Why Video is the Next Voice

Pal Jon Arnold has written a killer post about cloud based video, citing the rationale of clients Vidtel and Telesphere and why they have invested in the space, but also going more deeply into why, how come and what will make companies with their video calling heads in the clouds worth something. Jon was very thorough bringing to light all the players in the space but singling out Vidtel and Blue Jeans Network as the leading pure-play video cloud players.

Jon's comparison to the ShoreTel purchase of M5 Networks also is right on the mark as it communicates the value that video will bring to the market overall. Give Jon' authoritative post a close read....

P.S. I also enjoyed Jon's reference/inuendo/perspective and opinion about Vidtel copycat Blue Jeans Network. Vidtel was out first a good year or more ahead of Blue Jeans Network with cloud based video, something often overlooked by the Silicon Valley echo chamber, but Jon's steel trap memory didn't miss it.That's why Jon's insight about why they're different in approach, what Vidtel offers, and why Vidtel is positioned better is equally spot on.
