For several years now, video conferencing has remained a challenging technology to deploy, use, and manage for large corporations. Small and mid-sized businesses that want to use video collaboration have often been restrained by lack of financial wherewithal and internal IT resources. Expensive endpoints and infrastructure, complex management, and lack of interoperability have largely made video conferencing a loosely connected technology island with adoption limited to deep-pocketed, large organizations.
The next generation of cloud-based services is addressing the complexity and cost issues. Cloud video conferencing services are enabling pervasive video by allowing people to connect with each other any time, from any place, over any video-enabled device -- conference rooms, desktops or mobile devices.
