(Nasdaq: WONE - News), a provider of video communications solutions, today announced Wire One will deploy Cable & Wireless' global IP-VPN QoS solution to support Glowpoint(SM), Wire One's award-winning IP-based videoconferencing service. With its global reach and ability to support the quality of service requirements of video and voice over IP, Cable & Wireless' IP-VPN QoS solution will help Wire One support new subscriber growth by significantly enhancing its ability to deliver global access to Glowpoint while providing the same high level of network performance, reliability and quality of service its customers have come to expect in the United States.Cable & Wireless and Wire One also announced today that Cable & Wireless will become a Glowpoint sales agent. By aligning sales and marketing resources in support of a unified solution, the two companies hope to drive new subscriber growth and enhance their ability to deliver global access to prospective videoconferencing customers."Cable & Wireless was a logical choice to align with because they could offer Wire One a global MPLS-based IP network solution with the flexibility and performance to support Glowpoint, which frees us to focus on what we do best: providing first class customer service and a superior video communications experience," said Michael Brandofino, Wire One's Chief Technology Officer. "Our goal to cost-effectively expand Glowpoint's geographic reach is also being met through this relationship. We will now be able to deliver Glowpoint with the same reliability and quality of service its domestic customers have come to expect to regions where, in the past, it has been difficult to provide coverage, such as Northern Europe and the Pacific Rim."
