Mobile operator Bharti Airtel has partnered with US telecom company Verizon to launch video conferencing platform Airtel BlueJeans. Airtel’s app will rival Reliance Industries’ Geomet and Zoom.
However, Geomet is available to both enterprises and customers, while Airtel’s feature is currently only available to enterprise customers. In addition to Geomet, Airtel is also set to compete with other video conferencing services in addition to Blues Zoom, Cisco Webex, Google Meet and Microsoft Teams.
‘Bluejins are a safe platform’
Gopal Vitthal, Chief Executive Officer (India and South Asia), Bharti Airtel, made the remarks at a conference here on Tuesday. “Airtel Blues is a secure platform,” he said. We are committed to the privacy of each user. These platforms are very easy to use. The company is also considering packaging the facility for a smaller company. The service can also be connected to broadband at home.
“Data will be hosted in India,” Gopal said. This service will be provided free of cost for the first three months. The user will then have to pay a charge for this service.
Hans Westberg, Verizon’s chief executive officer, said there was a need for high-quality video conferencing and customer security services around the world. We are proud to partner with Airtel to help Indian organizations with our world class communication product in this work from home time.
