NIC is currently providing videoconferencing services from 490 cities in India including all north-eastern state capitals over its high speed satellite based network called "NICNET". This is the largest videoconferencing network in India, spread across length and width of the country. The advantage of using satellite based communications is that it can deliver high speed data and provide videoconferencing at remote locations, which were earlier not easily accessible. NIC has invested in an in-house Multipoint Conference Server (MCS), which enables several sites to participate in a live conference with audio-video and document sharing. MCS is the central point of connectivity for endpoints. It enables different networks, different bandwidths and different types of endpoints to communicate effectively. MCS supports both "Voice Activated" and "Chairman Control" mode of conferencing. NIC also supports international connectivity using public ISDN network.
