Wainhouse Research Study Compares 70+ Video Conferencing Service Providers

New research document provides detailed information about the features, functions, and subscription models of VCaaS providers around the world.

BOSTON, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wainhouse Research (WR), the premiere analyst firm focused on unified communications and collaboration, announces the release of a comparison matrix focused on video conferencing as a service (VCaaS) offerings.  This document, available as part of a WR subscription program or for separate purchase, provides detailed information about the features, functions, and subscription options available from more than 70 providers around the world.

"Video conferencing service offerings eliminate many of the barriers associated with the wide-spread use of video conferencing within an enterprise," reports Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research, and the primary author of this study.  "Things are happening very quickly in this space, and the number of solutions available has grown drastically in recent quarters.  For example, one-third of the services covered in this matrix did not exist 15 months ago, and many of them are based on technology platforms that were not available until 2013."

This pace of innovation and change has made it difficult for end-users and others to understand the VCaaS market.  This matrix cuts through the confusion and provides a side-by-side comparison of 50+ VCaaS features.

This study includes coverage of both large and small service providers including some of the most well-known players in the space such as 8x8, AVI-SPL, Blue Jeans, BT Conferencing, Cisco Systems, DEKOM AG, Dimension Data, Fuze, Glowpoint, Google, IVCi, Logicalis, Mitel, PGI, Polycom, Providea, Tata, Vantage Systems, Verizon, Video Guidance, Viju, Whitlock, and Yorktel.  A full list of the 70+ service providers included in the matrix is available at http://www.wainhouse.com/VCaaS-Matrix.

This comparison matrix is now the definitive coverage document for video conferencing service offerings and will be of interest to a wide range of service providers, integrators, and end-user customers.  For end-users, this matrix provides the information needed to identify VC service offerings that address their requirements.  For service providers selling VC services, this document allows them to benchmark their functionality and pricing against competing providers.  For channel partners or others seeking to launch service offerings, this document highlights a wide range of third-party offerings that can be resold or white labeled. 

The "Video Conferencing as a Service (VCaaS) Comparison Matrix" is but one of the hundreds of conferencing, collaboration, and UC focused content items available from Wainhouse Research.
