Converged communications firm Polycom (NASDAQ:PLCM) announced that BT Conferencing will use the Polycom RealPresence Platform (RMX) to support its Video-as-a-Service (VaaS) offering for Polycom deployments. The two companies are seeking to build interoperability and to enable customer video collaboration through multiple platforms and devices.
According to the press release, BT Conferencing’s video cloud in conjunction with the RealPresence platform “offers the industry’s most scalable and flexible managed video collaboration service.” As a video software infrastructure, Polycom claims that RealPresence provides “carrier-grade reliability, security and industry-leading scalability” and is also interoperable with a broad range of communications platforms. Polycom launched RealPresence VaaS this past January.
“Video collaboration delivered from the cloud is a revolutionary way for organizations to keep their people connected and productive, improve teamwork organization-wide, cut costs, and accelerate better decision-making – without having to build out or support their own infrastructure,” said David Stark, VP Commercial, Portfolio & Marketing at BT Conferencing, in a prepared statement.
In addition, BT is a charter member of the Open Video Communications Consortium (OVCC), founded in 2011 by Polycom, which promotes open video collaboration across vendors, networks and devices.
