Eurovision builds its collaboration project with Activeo
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) is the largest alliance of public service media (PSM) in the world and has 73 members in 56 countries, operating 781 television services and 1,049 radio services broadcast in 123 languages for a potential audience of 1.03 billion people. Its activities include the Eurovision and Euroradio.
Due to its important geographic scope and need for increased mobility, the EBU has decided to develop collaboration to improve performance and agility. Using for many years a Cisco IP telephony solution, the strategy was to offer users the ability to keep their current Jabber client and allow them to interact in the Webex Cloud environment.
“Thanks to this stable infrastructure, scalable and feature-rich, the solution adoption was immediate. We have also equipped our meeting rooms of video systems and videoconferencing which fit perfectly into the overall solution. This project is a success thanks to the team customer oriented. She provided all the support to achieve the cost targets, deadlines and quality” testifies Philippe Gehin, Head of IT of the EBU.
