Lifesize Extends Global Network With Point-of-Presence at IBM Softlayer Melbourne Data Centre

The Lifesize PoP supplies customers with dedicated 10Gbs interconnect bandwidth from Telstra

January 12, 2015, Sydney, Australia – Lifesize, a division of Logitech (NASDAQ: LOGI) (SIX: LOGN), today announced it’s first Point-of-Presence in Australia within the IBM Softlayer Melbourne data centre.

The Lifesize PoP supplies customers with dedicated 10Gbs interconnect bandwidth from Telstra and enables Lifesize customers to experience the best possible video collaboration experience possible.

At the same time, the new Melbourne PoP will support users deploying the new Lifesize Cloud service, the first and only service that provides a connected experience to anyone using smartphones, tablets, laptops and especially conference rooms. Lifesize Cloud is delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and is for organisations that want business-class video collaboration without taxing their budget or IT resources.

Unlike competitive offerings, including costly traditional on-premise video solutions, free consumer applications, and “meet-me” Web and video services, Lifesize Cloud enables natural communication instantly or scheduled and is purpose-built for organisations of all sizes to implement an affordable, simple and scalable video conferencing solution with little to no need for IT involvement.

“Lifesize delivers a way to completely, cost effectively and efficiently enable every person in your company with the highest quality video collaboration,” Andreas Wienold, Vice President of International, Lifesize. “The combination of Lifesize Cloud and IBM Softlayer Melbourne PoP enhances our ability to deliver an exception customer experience.”
