BT Conferencing has announced it will expand its cloud-based videoconferencing service so that a greater number of devices can be used by global businesses. More than 50,000 conferencing sites around the world are expected to benefit from full global interoperability, bosses at the firm have said.

Organisations can now utilise a range of high definition endpoints, including web cameras, telepresence suites, desktop units and mobile devices. This means video meetings can be held using a mix of legacy and new equipment at the same time. Chief executive officer at BT Conferencing Richard Lowe believes the upgrade will enable firms to significantly slash their travel bills, as more conferences can be staged online.

"By extending the reach, quality, and effectiveness of communications, we are offering a real alternative to how organisations collaborate with colleagues, customers, suppliers, and partners," he remarked. A number of network providers have been introducing new technology with the intention of promoting flexible working, including O2, which recently launched its Joined Up People offering aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises.
