Installing the Service
BEEHD Launcher is a set of Web browser plug ins enabling video chat capability to the Web. It integrates into any Web page and allows a click-to-connect experience to any user, whether or not the user is signed up to the service.
The plug-in asks the user’s permission to self-install and then installs and launches the client with a predefined set of parameters, including a dial command.
Using Web integration, existing users can invite friends to an ad-hoc video chat even if they are not registered.
Supported platforms - BEEHD client SDKs are available for Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android, allowing users to use the service regardless of their device type.
Service on the go – users can login to the service with more than one platform and switch between platforms during the call. This means they can start a call from the desktop’s PC and continue it on their mobile when they leave the room.
Branding everywhere – using branding capabilities of the BEEHD clients, the service provider can brand even existing user equipment by installing a branded client.
Presence and IM
Presence is becoming the new dial-tone. Users today check the presence status of the callee to ensure his availability.
Text chat (instant messaging) is another common way for users to communicate. It is considered an important complementary means of communication.
BEEHD supports standards-based RCS/RCS-e Presence and IM, enabling your users to enjoy today’s modern communication trends while interfacing with your existing infrastructure.
Integration and interoperability
BEEHD offers integration to the existing billing, CRM and VoIP infrastructure in the organization.
Interoperability with dozens of end-points, clients and servers allows BEEHD to fit into any existing standards-based components and ensures a smooth transition or co-existence.
Traversing through Firewall and NAT
BEEHD clients can penetrate through different NAT topologies and Firewalled connections, so that the user does not need to think about connectivity. He simply connects.
BEEHD supports a variety of standards-based FW/NAT traversal solutions and suits the unknown customer network topology.
Spirent’s patent pending NetSense technology monitors the delay from the moment a packet left the transmitter station until it reaches the receiver. Upon network congestion, routers start to accumulate packets. NetSense recognizes that condition and signal the transmitter station to reduce bitrate, before routers are overflown and by that preventing packet-loss from happening.
SVC technology changes the simple reference scheme between frames and creates several temporal reference layers. By applying a powerful Reed-Solomon FEC (Forward Error Correction) mechanism to some of the packets the video stream is provided with resiliency to packet-loss.
The outcome is superb video quality
