Mconf web conferencing was officially launched as a production level service last week at two successful Mconf web conferencing launch events. The events took place at the CSIR ICC in Pretoria, on Wednesday 22nd July 2015, and at CPUT Bellville campus on Thursday 23rd July 2015.
The event was conducted using the SA NREN’s Mconf web conferencing installation which enabled a speaker from the Mconf Technology’s web conferencing development team in Porto Alegre, Brazil to listen in and present at the session.
