Videxio adds support for Polycom to its fully automated video service platform
Lysaker, Norway, 1 November 2012 - Cloud video service provider Videxio is launching full automated support for Polycom endpoints and mobile clients.
The Videxio service platform can Video-enable any organization in minutes without the cost and complexity of investing in infrastructure. This removes the last barrier that has been preventing companies from starting to use high quality video communications.
Today, Videxio announces full support for the Polycom HDX endpoint product line as well as support for the Polycom RealPresence Mobile client for iPad, iPhone and Android devices.
This means that existing and new Polycom customers can be video-enabled within minutes using a range of endpoint subscriptions, personal video accounts, and virtual meeting rooms without the need to invest in infrastructure. Using the Videxio platform on the Polycom endpoints offers maximum employee flexibility and allows customers to attend meetings with high quality audio and video from any place - over the internet.
The Videxio smart roaming feature ensures that any Polycom device or mobile client automatically connects to the nearest Point of Presence (PoP) to enjoy the lowest latency and best quality video experience and enabling deployments in Europe, the US, and Asia without the need for any additional MPLS/QoS network cost. The Videxio network is open and standards based, and all you need to connect to the service is a good local internet connection.
