Virtela and Vectus have already signed their first joint customer, a leading solutions provider for financial markets and multi-nationals.

Virtela Global Footprint

"This end-customer deployment with Vectus will provide a high-performance, highly-resilient telepresence solution enabling the business to conduct face-to-face meetings without wasting time, money or environmental resources on travel," said John Powell, Virtela's vice president of global channels. "Leveraging videoconferencing or telepresence

Together with Vectus, we're hoping to extend the benefits of these integrated solutions to new regions and industries for companies of all sizes."

These video technologies reduce travel costs and improve employee productivity, serving to increase the bottom line.  With Virtela and Vectus, organizations will benefit from the fastest, most secure and globally-extensive services in the industry.

"We chose to work with Virtela because their global footprint and service capabilities are a perfect fit for delivering the worldwide promise of telepresence," said Gerald Tozin, president of Vectus Media.  "A telepresence marketing and integration company needs a partner that can provide quality-assured broadband connectivity in even the most far-flung areas of the world, and Virtela is unmatched in its capability to do that."

The environmental benefits of telepresence are notable: by traveling less, organizations reduce their carbon footprints and consumption of valuable resources.  Virtela is not only extending the environmental benefits of telepresence through its relationship with Vectus, but also recently announced its membership in the Carbon Free Meeting Coalition to help organizations leverage advanced communications technologies to reduce their carbon footprints.

As a Virtela channel partner, Vectus will continue to meet cross-industry needs, as well as improve global reach and offer carbon-conscious collaborative communications technologies for reducing organizations' impact on the environment.
