Videxio Powers Optimus Cloud-based Video Collaboration Solution

Optimus has its eye on the MENA region with a new cloud-based video as a service offering. The company recently launched Maelys, a scalable managed video collaboration solution that is delivered as a service, making it a valuable addition to cloud computing portfolios.

The MENA area has shown a demand for better collaboration solutions to keep up with the pace of video and mobility adoption in the region, and value-added distributor (VAD) Optimus is hoping to seize on that opportunity. Maelys, which is powered by cloud video service provider Videxio, will initially be offered to select partners and customers, with broader availability coming soon.

The managed video service offers a variety of features to satisfy collaboration and communication needs. It includes endpoint subscription, which lets subscribers place and receive calls via a video unit. Unlimited video calling, a central directory and plug-and-play activation are also enabled, and Maelys also includes personal video accounts with support for BYOD, smart roaming and self-service registration.

Videxio is providing a worldwide network of points of presence (PoPs) and also powers the actual collaboration service, which may be activated on subscribers’ device of choice and is fully delivered via the cloud. The offering also enables virtual meeting rooms with the ability to collaborate with any user, on any device, from anywhere. That includes interoperability with Microsoft Lync and WebRTC as well as support for all standards-based video conferencing systems.

“Through Maelys powered services, Optimus is giving resellers and channel partners the ability to offer state-of-the-art cloud-based video services to their customers,” said Meera Kaul, managing director of Optimus. “It’s the most efficient way to make use of the cloud infrastructure, as anytime-anywhere access is vital to presence-based solutions. It will also make them more practical and affordable for smaller and mid-sized businesses that do not want to deploy and manage their own dedicated video server making the whole solution simpler.’’
