Cisco has released a white paper predicting that more than 50 percent of all work loads will be processed in the cloud by the year 2014.  In addition, it predicts a 22 percent compound annual growth rate for cloud data centers, which will handle 57 percent of workloads by 2015.

The cloud is the key to working efficiently in the future.

IVCi is ahead of this trend with its MVE managed video experience. This service provides secure, cloud-based video to its customers who use desktop, room, and mobile devices. IVCi has found that when IT organizations are taxed with additional responsibilities, the move to the cloud is a significant trend. The benefits of cloud services are numerous; reduction in upfront capital expenses, redundancy, the ability to have the latest and greatest technology, security, and much more.

Public Room Experience is a new service that gives customers access to a world-wide network of over 3000 public video conferencing and telepresence rooms.

Public Room Experience accommodates the frequent requests IVCi receives from clients who need to participate in a video meeting while away from their facility and want the same meeting room experience.

With Public Room Experience customers looking to book a public video conferencing room on their own can utilize IVCi’s web site to check real-time availability of a room and book with any major credit card.. The customer is then provided with all the necessary information about the conference room location, including the number of participants that will fit in the room, the type of equipment installed, and catering options available. When this service is incorporated with IVCi’s Managed Video Experience (MVE), IVCi handles the reservation from start to finish, including testing with the site to ensure excellent call quality prior to the meeting taking place.

Public Room Experience frees users from having to answer questions that are usually asked when setting up a video meeting in a public room, such as what are the bandwidth requirements of the meeting, will IP or ISDN be used, etc. IVCi handles all set up and technical questions for the user.

“The Public Room Experience is part of our full-service approach to unified communications (UC) solutions for our customers,” said IVCi’s CEO Bob Swing. “Our goal is to be there every step of the way for our clients, and to make their video conferencing experience as seamless and worry-free as possible. This new service allows us to serve a segment of the market that been so far been underserved, and we are happy to share our expertise with them because we believe the power of video should be available to all.”

Public Room Experience is a service that can be utilized on its own, or as part of IVCi’s Managed Video Experience.

IVCi has expanded its strategic partnership with Talk and Vision, a provider of visual collaboration solutions and managed conferencing services throughout the European Union.

This expansion will tightly integrate both companies’ joint video network operation centers as well as enhance service and support options for both IVCi and Talk and Vision’s U.S and international customers.
IVCi and Talk and Vision have been providing UC services to mutual clients across the globe for over seven years. These UC services help multi-national businesses break down geographic barriers to effective communication with visual collaboration solutions that are implemented throughout their worldwide locations.

Blue Jeans had launched field trials earlier in the year to build buzz from an early subscriber base, but according to Stu Aaron, chief commercial officer, it has now begun full-bore recruitment of VAR and service provider partners.
