Vemics Selects Wire One's Glowpoint for EClassroom Network

Jan 21, 2003

Vemics has signed an agreement with Wire One that establishes Wire One's Glowpoint, an IP-based subscriber network dedicated to video communications, as the network of choice for users of Vemics' distance learning solution. Glowpoint is an IP network dedicated exclusively to carrying video traffic, via a variety of solutions, including DSL. Vemics' agreement with Wire One is intended to improve the quality, reliability, and functionality of distance learning for Vemics users. An initial sale of Glowpoint circuits through the agreement has already been made to Seton Worldwide, the distance learning arm of Seton Hall University, which is working with Vemics to deliver continuing education and specialized training programs to corporations in the insurance, health care, and financial services industries. Vemics is designed to enable live, fully interactive instructor-led courses to be delivered electronically to businesses or other learning locations worldwide. Video conferences carried by Glowpoint will be an integral part of this process. In conjunction with its agreement with Wire One, Vemics has added enhancements to its product that supports Glowpoint's VPN access and security protocols. As part of the agreement, Vemics will install a server on Wire One's Glowpoint network, providing customers and prospects with access to Vemics distance learning applications. In addition, Vemics and Wire One will collaborate on new business opportunities, joint marketing initiatives, and customer support services.
