What Do We mean by “Natural Collaboration”?
Working together with one or more people as if
you were physically face to face
Get visual and audible feedback from
counterparts – unimpaired by the spatial
disconnection. The quality of image and audio is
so good - as if you were really together!
Share information in a natural and intuitive way:
- Your counterparts can see what you see.
- Its quick and ease to share so you do it!
Human people remember 20% of
what they hear,
but 50% of what they see and hear…

What Are the Enablers of Natural Collaboration?
HD Video
Wide angle camera (not just head & shoulders) plus fantastic image quality. You can
see the details of their body posture, the frown lines, smile etc, so you know if they are
sincere .
HD sound
You hear the real tone of their voice, the gasp of air etc – better help you sense their
attitude or response.
Steerable microphone array
Helps get a clear, clean audio input that helps eliminate unwanted background noise.
Clean audio signal in, that can be played out so well over those 3 high quality speakers
Short delay
Low latency design (no MCU)
Audio/Video Synchronization, i.e. lip to voice sync very natural, just like being face to
face! Other systems suffer from noticeable delays/sync issues.
Ad Hoc conferencing
Just call someone, add another participant on the fly, no need to pre-booked a bridge or
reserve ports. Almost as if you walked into their office for a quick discussion.

Architecture
Aastra architecture
Traditional MCU architecture
Aastra call managers/servers only route calls
and process signaling.
All media streams are decoded & re-encoded
at the MCU.
• Low latency for a more natural interaction
• No extra bandwidth required at the server
• Scales up smoothly: no extra HW required
• Could easily be virtualized in a Data Center
• Introduces latency in the video
• Requires high bandwidth at the server
• Hardware depends on streams to encode/decode
• Cannot be virtualized (video encoding/decoding)

Impact on the Network ?

Toronto
Architecture : Centralized vs. Distributed
• Quotes from Jason Rolletson, Director of Product Management at Cisco
during the last Enterprise Connect conference:
Berlin
“You have to think beyond voice. Distributed
architectures will come back into favor as
centralization produces bad video
performance.”

Stockholm
Aastra way - Distributed
Cost structure
• Distributed architecture is generally way
cheaper than centralized architecture
