Vidyo partners with Mitel in SMB push
Vidyo has joined forces with Mitel, a provider of business communications and collaboration software and services, to offer a solution that combines Vidyo communication products with Mitel's unified communications and collaboration platform.

The integrated solution was demonstrated at Mitel's Business Partner Conference, from June 19 – 21, in San Diego.

Ashish Gupta, Vidyo's CMO and SVP corporate development, said:"According to research conducted by VMware and Canalys, SMB adoption of virtualised solutions is expected to increase two-fold by 2014, positioning Mitel and Vidyo well in the market as we will deliver rich integrated applications on a common virtualization framework.

"The virtualized Mitel-Vidyo offering will give SMBs unprecedented choice, delivering unmatched quality, reach and savings to customers looking to deploy on-demand unified communications and visual collaboration solutions on their desktops, mobile devices and conference rooms at a fraction of the cost of legacy video conferencing solutions."

Stephen Beamish, vice president of marketing and business development at Mitel, said: "Delivering high-definition video conferencing that can provide an integrated collaboration experience with Mitel’s UC solution is a priority for our partners and customers looking to increase collaboration and efficiency.

"Vidyo delivers a virtualised video solution that meshes perfectly with our vision of an integrated UC platform and, when combined with Mitel UC, will provide our customers with the freedom to select high quality video applications without traditional limitations."
