SimpleSignal, a cloud-based Unified Communications and Collaboration provider announced today that they are bringing mobile enterprise video conferencing to Apple's iPhone, iPad, iTouch and Android mobile devices. Their cross-platform video phone compatibility works across a variety of mobile, desktop and telepresence/video-enabled devices, via a WiFi connection or a 3G/4G network.
I've said in the past that I predict Apple iPads (& Android tablets) will be your next enterprise desktop phone because of their UC and video phone capabilities. SimpleSignal also believes tablets and other mobile devices will be game changers when it comes to UC. Hookflash is another interesting player in the mobile UC space.
According to SimpleSignal, "The seamless integration of iOS and Android operating systems into SimpleSignal's Unified Communications platform, coupled with the mobile video capabilities of these devices, means that advanced enterprise communications capabilities are no longer confined to the desktop."
"This new mobile video service is the biggest breakthrough in SimpleSignal history," said Dave Gilbert, CEO of SimpleSignal. "It's revolutionary to experience video conferencing with our customers connecting over their own mobile devices, as well as a variety of desktop and teleconferencing video equipment including Polycom, Tandberg, Cisco, InFocus, LifeSize and more."
Hundreds of advanced calling features available at the mobile device level include:
- One number for everything, including text/SMS
- Instant video phone calls without a bridge
- Multi-point video conferencing
- Four-digit dialing between extensions
- Swap calls between mobile and desktop phones
- Call recording
"This is a killer app for the way businesses are being built in today's economy. No longer is business about a specific location," continued Gilbert. "Companies are being built virtually with no limitations on geographic location. It's now really more about unifying your network. Adding iPads, iPhones and Android devices through this new mobile video application is the final piece in the puzzle to doing just that."
