MegaConference is a subscription-based video conferencing service, also known as video-as-a-service (VaaS), designed to deliver a face-to-face communication solution in a pay-as-you-use model to businesses, allowing for more efficient collaboration anywhere and anytime. 
 
The MegaConference service is powered by the Polycom’s RealPresence Platform, the most comprehensive and interoperable software infrastructure for universal video collaboration, providing the carrier-grade scalability, reliability, availability, and security required for service providers to deliver VaaS offerings to SMBs and enterprises.
 
Video collaboration is taking off in countries throughout Asia, and in emerging markets such as Vietnam. A recent Forrester survey found that 55% of APAC businesses already use video conferencing, and 84% of firms in APAC have either implemented video or plan to within the next year.
 
The new MegaConference offering will provide Vietnam organizations with a secure, high-quality, reliable, flexible and cost-effective collaboration solution to support and drive productivity and efficiencies in day-to-day business operations.
 
MegaConference is available in four levels of service offerings, tailored to address the diversified needs of organizations at any scale and in any industry, including government, healthcare, education, hospitality and enterprises. The MegaConference service was originally piloted by 20 businesses in December 2011.
 
Vietnam Post & Telecommunication (VNPT) announced the launch of MegaConference, a new cloud-delivered video conferencing service for businesses, in collaboration with Polycom.
