report by The Economic Times
Bharti Airtel plans to soon launch its own branded video conferencing tool to take on the likes of Zoom, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams and JioMeet.
“Airtel is close to launching several enterprise-grade products including a unified videoconferencing tool very shortly,” a person aware of the matter told ET. Initially, Airtel plans to introduce the tool as a paid service for enterprises and businesses only. It will be rolled out to all customers depending on the response and demand from the users.
Like JioMeet, the tool will be available across devices and platforms- including mobiles and desktops. Airtel’s video conferencing tool is said to come with the latest AES 256 encryption and multiple layers of authentication for security.
Localisation and security will be the key features of Airtel’s video-calling tool that will differentiate it from the rival JioMeet. Highlighting that all the data of Airtel video conferencing service will be stored locally, the person added that “Airtel is focusing on high levels of security as the USP of the product, given the growing debate around cybersecurity as people work from home.”
