(Jamaica Observer) Telecommunications firm LIME has signed an agreement with the CARICOM secretariat to provide videoconferencing equipment and services to Jamaica and seven other member countries, as well as five other territories in the region.
In a statement, LIME said the regional body appointed the company, following a request for proposal to supply and install the equipment in Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, St Kitts, St Lucia, St Vincent, and five other territories, namely, Belize, Guyana, Suriname, Trinidad, and Haiti.
Earlier this year, LIME revealed that the company would be offering videoconferencing solutions to the public for corporate, enterprise and government organisations.
LIME said it would be working in collaboration with Polycom, a global leader in unified communications solutions with the industry’s broadest portfolio of tele-presence and video-communications infrastructure.
“The solutions being offered range in size, features and capabilities from smaller scale, flat screen, transportable systems to high-definition virtual tele-presence conference suites, which closely simulate most elements of face-to-face meetings,” the company said.
It added that the multifaceted systems include a range of useful and novel features, including collaboration tools for sharing graphics, presentations and rich-media content.
