SimpleSignal, a leading cloud-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) provider for business, and Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), today announced a strategic agreement to provide Video-as-a-Service (VaaS) offerings by combining the Polycom RealPresence Platform software infrastructure with SimpleSignal's cloud-based unified communications platform. By powering its new SimpleMeetup Video service with the RealPresence Platform - the most comprehensive and interoperable software infrastructure for universal video collaboration - SimpleSignal is taking advantage of Polycom's broad open standards-based inoperability to make it possible for employees, partners, and customers to collaborate face-to-face across multiple platforms and devices without worrying about whether the service and systems will work together.

"Collaboration is becoming one of the most common services in the cloud, and the Polycom RealPresence Platform is the software infrastructure of choice for a growing number of service providers offering Video-as-a-Service"

"We believe video is the new voice when it comes to effective communication and collaboration," said Dave Gilbert, CEO of SimpleSignal. "Face-to-face communication is natural, while blind phone conversations are not. Video communication changes everything whether it's a one-on-one conversation or a video conference with a large team. The combination of Polycom's RealPresence Platform software infrastructure and SimpleSignal's cloud can now make this experience simple, practical and affordable for companies of all sizes."

"Collaboration is becoming one of the most common services in the cloud, and the Polycom RealPresence Platform is the software infrastructure of choice for a growing number of service providers offering Video-as-a-Service," said Gary Testa, Global Vice President, Cloud and Service Providers at Polycom. "Combining Polycom's secure, reliable, and highly scalable software infrastructure with SimpleSignal's service offers low operating costs, reliable access, and ease-of-use. With the Polycom RealPresence Platform, SimpleSignal can connect virtually any device, whether standards-based or proprietary, resulting in powerful ROI for customers."

SimpleMeetup Video, powered by Polycom, is SimpleSignal's anytime, on-demand, HD-quality video as a service offering for two to 100 participants. The cloud-delivered video service complements SimpleSignal's existing phone service and can be used on its own or in conjunction with the phone service. Service plans start at $199 per month per virtual meeting room, with no per-minute or per-user charges and no on-premises MCU required. Users simply dial into their own video conference bridge to begin a meeting.
