University of Oriente Gains International Recognition with TrueConf Video Conferencing

University of Oriente Santiago de Cuba is the largest higher educational institution in Cuba. More than eight thousand students in technical, humanitarian and natural & applied sciences study here. University of Oriente has an extensive network of branches throughout the Santiago de Cuba Province. The university branches operate in 9 municipalities.

University of Oriente continuously cooperates with foreign academics who actively participate in MA programs and review academic papers, theses and PhD dissertations. The university administration regularly allocated funds to organize foreign business trips for research fellows. In addition, university employees had to make frequent trips to Santiago de Cuba to participate in meetings and general university events.

To solve this problem, the university administration required an easy-to-administer and easy-to-use video conferencing system. The solution was to survive low bandwidth internet and work in LAN. Seeking out a preferable software, the university administration tested various cloud video conferencing services, but only TrueConf solution managed to meet the university’s requirements and operated well in difficult technical conditions. Additional factors that drove organization’s decision were cross-platform apps, financial viability and strong customer focus.

“TrueConf Server is one of the most complete and stable systems that we have deployed here in our network”, says Ernesto Eduardo Diaz Conde, System Administrator at University of Oriente Santiago de Cuba. “We have also had great attention from technical support, who have always been able to answer all our questions”.

“Application of innovative technologies in education process is not just a whim of education institutions”, says Dmitriy Odintsov, CBDO at TrueConf. “Higher education facilities cannot succeed without digital strategy, efficient workflow and international experience.”
