Level 3 Communications has taken the wraps off a new cloud-based video conferencing solution that it says will boost productivity and improve the bottom line for enterprises thanks to its enhanced collaboration capabilities.
The business communications giant is working with Blue Jeans Network on the new service that's designed to be seamless and easy to use across any video platform, removing the traditional barriers to integrated video conferencing.
Level 3 says this cloud-based solution eliminates complexities, enhancing its collaboration services portfolio. It operates without the need of dedicated IT staff and improves efficiency while avoiding the traditional costs associated with video conferencing implementation, the company said. There is no hardware investment necessary, and it operates off of a reservation-less model, enabling on-demand video communication regardless of the platform.
"The rapid emergence of personal video capabilities among Internet-connected desktop and mobile devices, coupled with the increasing enterprise demand for traditional video-conferencing capabilities, has created a new and unique market for an 'any-to-any,' ubiquitous video conferencing service," said Bruno Zerbib, Level 3's vice president of product management. "This new solution demonstrates our focus on global enterprises, passion for reliability and overall commitment to providing a superior customer experience."
