Tata Communications announced an agreement with Arkadin, making the company an official APAC provider of Tata Communications’ recently launched jamvee conferencing - an on-demand unified communication service which enables anyone to instantly access a business video meeting on any device – be it desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone, Telepresence or video conferencing rooms.
Connecting via video across multiple devices and platforms has never been easier. Delivered through the world’s only fibre optic cable ring around the globe, jamvee is a global video conferencing tool for enterprises that makes video conferencing - both within and between companies - as easy as making an audio conferencing call.
Serge Genetet, Managing Director and EVP, Arkadin Asia Pacific, says: “With demand for video conferencing exploding, we’re confident jamvee will be popular with enterprises that need a simple on-demand service with business-grade quality that also offers the flexibility to use existing video equipment. We’re thrilled to partner with Tata Communications and certain the alliance will help strengthen our value proposition for providing customers with advanced collaboration and unified communications solutions.”
The jamvee software application is compatible with Windows, OSX software-based devices, iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Users of Lync and other video conferencing software, as well as those with access to standard video conferencing systems such as Telepresence, can also meet using jamvee.
Up to 46 participants can join each conference at the touch of a button, bringing globally-dispersed teams in fast-moving businesses closer together than ever before as the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) culture continues to gather pace.
Anthony Bartolo, Senior Vice president, Unified Communications & Collaboration, Tata Communications says, “Our mission is to create the world’s richest open video ecosystem. The partnership with Arkadin enforces this strategy which will enable true unified communication for enterprises operating in today’s mobile, always-on and global environment. Using jamvee is as easy as making an audio conferencing call and together with Arkadin’s expertise in delivering collaboration services with dedicated local-language teams, we will enable more businesses to experience the benefit that true video collaboration brings.”
The partnership agreement with Arkadin will first roll-out in Australia and New Zealand followed by the rest of the Asia Pacific region.
Just like an audio conference you can access host and participant PINs on the jamvee portal, and send the participant PIN to people you want to meet with. Participants can then use any existing standards-based video system or Telepresence room that they have access to, or they simply download the free jamvee app from the Apple App Store or the jamvee portal. Everyone taking part in the meeting just dials the same number (or in the case of the jamvee app, presses the ‘Join Conference’ button) and enters their PIN to join the meeting – ensuring secure and private meetings both within your business and across multiple organisations / parties.
