Verizon and Zoom have announced a partnership to offer customers a new Unified Communications solution. The new solution is intended to improve cooperation between organisations.

According to Shawn Hakl, senior vice president of Business Products at Verizon, companies around the world are becoming increasingly dependent on tools and solutions that are flexible, intuitive and reliable. By adding Zoom to our portfolio of collaboration partners, our business customers have access to technology that delivers both ease of use and performance.

Zoom platform becomes cloud service

As part of the partnership, the Zoom Unified Communications platform has become available as a cloud service to all Verizon business customers. Via Call-in Toll-/Toll Free and Call-me numbers it is possible to reach more than fifty countries.

Users can also participate in Zoom meetings free of charge via a Verizon Wireless phone or Voice-over-IP (VoIP) phone. Users can also use the audio part of a Zoom conference free of charge via VoIP. The advantage is that everything is managed by Verizon, which means that no personnel or time needs to be freed up for this purpose.

The two companies have made their new solution available worldwide. Verizon experts have also been made available for training, user adoption, and technical support.

Updates

In March of this year, Zoom announced various functions for all its products. For example, Zoom Phone made it possible to easily convert calls to video conferences, and IT admins made it easier to roll out devices within their organisation. From the third quarter of this year, Zoom Meetings will receive real-time, automatic transcriptions. It is also possible to switch to a different audio channel with a different translator. Meetings also makes notes immediately available from the third quarter onwards.

Finally, Zoom Rooms gets a new soundbar in the form of Creston Flex B, which improves audio and video quality. There’s also a 65-inch interactive whiteboard called Aver EP65, which includes all the software configurations and components that allow Zoom Room to run out-of-the-box. Logitech Solutions offers various applications, including a camera and a remote control for the solution.
