Holmdel-based cloud communications leader Vonage was chosen by Next Education, an India-based education solutions provider, to support virtual classroom sessions by embedding video directly into its existing web platform and mobile app with the Vonage Video API.
Founded in 2007, Next Education provides education solutions for K-12 institutions in India, reaching more than 12 million students and 240,000 teachers across more than 12,000 schools.
Next Education says that when the COVID-19 crisis began it saw an increased need for one-to-one and one-to-many classroom sessions between teachers and students, as well as live lectures and classroom training sessions for students in different cities or even countries. By embedding the Vonage Video API directly into its existing platform, Next Education can easily and reliably provide remote, interactive and adaptive assessments, live streaming, and classroom learning sessions to millions of children.
“Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we saw a rapid increase in the need for video solutions – up to 10 million video minutes per day. This called for us to upgrade our existing systems to be able to cater for the increased video traffic,” said Beas Dev Ralhan, chief executive officer and co-founder of Next Education. “From a plethora of video solutions, we finally found our partner in Vonage. Vonage enabled us to scale quickly to meet our increase in video traffic via its Video API which was easy to embed directly into our existing website and app.”
