StarLeaf unveils a brand-neutral communications platform intended for industry partners
London, UK. June 2 2016: StarLeaf, the leading cloud video conferencing and calling provider, announced UC OpenCloud – a brand-neutral version of its advanced communications platform. UC OpenCloud is exclusively available to third-party solution providers and video endpoint manufacturers who wish to extend their product portfolio with a ready-made Video Conferencing as a Service (VCaaS) solution.
UC OpenCloud is available today and allows any qualifying partner to rapidly adopt its cloud calling and conferencing services as their own. Along with a comprehensive set of standard features, partners and their customers also benefit from a reliable, secure, fully redundant global platform, with centralized management, and a free software client for all to use.
As part of this launch, StarLeaf has announced a number of UC OpenCloud partners, including Tata Communications, as well as endpoint manufacturers Yealink, Tely and Grandstream.
“We have the most advanced communications cloud available today, and it has unlimited capacity to serve the very largest, right down to the smallest of businesses,” said Mark Loney, CEO StarLeaf. “It’s been a long held vision of ours to create a cloud partner ecosystem. With this version of our cloud we are doing just that – it gives us endless partnership opportunities, where we serve more users, and our partners increase their market share.”
UC OpenCloud is an advanced platform that offers a rich communications environment and allows users to make and receive point-to-point video calls, as well as schedule and join video conferences. It is unique in its ability to deliver universal connectivity, allowing users of any video equipment to directly call any one else on any other video system. In this way a video system registered to the UC OpenCloud can call any user of Microsoft Skype for Business, Polycom, Lifesize, Cisco, Avaya etc. This far reaching interoperability is fundamental to the longevity of an existing video installation, which may currently only be served by an aging infrastructure and restricted in its calling capabilities. In addition to this freedom, the UC OpenCloud offers a secure, fully redundant and reliable environment that can easily replace costly and complex infrastructure.
