TOKYO -- Oki Electric Industry Co., Ltd. (TSE: 6703) today announced it has launched “Visual Nexus® ver3.2-3,” the latest version of its video conferencing system, “Visual Nexus,” and featuring enhanced functions for large-scale operation. This system also includes a multi-tenant function that enables video conferences to be operated via application service providers, and a server load dispersion function. The new version will be available to the worldwide market with shipments slated for July 15, 2008.

“This new Visual Nexus is a perfect solution for companies seeking to reduce their traveling costs at a time when oil prices are surging. Companies already equipped with video conferencing systems are also likely to expand their systems with the increase in usage,” said Atsuhisa Suzuki, President of Visual Nexus Company at OKI. “The Visual Nexus Ver3.2-3 responds to this trend, offering a highly stable system to process large amounts of data as operations expand. With the new functions, OKI enables companies and service providers to maximize system operation efficiency and reduce system operating costs.“ OKI has added the following three functions to the Visual Nexus® ver3.2-3:

1. Enhancement on basic functions for large-scale operation Now, users can register up to 5,000 users and devices to be managed on the video conference system, enabling 1000 devices to be connected simultaneously to the gatekeeper.

2. Function to disperse server loadThis is a function that averages out overall system load by identifying, from among multiple servers, the one with the least connection load and automatically allocating connections for individual devices.

3. Multi-tenant function to enable ASP operationThe number of service providers offering application services, including Saas, is expected to increase going forward. Application service providers need to minimize their capex and system management load by sharing a system with multiple tenants (companies). With the multi-tenant function, providers can set dedicated tenants for each user on a single system, which can then be managed independently. The system can thus be shared while maintaining security among tenants.

This function enables providers to:

  • Add, delete and edit tenants

  • Set up a tenant manager for each tenant and authorize them to manage parameters such as user, group, conference room for each tenant
