Banco Columbia S.A. Invests in SURF Video Conferencing Solution

Banco Columbia integrates SURF video conferencing technology to improve communications between its 60 branches spread throughout Argentina. Banco Columbia sees highly secured inter-bank communications playing a key role in improving customer service and reducing overhead business expenses.

SURF Communication Solutions, a developer of high capacity, real-time multimedia processing and enabling technologies, has announced an agreement for supplying its ORION-HMP video conferencing solution to Banco Columbia S.A., a commercial bank headquartered in Buenos Aires with over 60 branches spread throughout Argentina.

As part of the agreement, Banco Columbia will outfit all of their bank branches with SURF’s WebRTC compatible video conferencing solution. The plug-and-play ORION-HMP is the first video conferencing solution that supports both legacy and next-gen deployments, enabling financial organizations and enterprise to quickly outfit secure and high-quality video conferencing for all codecs and protocols without having to overhaul their existing IT infrastructure.

SURF’s ORION-HMP is a software-based solution that leverages the processing power of a COTS Intel server GPU to process up to 90% more data per server, enabling it to provide users with 1080p/4k video resolution with latency of under 60 FPS. Of significance to Banco Columbia and other monetary institutions, ORION-HMP operates on top of the internal server, enabling all the benefits of web-browser access without any risk of data leakage.

Represented by Provetel, a leading IT integrator and distributor in Argentina, and Provetel’s integrator VOXSUR, SURF made the short list of potential providers by demonstrating its ability to facilitate high-quality calls between legacy SIP, H.323 infrastructure and next-gen WebRTC. Furthermore, SURF’s software-based architecture enables ORION-HMP to be priced significantly lower than traditional room-based systems.

Diego Salomon, VP telecommunications for Banco Columbia commented, “The bank was seeking an easy to integrate video conferencing platform that would enable multi-user access at each bank location over WebRTC protocol. Our initial criteria in the tender were secure communications with a high quality call experience, content sharing and whiteboard. However, we chose SURF, Provetel and VOXSUR after being impressed with their professionalism, and having found the product to have exceptionally low latency, the most competitive pricing and the greatest adaptation to Internet based calling.”

Ariel Linker, SURF’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing commented: “SURF supports the financial industry with ultra-secured communications over the WebRTC model. The installation at Banco Columbia represents another successful installment within the financial sector, and cements SURF’s place as the ideal solution for banks and investment houses seeking secure communications while not compromising on flexibility and quality.

Panamax to Expand Product Offering with SURF’s 3-Level HMP Suite

Panamax leverages SURF Communications’ technology to expand the capabilities of its popular telecom platforms. Panamax sees faster time to market and Level 5 API switches as key SURF advantages in the rapidly changing telecom market.

 SURF Communication Solutions, a developer of high capacity, real-time multimedia processing and enabling technologies, has announced an agreement for supplying its three-level HMP product suite to Panamax®, a New York and India based developer of advanced telecom and mobile financial technologies.

As part of the agreement, Panamax will integrate the SURF-HMP media transcoding engine within their iMax® Class-4 integrated carrier switch, explore Motion-HMP media and signaling APIs for its Class-5 UC&C suite Bridge2Call®, and initiate a trial of the ORION-HMP plug-and-play video conferencing application.

SURF’s three-level HMP platform improves performance, cuts time to market, and helps raise corporate profits. Leveraging the processing power of any COTS Intel server GPU, and SURF’s 20 years’ expertise in multimedia, signaling and codec transcoding, the combination of cutting-edge technology and deep industry know-how has enabled SURF to process up to 90% more data per server, reduce energy consumption in parallel, and support the highest quality transcoding for the greatest number of codecs and standards.

By integrating SURF-HMP, Panamax will enhance the transcoding gateway on their iMax integrated carrier switch to handle a greater number of legacy and next-gen codecs, while substantially reducing energy consumption, server count, and call latency. Similarly, the potential combination of Motion-HMP and the Bridge2Call UC&C suite will improve service and application support, taking the UC&C suite towards ISBC and full IMS for the telecom industry, while ORION-HMP’s top-level video conferencing wraps up a complete carrier-class solution.

“When seeking a technology partner for our next generation product line, and the Bridge2Call UC&C suite in particular, Panamax was looking for a software-based transcoding solution with full signaling support that could also provide our clients high-quality and dependable capabilities on both SIP/H.323, and the next-gen WebRTC model,” commented Manoj Jain, VP Global Marketing of the Bankai Group. “As Motion-HMP supports all these requirements, as well as easy-to-use JSON APIs, we are confident that SURF represents the best partner for quickly upgrading our product offering among Tier 1 and Tier 2 vendors.”

Ariel Linker, SURF’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing commented: “SURF supports partners like Panamax via friendly per-use licensing models and never-before-seen platform scalability. The Panamax implementation drives home the fact that SURF-HMP’s unique system architecture combined with GPU, multi-core and hyper-thread technology is helping to keep our clients’ operating costs low and profit margins high, while providing true flexibility in new product offerings. We are honored to have been chosen by a distinguished solution provider such as PANAMAX, marking yet another success of our revolutionary HMP platforms.”

GPUs is Most Probably Where We’re Headed

Tsahi Levent-Levi, a blogger covering WebRTC who recently authored a white paper sponsored by SURF, has placed these thoughts on his blog.

“What made writing this whitepaper so interesting for me was the fact that there really is a transition happening – not to using WebRTC – that already happened as far as I can tell. It is something different. A transition from simple WebRTC services that require a bit of signaling to services that process the media in the backend. This processing can be anything from recording to gatewaying, streaming, interoperating or modifying media in transit. And it seems like many commercial use cases that start simple end up requiring some kind of server side media processing.”
