The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) is an autonomous organisation under the Department of Agricultural Research and Education, Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India. With 48 ICAR Institutes, 5 Bureaus, 11 Project Directorates and 30 National Research Centres, there was a requirement to create an effective means of communication and collaboration for better decision making and smooth information flow.

The challenge provided was to establish a State-of-the-Art Video Conferencing and IP Telephony Network amongst its 23 sites spread across India. The solution thus provided was Polycom's Audio and Video Conferencing solutions.

The ICAR now has Video Conferencing facility between 23 locations across India and is able to seamlessly and instantly collaborate with all the locations. The central site connects to the various different sites utilising Polycom Video end points (VSX 7000s), Audio Conference Units (VTX 1000)and the central controlling unit  (MCU MGX 100). All 23 sites also have IP Telephony facilities (IP Phones 7961G). The Call Manager (IP Telephone systems MCS-7825) is installed in the NASC Complex office in New Delhi. The back bone connectivity is provided by ERNET through implementation of QoS on the routers because of Real Time Traffic.

The result has been a seamless experience for the Council. The system since it became operational, has simplified the mode of communication between all sites across India.
