The use of people’s own mobile devices on the job is one of the major IT trends and is described by the motto ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD). By means of an application (mostly free of charge), these devices can be simply transformed into high-performance video conferencing terminals. Users can access video conferences on the move. Hence the participants can use either a conference room or a desktop computer or join via their mobile phone or tablet. There are only a few minimum hardware requirements. Anyone can access mobile video conferences via a web-enabled computer, smartphone, or tablet computer with a webcam either from the office, hotel, home, or every place with a sufficient internet connection.
Merely the upgrade of mobile network coverage currently constrains mobile video conferencing. Wi-Fi access is required to achieve high quality and optimal transmission performance. Because of the progressing upgrade of mobile networks and the widespread availability of wireless LAN, mobile video conferencing is certainly going to experience further growth.
Not only for companies, but mobile video conferencing is also a useful aid in education, for projects, work, or seminars. Via mobile video conferencing, the users simply need to be at a place with Wi-Fi access to participate in a seminar or discussion group. This also applies to medical facilities since an external medical specialist can be simply consulted from outside the hospital.
In trade, mobile video conferencing facilitates especially sales and communication with customers as well as sales representatives. Beyond that, it can be useful for restaurants and hotels.
