March 16, 2015, New York, NY – Collaboration Squared, a global conferencing and collaboration service provider, today announced its been selected for the Innovation Showcase at Enterprise Connect for their Ubiety Cloud Video Collaboration service which it will demonstrate at the event. Ubiety uniquely addresses the challenge many organizations face when it comes to the interoperability of video, web and phone conferencing.
“The Innovation Showcase is all about new companies with innovative products,” said David Maldow, CEO of Let’s Do Video and judge for the Innovation Showcase. “With Ubiety, Collaboration Squared is setting the bar high – I found the hybrid option particularly compelling as it offers bandwidth savings and security benefits for local (in house) calls, while still allowing for broad external communications via the cloud”
Collaboration Squared was selected for the Innovation Showcase for its innovative cloud video collaboration solution, unlimited participant models, flexible contracts and new on-premise to hybrid cloud options. The company was also recognized for its commitment to the environment and its donation ‘give back’ program. Collaboration Squared is one of seven chosen for this exclusive showcase, which will be held at Enterprise Connect in Orlando, Florida from March 16 to 19.
Ubiety is powered by the Acano platform and takes interoperability of video conferencing, web collaboration and phone conferencing to an unprecedented new level. Ubiety’s no minimum commit entry pricing offers accessibility to any business anywhere in the world. The contract flexibility, transparent pricing, simple user interface, ability to join from any device, video standard or endpoint also make Ubiety incredibly inviting for customers.
Exclusively for Enterprise Connect, Collaboration Squared will showcase its new public and private hybrid cloud options.
- Ubiety Public Cloud: The full interop cloud video-web-audio bridging service includes free unmetered global dial -in phone conferencing in 40+ countries. Unlimited participant and virtual meeting rooms options. OPEX + month-to-month contracts.
- Ubiety Public Hybrid Cloud: As above plus free VMWare based on-prem node for localizing all on-net traffic for WAN benefits and special point to point gateway call routing for Lync / Skype for Business to Vidconf endpoints. OPEX + free node + month-to-month contracts.
- Acano Private Cloud: Entirely customized Acano server designed to your exact specifications in our cloud incl firewall/SIP & H323 gateway/Lync edge/PBX/Global dial in/out telephony. OPEX.
- Acano Private Cloud with Hybrid Backup: For existing on-premise Acano customers that want an exact replication of their Acano server in the cloud for backup, overflow and linked cloud firewall/SIP & H323 gateway/Lync edge/PBX/Global dial- in/out telephony. OPEX.
For all hybrid options we can even manage and report on any legacy on-premise video bridge(s) a customer may have from manufacturers like Cisco/Codian and Polycom, which addresses overflow capacity and more importantly, on-premise and cloud bridge utilization reporting.
“Our Ubiety Public Cloud service is delivering the absolute highest quality video available in the market today” said Daryl Hutchings, CEO of Collaboration Squared. “However large customers that have internal global QoS managed networks should not have to go out to the internet for every call leg, this is why we developed the public hybrid cloud to put free on-premise nodes, meaning on-net calls are flawless quality, external participants connect to the public cloud and most importantly each participant still maintains all the cool independant layout controls unlike other cascade options.”
“We first reviewed Ubiety back in September 2014 and were impressed with the quality and scale of their global cloud Acano solution,” said Ira Weinstein, Senior Analyst and Partner at collaboration industry analysts Wainhouse Research. “Adding the capability for on-premise hybrids for call quality, call routing, plus completely customized backup clouds for existing on-premise Acano customers proves Collaboration Squared is in tune with the requirements of today’s large enterprise customers.”
We are seeing increasing demand for hybrid deployments to support video quality, disaster recovery and overflow,” said Larry Satterfield, Global VP of Sales at Acano. “Collaboration Squared is a key partner of Acano’s. As acloud specialist, they provide a global cloud platform that’s flexible, cost effective and scalable. We look forward to seeing Ubiety at Enterprise Connect and growing our partnership.”
