Telecom to use Polycom's RealPresence platform to deliver video-as-a-service to business customers

Polycom has just announced that the Telecom Group in New Zealand will use the vendor's RealPresence platform to provide video-as-a-service to its business customers in the country.

Telecom will utilise the Polycom's RealPresence platform to power both Gen-i (Telecom’s ICT services

division) and Telecom hosted video offerings.

“In today’s competitive market, New Zealand businesses are tasked with finding the most efficient

and cost-effective ways to accelerate operations,” says Leanne Buer, Acting GM Marketing, Gen-i

Australasia. “We work alongside a broad range of corporate, government and business customers who

are looking for new ways to connect with customers and staff who are on the move or working remotely.

With our new cloud-based Video as a Service offering, in partnership with Polycom, we are making it

easier and more affordable for our customers to deploy video across their organisations. It’s as simple-to-

use as setting up a mobile phone service,” she added.

“Organisations have seen such strong results with on-premise video collaboration and they’re now

looking to expand that face-to-face collaborative power via the cloud or in a hybrid private (on premises)

and public cloud model. Delivering video as a service offering on a pay-for-use model vastly reduces

the up-front investment to almost nothing, so organisations can begin to reap the benefits of video

collaboration as fast and as inexpensively as possible,” says Gary Denman, Polycom's managing director for Australia and New Zealand. “Polycom’s goal is to make it possible for everyone to use video as their

preferred way to collaborate – easily, reliably, and securely – no matter where they are. Working with

service providers such as Telecom Group is instrumental to achieve this goal of video ubiquity.”
