Hi all

in my company, we have installed Tandberg Video conference solution and it is IP based, we can call and receive calls from any other IP Video conferences with no problem.
but when we cannot call ISDN video conference or receive calls because it is prohibited by the government.
and someone told me that there is a providers that can link my video conf. IP address to an ISDN number so i can call or receive calls through it.
so my questions are:
1- did anyone tried it before? what is your review about it? what are the costs?
2- does anyone know a good service providers for such solutions?
3- your recommendations.


thanks in advanced

Well, it's not prohibited by the government everywhere. More-likely it's prohibited by bandwidth, though. ISDN might handle 600KB per minute (80Kbps), and that rate requires highly compressed video with visible artifacts at normal screen sizes.

ISDN is not offered to the public in the area where I live. The state government actually forced Verizon to provide ISDN to a couple stores nearby just for their state-run lottery game machines... so the local switching office has an ISDN rack installed with empty slots left, but they still won't sell ISDN (nor xDSL) service to anyone else in the exchange. Personally, I use 3G for 'broadband' even though I'm limited to about the same total bandwidth per month as I could get running a 56k telephone modem 14-hours/day.

But I really don't have any ''recommendations'' per se, still I thought your post deserved a reply; You are not required to accept this as a solution, of course... if you just leave it open long enough the cleanup crew should close it and refund your points.
