Tata Communications' new provider sets sights on ANZ market

02 Oct 2013

Collaboration service provider Arkadin has been appointed an official APAC provider of Tata Communications, starting with an ANZ rollout.

Terms of the deal will see Arkadin launch the company's recently released jamvee conferencing, an on-demand unified communication service which allows business video meetings on any device.

Delivered through the world’s only fibre optic cable ring around the globe, Serge Genetet, Managing Director and EVP, Arkadin Asia Pacific, says:

“With demand for video conferencing exploding, we’re confident jamvee will be popular with enterprises that need a simple on-demand service with business-grade quality that also offers the flexibility to use existing video equipment.

"We’re thrilled to partner with Tata Communications and certain the alliance will help strengthen our value proposition for providing customers with advanced collaboration and unified communications solutions.”

The jamvee software application is compatible with Windows, OSX software-based devices, iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

Users of Lync and other video conferencing software, as well as those with access to standard video conferencing systems such as Telepresence, can also meet using jamvee.

Anthony Bartolo, Senior Vice president, Unified Communications & Collaboration, Tata Communications says: “Our mission is to create the world’s richest open video ecosystem.

"The partnership with Arkadin enforces this strategy which will enable true unified communication for enterprises operating in today’s mobile, always-on and global environment.

"Using jamvee is as easy as making an audio conferencing call and together with Arkadin’s expertise in delivering collaboration services with dedicated local-language teams, we will enable more businesses to experience the benefit that true video collaboration brings.”

The partnership agreement with Arkadin will first roll-out in Australia and New Zealand followed by the rest of the Asia Pacific region.
