Huawei partners with StarLeaf on UC OpenCloud service to deliver integrated cloud video room solution
LONDON––StarLeaf, the leading cloud video conferencing and calling provider, and Huawei, the leading global information and communications technology solution provider, have cemented their relationship with an agreement to deliver a joint and tightly integrated solution that combines StarLeaf UC OpenCloud and Huawei’s video room systems.
The tight integration, between Huawei’s TE Series of video meeting room hardware and the StarLeaf UC OpenCloud, offers users complete and seamless interoperability between their Huawei system and all other video systems, including Skype for Business. In addition, and unlike any other cloud service, UC OpenCloud gives Huawei users the capability to join scheduled Skype Meetings. As well as unlimited direct calling between all hardware and software endpoints, users will also benefit from multiparty scheduled conferencing for up to 50 participants.
“The UC OpenCloud eco system is pivotal for the industry and end users – it’s these new relationships, with a shared and fresh perspective, that will bring about change for the good,” said Mark Loney, CEO StarLeaf. “The combination of our joint technical excellence, innovation and global reach, will ultimately democratize video, to make it truly accessible and affordable for all businesses.”
Scaling video collaboration into huddle spaces can be an expensive business when considering the IT costs of installation and on-going system and user management. With the StarLeaf UC OpenCloud, Huawei’s TE Series video endpoints will be set-up automatically and ready for use in minutes, and administered from a central management platform – reducing initial and on-going costs. The UC OpenCloud also ensures that business users have complete interoperability with any existing meeting room or desktop video system, which means that the enterprise can also take advantage of Huawei’s affordable and elegant TE Series, to bolster and scale video on a global basis.
“Together with StarLeaf we developed the joint cloud based video room solution, which will offer our customers a more efficient video conference solution with the option of interoperability with Skype for Business,” said Wang Xiangjiong, General Manager of Huawei Videoconferencing. “The joint solution, is pitched perfectly for businesses that need an easy to deploy and manage, highly portable huddle room solution. Which will, at the same time, provide better choice for both of our partners.”
