SPIRIT DSP, the world's top voice and video over IP engines provider, on Monday said that Russia's national telecommunications operator Rostelecom has licensed the company's VideoMost.com software to provide OTT (Over the Top) multipoint videoconferencing service to its corporate customers under its own brand.
Rostelecom provides integrated telecom solutions including local and intra zone telephone services, international long distance and domestic long distance services, mobile voice, data, broadband Internet access and pay TV services to 43 million subscribers across Russia, and has a nation wide LTE license.
“Implementation of our new service was determined by increasing demand for cloud based videoconferencing," said a representative from Rostelecom. "One of the main advantages of this service is its ability to provide HD video quality while allowing our clients to save on purchasing and maintenance of expensive videoconferencing solutions, since the corporate videoconferencing system organization and technical support will be carried out using a service platform at Rostelecom's data center.”
"By white labeling VideoMost web video conferencing software, Rostelecom can generate new revenue and increase customer satisfaction with their own branded web videoconferencing offering, as well as lower operating costs and reduce churn,” said SPIRIT's Head of Telco Relationships Alex Zakharov. "Through licensing the VideoMost software and building its own videoconferencing service that's integrated with its billing system, Rostelecom can now effectively and aggressively compete against OTT VVoIP providers." Rostelecom's web videoconferencing service is priced at $20 per month for unlimited use.
VideoMost is an award winning massively multipoint web based videoconferencing software only product, enabling telecom carriers, service/SaaS providers and enterprises to deliver a self branded videoconferencing service from the cloud or with on premise installation.
