DOYLESTOWN, Pa. and OSLO, Norway, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- KBZ, an award-winning Cisco Authorized Distributor specializing in Collaboration, Unified Communications and TelePresence, and MNS, provider of the world's largest TelePresence cloud, today announced that KBZ enhances its ZCloud service offering by including MNS' VideoRoaming Cloud. 

The new ZCloud REN (Roaming Enabled Network) service, powered by MNS, enables Cisco TelePresence customers with on-premise infrastructure to make off-net TelePresence calls to any customer, partner, or supplier with a predictable high quality backed by the industry's best Service Level Agreement.

"We are very excited about our new ZCloud REN offering as Cisco TelePresence customers with on-premise infrastructure may now get a first class experience when calling arbitrary destinations outside their corporate networks," said Kyle Zorzi, vice president of KBZ.

"We are honored to partner with KBZ and deliver our VideoRoaming service to their partners and end customers," said Hans Fredrik Johansen, CEO of MNS. "With ZCloud REN, TelePresence users avoid the typical pitfalls of traditional video cloud services; high latency and packet loss due to congestions and sub-optimal routing over the Internet."

ZCloud REN is ideal for the following use scenarios:

  • Providing predictable high quality when calling B2B and B2C
  • Offloading congested corporate networks by using the affordable ZCloud REN service

ZCloud REN service is offered on a monthly subscription basis and can easily be activated in Cisco's provisioning infrastructure. Cisco Reseller Partners interested in offering this service to their customers may contact KBZ at info@kbz.com for more information.
