ZTE’s M900 offers the highest value conferencing platform in the industry at $195 per port. However, at 128 ports, small businesses may not be able to justify the cost ($25K), nor do they need 128 ports. ZTE has partnered with Vidtel to create a perfect solution for small enterprises. Vidtel’s cloud based MeetMe video conferencing service is now available for use with ZTE's hardware and software-based endpoints. Applicable products include ZTE’s T800, T700, and T100. The partnership allows small firms to utilize the ZTE video conference hardware and software, without an additional hardware purchase or monthly payments. A three-year agreement with Vidtel for eight endpoints in a Vidtel meeting room is approximately $10K and additional ports can be added at any time.
Vidtel provides an exceptional any-to-any service. That is, users can engage in conferences across different platforms, without the need for expensive bridges and exchange services. Connections can be made with businesses using any other brand of H.323 or SIP video conferencing platform, including Cisco/Tandberg, InFocus, LifeSize, Polycom, Skype, and Google Talk.
When David Jackson, Strategic Accounts Manager at TK6, was asked about the Vidtel and ZTE partnership, he said, “ZTE and Vidtel have teamed up so that small and medium enterprise users can, from a cost, ease-of-use, and interoperability standpoint conduct effective video conferences.”
