Radvision has worked closely with us to optimize the solution for using hardware-accelerated video processing. Together, we finely tuned the system to interoperate with the network on which the VEGA phone was deployed. With Radvision's BEEHD Client Framework, we were able to quickly and massively market LTE mobile handsets with exceptional video communication capabilities."
