Zoom and Deutsche Telekom bring Zoom X to German market
Zoom Video Communications and Deutsche Telekom are collaborating to offer a jointly developed product for the German market called ‘Zoom X’.
The new platform is powered by Deutsche Telekom and will be developed for business, corporate and public sector customers from mid-2022.
Zoom X real time media will run within the network of Deutsche Telekom, enabling users to set up and manage meetings across all end devices.
Deutsche Telekom will also provide the dial-in phone numbers for Germany and 50 other international countries to join meetings via phone only.
"Zoom X as an intuitive platform expands our offering for business customers and combines all relevant communication services,” says Hagen Rickmann, managing director of business customers at Deutsche Telekom.
“This way, we are helping to meet the market demand. Together with Zoom, we are thus driving the development of innovative solutions that facilitate new ways of working.”
The firms added that with Zoom X, business customers no longer need their own phone system for voice communications given that they’ll be able to communicate out of one application regardless of location and device.
Calls to a landline can be routed to a cell phone, even in a running call.
“By joining forces with Deutsche Telekom, we combined the seamless video communication platform that the German market loves with Deutsche Telekom's trusted network and service,” adds Ryan Azus, chief revenue officer of Zoom.
Alongside the new Zoom platform, Deutsche Telekom recently announced it would join an initiative for common infrastructure to meet Gaia-X requirements.
