Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) March 2, 2010
SimpleSignal, a leading service provider of hosted business telephone solutions for small and medium sized businesses, and Vidtel, an innovative video conferencing service provider, announced at Channel Partners Conference in Las Vegas their distribution agreement to market Vidtel's Hosted Multi-Point Video Conferencing Service to SimpleSignal’s hosted unified communications customers.
Today, very few small-to-medium-sized enterprises have sufficient in-house resources for business-grade multi-point video conferencing. The video conferencing equipment required is too resource-intensive for all but the largest enterprises. SimpleSignal and Vidtel have partnered to deliver a hosted solution that even the smallest enterprises will find accessible. With this outsourced solution, SMBs have no need to acquire additional expensive infrastructure to initiate an ad hoc multi-party video conferencing call.
“SimpleSignal is well-recognized as a visionary service provider in the hosted voice market, often the first to roll out new applications and products to its SMB customers. We are excited to help fulfill SimpleSignal’s objective of bringing simplified unified communications to SMBs of all sizes with our multi-point video conferencing service,” said Scott Wharton, CEO of Vidtel.
Vidtel’s multi-point video conferencing service integrates with SimpleSignal’s BroadSoft® BroadWorks® application server with Vidtel’s video conferencing service and Polycom® VVXTM 1500 business media phones. The service enables three or more VVX 1500s to connect via a simple dial-in number for instant multi-way video conferencing.
“This new offer is nothing short of revolutionary. Now small to medium-sized businesses have no need for an extensive video conferencing system – a few people with a video phone can now easily dial a regular number to be connected. Previously, only point-to-point calling was realistic on these devices. This service also advances unified communications, seamlessly integrating video conferencing with our hosted VoIP service and amplifying the value of SimpleSignal’s hosted VoIP offer. We’re excited to be delivering this service with Vidtel, a cutting-edge video conferencing service provider,” said Dave Gilbert, SimpleSignal’s CEO.
SimpleSignal will begin offering the Multi-Point Video Conferencing service developed by Vidtel to customers beginning in Q2 2010.
