SoftBank partners with Polycom to launch infrastructure-based cloud video conferencing service

Japanese telecommunications firm SoftBank Corp. has launched PrimeMeeting,  a new cloud video conferencing service, which will utilise Polycom RealPresence Clariti  infrastructure software.

SoftBank’s new ‘PrimeMeeting’ service will strengthen the company’s offerings to customers looking for a flexible video collaboration solution that is simple to purchase and implement.

The service will enable users to access Polycom’s high definition collaboration experience as a cloud-based service from anywhere using any device, including video and mobile endpoints. In addition, it will support seamless integration for users of Microsoft Skype for Business and traditional video conferencing systems.

“We are happy to announce the launch of our “Cloud Video Conferencing Service, ‘PrimeMeeting’ provided in collaboration with Polycom. Customers who previously could not use a video conferencing service due to cost, location, or device issues will now be able to easily adopt this service,” said Sadahiro Sato, Senior Vice President and ICT Innovation Division Director of SoftBank Corp.

“By combining Polycom’s strong market share and brand value in the video conferencing market together with our new cloud service, we can enable more flexible and richer communication options to more of our customers.”

SoftBank’s new service is built on Polycom RealPresence Clariti, a simple, powerful, and cloud-ready collaboration infrastructure software with support for the broadest selection of collaboration ecosystems, together with the company’s own White Cloud ASPIRE, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
