Expansion of the capacities for web and video conferencing



09.04.2020 | Due to the increased demand for online communication, the DFNconf conference service (Pexip and Adobe Connect) of the German Research Network and also of large commercial providers for web and video conferences is currently frequently down or restricted. To be able to compensate for these uncertainties, additional capacities for flexible scenarios are to be built up quickly, which will open up various alternative options. Servers for a provision of open source systems such as Jitsi Meet or BigBlueButton were ordered immediately, but cannot be delivered at present. At the same time, the software solution Zoom was purchased as a campus license and has already been rolled out for employees. All information can be found on the websites at hu.berlin/hu-zoom.
