Vidtel and ZTE Bring Platform-Agnostic Video Conferencing to Small and Medium Enterprises in North America

LAS VEGAS, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Vidtel and ZTE USA today announced a co-marketing agreement to bring Vidtel's cloud-based MeetMe video conferencing service to ZTE's hardware and software-based endpoints including the T800, T700, and T100. The bundling gives ZTE USA resellers in North America a new cloud-based, turnkey solution for targeting the underserved small and medium enterprises (SMEs). It also effectively eliminates the cost and complexity barriers that prevent most SMEs from using video conferencing. SME customers will now be able to conduct video conferences across platforms, without the need for costly bridges and exchange services.
As the world's fifth largest telecom equipment provider globally, ZTE has shipped over 100,000 video conferencing endpoints to date. In particular, the T700 model is a high-definition video conference terminal that is designed to meet the needs of enterprise-level customers. It is easy to deploy in the meeting room and supports 1080p definition and broadband audio. The combination of ZTE's exceptional hardware offering and Vidtel's MeetMe video conference service offers resellers and their SME customers several benefits: With Vidtel MeetMe, ZTE users now can communicate with participants who are using any other brand of H.323 or SIP video conferencing platform, including Cisco/Tandberg, InFocus, LifeSize and Polycom. This interoperability maximizes ZTE products' ROI by freeing SMEs from the limitation of not being able to connect to different vendors' video conferencing systems.
