Englewood, CO and Mountain View, CA (Vocus) March 22, 2010
IP5280 Communications, specializing in business VoIP and cloud-based communications delivered via state-of-the-art unified Internet Protocol (IP) technologies, and Vidtel, an innovative video conferencing service provider, have partnered to bring Vidtel's Hosted Multi-Point Video Conferencing Service to IP5280’s customers, enabling businesses of any size to experience ad hoc, high-quality multi-party video conferencing without hassles.
This solution solves a critical problem for mid-market companies who seek to conduct business-grade multi-point video conferencing. Almost all small-medium enterprises (SMEs) find acquiring and managing video conferencing servers, handling addressing and dealing with firewall issues too resource-consuming. The Vidtel Multi-Point Video Conferencing Service to be offered by IP5280 is a cost-effective, hosted, outsourced solution utilizing the “cloud” (shared Internet infrastructure). IP5280 will integrate the Vidtel video conferencing services within its best-of-breed cloud computing infrastructure, called “CLOVER,” or “CLOud OVer Enterprise Resources.”
“IP5280 is one of the industry’s best in driving hosted voice, evidenced by their distinctive focus on the value of applications to their SME customers. Their proven capabilities in successfully conveying the value of a hosted application makes them an ideal partner for us,” said Scott Wharton, CEO of Vidtel.
“Vidtel, an industry innovator and leader in the video communications industry, has developed an offer that exemplifies the type of cloud-based unified communication application we seek to offer. Vidtel Multi-Point Video Conferencing Service will be the first application provided by a strategic partner who is added into the IP5280 CLOVER network, designed specifically to optimize the performance of interactive cloud-based applications,“ said Jeffrey Pearl, co-founder and managing partner of IP5280.
Vidtel’s multi-point video conferencing service integrates IP5280’s hosted voice offering with Polycom® VVXTM 1500 business media phones and the Vidtel network. The service enables three or more VVX 1500s to connect via a simple dial-in number for on-demand multi-way video conferencing.
Beginning in Q2 2010, IP5280 will offer Vidtel’s Multi-Point Video Conferencing service to its small-medium-sized enterprise customers.
