BCS Global Opens Door to New Era of Dramatically Enhanced Video
Collaboration Across Enterprises
BCS Global's Virtual Presence B2B service makes video communication
between organizations using OVCC compliant services 'As easy as
making a phone call'
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- BCS Global
Networks Ltd continues to lead the way in visual collaboration by
launching innovative new video communication service Virtual Presence
B2B, one of the first Open Visual Communications Consortium (OVCC)
compliant multi-network managed video services.
Virtual Presence B2B is designed to break down existing barriers to
the wider adoption of high definition video collaboration between
businesses of all sizes that are served by different service
providers. Members of the OVCC have been working together over the
past year to achieve this through interoperability agreements that
create a blueprint to deliver telepresence quality video
collaboration across any vendor, any network and any device around
BCS Global's position, as a founding member of the OVCC, allows
customers to video conference with any enterprises that are connected
to carriers AT&T, Bharti Airtel, BT, Masergy and Orange Business
Dan Tanel, BCS Global's Chief Technology Officer, comments, "BCS
Global has helped many businesses increase adoption of video
collaboration within their organization through our industry leading
Virtual Presence portfolio of services. Until now, communicating and
working with partners, customers and suppliers via video has been
challenging, often inconsistent and limited to providers with
bilateral interoperability agreements."
With BCS Global's Virtual Presence B2B service these problems are
eliminated and setting up high definition video collaboration
meetings between enterprises, using interoperable systems, becomes as
easy as arranging a phone conference.
"The service is powered by an interconnected network from multiple
service providers and with the reassurance of a robust
round-the-clock support model. It represents a major step by service
providers who have worked together to evolve the industry and will
continue to do so, adding new partners and services in the future,"
Virtual Presence B2B is available to users who subscribe to BCS
Global's existing Virtual Presence service through its channel
partners. Virtual Presence is a comprehensive end-to-end managed
video collaboration service that enables people to meet face to face
and enjoy the full benefits of their video communications technology
- with increased reliability, flexibility, performance, scalability
and cost savings. It can be deployed as a cloud-based managed service
or as a customer-hosted managed service using either BCS Global's or
the customer's video infrastructure.
"Today's organizations are more geographically dispersed than ever.
Virtual Presence B2B will improve significantly the effectiveness and
productivity of business communication between people in different
organizations. We believe this is the next step in accelerating the
take-up of video collaboration and ultimately its replacement of
telephony," concludes Tanel.
