Dubai, UAE, 18 October 2009: FVC, a leading value added distribution in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA), has announced the signing of a distribution agreement with IPeak Networks for the MENA region. FVC will be selling and supporting IPeak Networks’ IPQ Network Appliance and IPQ Concentrator throughout the MENA region.

K.S. Parag, MD at FVC, said, “As the demand for IP based communication
grows in the region, we see a need for IPeak Networks’ automatic packet
loss recovery solutions that will benefit real time applications like
videoconferencing and VoIP. This technology will help our
Videoconferencing and VoIP customers run their calls much better on
public IP networks and will be a useful addition to our Rich Media
portfolio.”

IPeak Networks’ unique patent-pending zero-latency protection against
packet loss allows its IPQ products to greatly improve the quality of
video conferences conducted over the public Internet.  Packet loss is
endemic to the Internet and as little as 1% packet loss can make a
video conference unusable.  IPQ reduces packet loss by 95% and more to
enable smooth and synchronized video conference calls using the public
Internet. IPQ products for video conferencing provide low-cost
plug-and-call protection against packet loss: IPQ’s transparent
operation mode means there is no need for network engineering, no
changes to installed video conference systems required, and an
immediately positive impact on the video conferencing system user
experience.

Brett McAteer, Director of Marketing, IPeak Networks, said “Right from
the start, FVC demonstrated a complete understanding of the way IPQ is
changing the game for video conferencing over-the-top of the public
Internet. We were looking for the right partner to help build the
market for our ground-breaking technology and there is no doubt that
the partnership between FVC and IPeak Networks represents a regional
force for change, bringing the quality and the performance required for
real-time network applications to the public Internet.”

FVC and IPeak Networks will be available at Gitex on FVC’s stand Z-L1 in Zabeel Hall.
