Industry scenarios
Problem:
Regional branches must report to HQ once a month. Travelling to and from these vital meetings takes 3 days for each regional representative, costing time and money.
Solution:
With PCCW’s desktop video-conferencing solutions, regional staff can participate without travelling on company time. No more waiting in the office for meetings that cross time zones. If meetings are after hours, participants can simply access them from home using their notebooks.
Problem:
Patients in an isolation ward are separated from family, friends and psychological support.
Solution:
Designated hospital visiting areas equipped with video-conferencing tools allow patients to see and hear friends and family. Facilities can also be used to contact specialists when psychological support is required.

Problem:
Doctors need to consult with geographically-dispersed experts on time-sensitive cases.
Solution:
Video-conferencing tools enable hospital staff to network with experts worldwide when conducting joint examinations. Experts are able to monitor patients visually, even if they are overseas.
Problem:
Elderly persons living away from the nearest medical facility have difficulty travelling for routine checkups.
Solution:
Video-conferencing tools can help link medical facilities to the elderly in their homes, enabling initial diagnoses to be performed remotely.

This is common practice in the US. A doctor not only sees and talks to the patient, but is able to take a pulse reading remotely. Video-conferencing solutions like these are often used to assist patients with non-critical, long-term illnesses.
Problem:
During a pandemic, schools are closed, so teachers cannot monitor student progress.
Solution:
Establishing electronic classrooms via video conferencing enables teachers and students to maintain two-way communications while classes are suspended to prevent infection.

Problem:
Schools, particularly in rural areas, struggle to take part in inter-school activities.
Solution:
Video-conferencing tools facilitate inter-school activities such as debates and talent competitions.
