Service Description

There are four service choices when considering video conferencing solutions:

  • Microsoft Teams
  • Microsoft Skype for Business
  • Cisco Telepresence
  • AT&T BlueJeans

Each of these service offerings has its own strengths and weaknesses that need to be considered for a particular deployment scenario. Additionally, the solutions can sometimes be used in combination with each other to achieve the best possible service fit. Agencies should consult with Division of Enterprise Technology (DET) subject matter experts to determine which solution, or combination of solutions will be optimal.  Some of the inputs into choosing the right service are:

  • Location of video conferencing participants
  • Room size and setup
  • Conference format
  • Equipment costs
  • Service costs and billing model
  • Conference recording requirements
  • Ease of use
  • Participant makeup (State employee, local government, citizen, partner)
  • Outside participant technology platform considerations

Price
