NextPlane’s new Voice and Video Collaboration Service is one of seven collaboration technologies that will be on display in Orlando next week.

Sunnyvale, Calif., March 13, 2015 – NextPlane, the leading provider of B2B UC Collaboration and Federation Services, has won the honor of presenting its new UC Exchange Voice and Video Collaboration Service at the Innovation Showcase at Enterprise Connect 2015 next week.

The showcase—which focuses on technologies that empower businesses to take collaboration to the next level—will take place March 16–March 19 in Orlando. NextPlane was one of seven companies selected to present their new collaborative platforms.

Redefining the possibilities of what unified communications (UC) can be, the NextPlane Voice and Video Collaboration Service allows users to harness the power of real-time cross-platform UC collaboration with their external business partners—functionality that was not available before now. The service enables users to seamlessly escalate chat sessions to voice or video calls with a simple click of the mouse or tap of the finger, regardless of underlying UC platforms. This allows them to approach collaboration with the medium that makes the most sense for the task at hand.

Leveraging the power of patented UC federation, WebRTC and video transcoding, NextPlane users don’t have to switch to a third-party service, download any clients or install any plug-ins to enjoy this seamless collaboration experience across diverse UC ecosystems.

“To be successful, today’s knowledge workers—who regularly collaborate with colleagues outside company walls—need to be able to communicate in real time with all of their business partners,” says Farzin Shahidi, founder and CEO of NextPlane. “To bridge that gap, we’ve built UC Exchange, the world’s largest and fastest-growing community of federation-ready enterprises. With our new Voice and Video Collaboration Service, NextPlane customers realize all of the promises of UC without encountering any of the difficulties traditionally associated with federating across disparate platforms.”

NextPlane uses Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) to encrypt voice and video media traffic. To further ensure security, messages aren’t stored and calls aren’t recorded. What’s more, all traffic flows through the company’s secure UC Exchange servers—not any belonging to third parties.

Representatives from NextPlane will be on hand in Orlando to showcase the company’s new Voice and Video Collaboration Service as well as talk about the future of B2B UC collaboration.
