Level 3 Communications Announces Agreement with Biosidus

Level 3 Communications, Inc. has announced an agreement and case study with Biosidus. This project required installation of videoconference rooms to connect operational plants in Bernal to production facilities in Almagro and to the new headquarter offices in Buenos Aires. Biosidus's previous communication technology was obsolete and the company needed an overhaul. The new headquarters configuration was the catalyst to create a simple and accessible communication solution for multiple devices at locations around the globe that enabled access from both public and private networks. Level 3's Enhanced Video Collaboration (EVC) was the solution of choice. In addition, Biosidus added a videoconference solution using Polycom equipment for four physical rooms that connected the plant locations of Almagro and Bernal with two rooms at the Munro facility. Multiple devices were integrated through the private network (MPLS), with collaborative access and a virtual videoconference room.
