Arkadin Launches New Digital Meeting Solution in Asia to Address Market Demand for Simplicity and Affordability

'ArkadinVision' Connects People on Video Regardless of Technology for Greater Flexibility in Enterprise Meeting Solutions

SINGAPORE, March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Arkadin, an NTT Communications company and market leader in cloud Unified Communications and Collaboration services, announces ArkadinVision, a digital meeting solution that seamlessly connects people for a unified meeting experience. The new cloud-based service, being launched in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand and India, addresses market demand for simpler, more streamlined collaboration solutions that connect conference attendees across diverse endpoints, and while on the move, for more productive virtual meetings.

ArkadinVision reflects trends underway in the market that are driving the need for instant connectivity between different technologies, platforms and mobility applications. The service bridges the more restrictive, traditional approach to collaboration, with a unified solution that maximises technology investments while removing barriers to communications. It is powered by Pexip's Infinity meeting platform which seamlessly ties together communication tools for simple deployments and unmatched flexibility and scalability.

"ArkadinVision is well positioned to support an enterprise at any stage of the UC journey -- acting as a bridge between conferencing to UC and supporting several common use-cases and configurations," says William Haskins, senior analyst and partner, Wainhouse Research. "By integrating elements of their distributed collaboration platform with Pexip's Infinity platform, ArkadinVision provides a good combination of quality, flexibility, and interoperability, all served from the company's proven and trusted cloud infrastructure."

Meetings Made Simple: Collaboration has never been easier
According to Sean Kwek, Arkadin's Managing Director, APAC & Japan, ArkadinVision will appeal to organisations requiring maximum leverage of UC and video infrastructure investments and greater workforce agility. "We are responding to customer needs for a simple, unified solution that integrates web and video for highly mobile workforces that require more flexibility to be able to collaborate from wherever they are. ArkadinVision is purpose-built to meet this need. In addition to workplace productivity and efficiency advantages, the affordable license-based model will deliver tangible bottom-line benefits."

The digital meeting solution provides flexibility to meet from any location or device -- including web browsers, video room systems, mobile apps and Skype for Business. It offers full interoperability for participants to join a meeting from video room systems and Skype for Business at no additional cost.

Polycom partnership delivers benefits for collaborating in huddle rooms
With the increasing popularity of huddle rooms, Arkadin is partnering with Polycom to provide innovative packages that combine ArkadinVision with Polycom's enterprise-grade HD video conferencing solutions for cost-effective collaboration experiences suited to enterprise workspaces. 

Commenting on the partnership with Arkadin, Shirish Joshi, APAC Channels Director for Polycom said: "As a leader in the collaboration space, Polycom hears from customers every day about the importance of connecting employees from wherever they may be into a collaborative environment. We are excited about our new partnership with Arkadin which aligns with our strategy to strengthen our cloud-based ecosystem while delivering more choice and more flexibility."

Joshi continues: "As ArkadinVision becomes available throughout Asia, Polycom customers can enhance the collaboration and productivity of their teams as this new "click to join" capability takes them straight into Polycom's premium meeting room experience."
