Verizon (News - Alert) has launched a video communications offering that will grant government agencies and businesses video platforms that go beyond private networks. A partnership between Polycom (News - Alert) and several other MSPs worldwide make the new system possible.
The Verizon Open Video Communications will make it possible for enterprises to stream video meetings across a variety of devices and platforms using both private and public networks.
This move has been driven by the growing demand for video communications that go beyond the corporate firewalls. Restriction today of proprietary video platforms that limit these communications will see the Verizon Open Video Communications solution adopted quickly due to its ability to instantaneously add meeting participants at usage-based pricing.
"One of the biggest challenges in video adoption by large business and government customers is the ability to communicate beyond the four walls of their business,” said Mike Palmer, Verizon Enterprise Solutions vice president of product strategy. “With the deployment of 4G LTE (News - Alert) and a strong desire for workers to employ in the workplace commonplace apps such as video, this offering is an important step toward Verizon's goal of enabling our customers to use any device to connect to the people and information they need to work most effectively.”
Verizon has over 30 years of experience in delivering unified collaboration and communication services, including broadband across wireless and LAN networks to businesses, government agencies and consumers.
The Verizon Open Video Communication and the capabilities it offers to Verizon’s telepresence offering will see the company expand its reach and customer base even further.
