Global technology services company EDS is working with Verizon Video Conferencing in an attempt to reduce its carbon emissions in Australia and New Zealand 25 percent by 2010. EDS has deployed Verizon Video Conferencing over Verizon Private IP to connect 10 of its sites across Australia and New Zealand. EDS hopes to improve collaboration across its operations and reduce employee air travel by nearly a third.
Verizon provides EDS with dedicated video conferencing bandwidth, enabling a high-quality, secure and reliable meeting experience, which in turn promotes internal use. EDS also uses Verizon Audio Conferencing, giving the company access to a range of meeting technologies as an alternative to in-person meetings.
