Adapting Webconference Cloud Services to R&E communities

Current National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) in Europe aim to provide services beyond traditional connectivity services to their users. Webconference tools are more convenient, engaging and less resourceful solution for end users, compared to traditional videoconference systems. Desktop videoconferencing services have been requested by users and became more popular. As result, webconference became a common tool on every day work within research institutions. Unfortunately, Webconference platforms are provided “as-is” by manufacturers and, although, often targeted to business and education, lack some features that the European Academia needs. This communication describes the work done by FCCN while implementing the webconference service’s second generation using a standard SaaS contract on the cloud.
