 27, 2012) BOOTH #543- Yorktel, the global leader in video managed services, today announced that it will showcase its full suite of hosted media solutions at GovComm 2012, being held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC, November 28-29, 2012. In addition, Yorktel Chief Technology Officer, Bin Guan, will present an educational session, 'Build Infrastructure to Support Collaboration Participation', on Thursday November 29, at 9:00 AM EST.

Yorktel Media Services provides a full suite of turnkey professional media services for the creation, production and distribution of audio and video communications.

With the complex challenges that face the public sector, large bureaus, departments, and agencies are seeking ways to improve the productivity and effectiveness of their workforce and modernize IT infrastructure. Yorktel, which manages more than 13,000 endpoints in 84 countries, empowers national, regional and local government agencies take full advantage of the myriad benefits of secure video communications

The Company's federal customer footprint spans all agencies including DOE, Treasury, DOED, SSA, VA, USDA, DOJ, and HHS, as well as all segments of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines.

"Video is becoming pervasive as agencies of all sizes, from the military and federal level to local municipalities, embrace visual communication solutions for collaboration with both internal and external constituencies," said Bin Guan. "With budgets under intense scrutiny, managers are charged with the task of increasing productivity while cutting costs. Coupled with continued adoption of BYOD and telework, it is hard to ignore the need for video communications and telephony. It is our privilege to help government entities leverage all that these next-generation technologies have to offer, while addressing and resolving common inherent issues such as interoperability."

Yorktel has been able to implement solutions and services for its federal customers that have enabled them to communicate with geographically displaced personnel and experience video quality that's equivalent to in person collaboration. By using such solutions, federal agencies have experienced faster reaction time to emergency situations, increased departmental efficiency, achieved faster decision making, more efficient employee training, and increased content sharing.

"We understand that funding for technology initiatives can be limited; budget constraints are felt at the federal, state and local level. The benefit of visual communications solutions is that you are able to effectively reduce costs without sacrificing security or efficiency," added Guan.

Yorktel holds three GSA contracts, which allow the company to provide support and supply of all of the leading technology manufacturers as well as engineering, integration, and managed services. The Yorktel Contracts team is well versed in the process as well as policies and regulations for purchasing, bidding, procurement and other contractual obligations.

"InfoComm commends Yorktel for participating in this GovComm, an important event," said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International. "By educating government personnel about the value of communications technology, and how to overcome its challenges, Yorktel is aiding our nation's public servants in making the best real-time decisions possible."
