NTT to launch cloud video conferencing
NTT Communications has selected collaboration service provider Arkadin and personal telepresence specialist Vidyo to provide cloud video conferencing services to its subsidiary NTT Bizlink.
Through the deal Bizlink will provide video conferencing services using Vidyo’s infrastructure-less service programme, delivered as a white-label service by Arkadin.
NTT Bizlink plans to combine the service with the NTT Group’s existing video conferencing offerings. It will launch a gateway service in December 2012 that will be available to customers over any internet or wireless connection.
“NTT Communications Group is a telecommunications visionary that recognises the strategic importance of personal telepresence as an essential productivity tool for businesses of all sizes,” said Olivier de Puymorin, CEO and founder of Arkadin. “We’re thrilled to partner with Vidyo to provide NTT Communications Group an affordable, high quality video conferencing solution for their customers.”
The solution is claimed to allow service providers a way to broaden their video conferencing portfolio without upfront infrastructure investment.
