Orange launches cloud-based videoconferencing
Orange Business Services new Telepresence Pass offers enterprises cost-conscious video calling
Orange Business Services is broadening its video services portfolio with Telepresence Pass, a new cloud-based video conferencing service for enterprises.
The France Telecom-backed company said that the solution was “easy-to-adopt” and future-proofed that gave organisations a telepresence infrastructure in the cloud that was fully managed with end-to-end quality guarantees for a monthly subscription fee.
It said that as the service was available as a service, customers did not need significant investments in equipment or in the management of the solution.
"Our ambition is to make video available to enterprises wherever they are, with no limitations," said Vivek Badrinath, chief executive, Orange Business Services. "The key is to offer customers many video collaboration options so that they can choose the solution that best suits their business needs."
It said that it had telepresence-ready infrastructure in 21 different countries and with continuous increases in bandwidth it was able to offer service availability of up to 99.95 per cent.
"Of all applications, video is probably the most unforgiving," said Nicolas Roy, head of Network Solutions Business Unit, Orange Business Services. "The Group continues to invest approximately EUR750 million per year for international network backbone and related IT infrastructure to ensure the coverage, bandwidth and quality required for an excellent video experience."
The company has Telepresence interoperability agreements with five service providers. In addition to AT&T, BT, Tata and Telefonica, Orange Business Services announced its latest interoperability agreement with Verizon Enterprise Solutions. Orange offers options ranging from self-managed to fully managed turnkey solutions.
