InterCall finds fit with Blue Jeans


Two significant players in the conferencing world are getting together.

Blue Jeans Network, the service created to provide interoperability of room-based, desktop and mobile videoconferencing systems, now integrates with the widely used Reservationless-Plus audioconferencing service from InterCall.

Reservationless-Plus is one of the largest proprietary IP-based conferencing systems in the world, with more than 400,000 access ports.

The integration between the two systems makes it possible to send the same invitation to participants whether they are going to dial in or use an IP-connected device. It also provides additional controls, including a list of participants, active talkers and mute/un-mute capabilities.

"People are interested in using video to improve collaboration, and they want a simpler way to connect," said, Rob Bellmar, Senior Vice President of Conferencing and Collaboration for InterCall.

"Integrating our Reservationless-Plus and the Blue Jeans services gives hosts a simple way to start meetings on-the-fly, while participants can easily click-to-join from anywhere on any device, and experience the high quality audio and video conferencing that they expect."

Krish Ramakrishnan, CEO of Blue Jeans Network said "The combination of Blue Jeans Network's rapid growth in the video conferencing market along with InterCall's global presence and strength in the audio conferencing industry is creating an unstoppable force."

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
