Next up, Arkadin, a NTT Communications company, announced the launch of its new solution, Arkadin Vision, in Latin America. According to the announcement, Arkadin Vision is a digital meeting space that seamlessly connects audio, Web and video for a unified meeting experience. Given how disjointed meetings can be as presenters try to get everything in order, this will be a welcome change to operations. Full details are HERE.

Meanwhile, Evolve IP announced this week that BCM One will begin offering the company’s complete suite of integrated cloud solutions. The technology solutions provider will now be offering Evolve IP’s disaster recovery; contact centers; unified communications/business collaboration, desktop services and infrastructure as a service.
