GlowPoint enables video conferencing across carrier networks
GlowPoint, a video communications company based in New Jersey, announced it will support cross-carrier telepresence and video calling applications for Polycom customers. GlowPoint CEO Joe Laezza said the company's Telepresence interExchange Network (TEN) allows users to connect to customers, partners and vendors using Polycom videoconferencing equipment regardless of carrier while maintaining security, quality and interoperability.
"Channels and service providers, as well as enterprise customers, recognize the value of broad B2B collaboration, which is resulting in significant interest and adoption of TEN," Laezza said in a prepared statement. "We are proud to have Polycom join us in bringing this unique B2B capability to the Polycom user market and partner base."
GlowPoint said that allowing customers to call across networks and connect to other standards-based telepresence systems allows for more secure and useful collaboration between organizations.
Polycom began a push last November to improve its videoconferencing offering to meet additional demand from companies looking to replace expensive travel budgets with virtual meetings.
