The ReadyCloud Video software is a network-delivered conferencing solution fully managed by Gen-i and hosted in its local Tier-3 datacentres.
The service is available on a per month per subscription basis. A spokesperson told Reseller News that it is available on "a range of monthly pricing options based on whether a client wants to register their endpoints, integrate the service into their unified communications (UC) platform, or utilise 1080p resolution."
Gen-i claims customers can leverage existing video endpoints and hardware to use ReadyCloud Video, and scale services both up and down as required.
The service supports the fully-featured registration of Polycom and Cisco VC endpoints. It can also support integration with Cisco Unified Collaboration Manager, and Cisco VCS, with Lync Integration roadmapped for the next service release.
A free video software client is available for PC (Windows and Mac OS), tablets (iOS and Android), and smartphones (iOS and Android).
Gen-i WAN clients can use the service over their existing network.
According to chief operating officer (COO), Jo Allison, ReadyCloud Video complements Gen-i’s other core Cloud services, ReadyCloud Collaboration and ReadyCloud Mobility.
“Following the acquisition of our sister company Revera last year, Gen-i has focused on delivering Cloud services that respond to the increasingly mobile-centric business environment, and deliver greater efficiency, agility and flexibility for our clients,” Allison said.
“With video communication becoming more prevalent, it made sense to bring a Cloud video service to market that delivers these business benefits.”
