Synetix Solutions, a premier provider of storage, security and infrastructure, recently entered into a partnership with UCi2i, a global and vendor agnostic Video Managed Services Provider.

This partnership is based on research that Synetix did with a segment of its customer base, which looked at business drivers and the types of traffic that was flowing across the network.

Officials said that with the help of this partnership, Synetix will be able to meet the growing demand for reliable video conferencing capabilities without requiring significant CAPEX investment.

In a statement, Rick Gray, managing director at Synetix Solutions, said: “Our own tests and feedback from customers suggested that flexibility and reducing CAPEX were the two biggest considerations when deploying video conferencing. Some users felt they needed dedicated rooms but the majority wanted to use ad-hoc video using cameras within tablets, laptops or portable units. However, an overriding requirement was the ability to control video for security and to ensure network QoS.”

With the help of UCi2i, Synetix will now be able to offer true fixed priced, monthly subscription based Virtual Meeting Rooms and point-to-point video communication service plans for meeting room systems, desktops, mobile devices and dedicated telepresence rooms.

UCi2i is simple to deploy and its architecture allows Synetix to meet the bandwidth and deployment requirements of the widest set of customers, without requiring complex network infrastructure upgrades.

 “Synetix is a great partner for UCi2i, together we offer customers a strong design and integration solution, providing businesses of all shapes and sizes with an all-in-one, affordable and HD quality hosted video conferencing service that’s easy to use and simple to buy”, Michael Grant, founder and Group Operations director of UCi2i added.

In related TMC (News - Alert) news, UCi2i signed a partnership agreement with Comstor (News - Alert), Westcon Group’s business unit responsible for the global distribution of Cisco offerings, to deliver a new suite of video conferencing managed services to customers.

How often have you had a teleconference where—because of audio-related issues—you had difficulty in conducting an important meeting? Or in some cases, not even being able to make a clear connection at all? Curtiss Singleton, Director of Sales for the Americas at Revolabs, Inc., discusses conferencing solutions that not only provide unmatched audio quality, but ones that also “cut the cord”—giving you the freedom to move around the workspace. Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with JP Carney, President and CEO of Revolabs, about the company, the importance of audio quality in UC, the compatibility of their products with various UC platforms, and their acquisition by Yamaha after one year. They discuss how clear audio for teleconferencing is the core element of true collaboration.
