Both devices are purpose-built for Lifesize’s cloud-based video service, which, instead of using the public internet, routes calls via IBM Cloud Pro, a 2,000 Gbps fibre network made up of 16 data centres worldwide, each with more than 5,000 servers, and an associate network of carriers in a further 20 cities.
