Everything about Airtel BlueJeans
Airtel BlueJeans comes with enterprise-grade security and includes features like real-time meetings analytics and live meeting controls. According to OnlyTech, users will also get an option to call mobile phones starting at 50 paise per call. The Airtel Audio Bridge integration will enable calling services for users.
The software will work across desktop and mobile platforms. Apart from the dedicated apps, users will also be able to access the service using its web interface and virtual desktop infrastructures based on SIP or H.323 standards.
Airtel will offer its customers local support alongside a dedicated Command Center for administrators, with which customers can get insights on meeting performance, network conditions, and user-focussed return on investment (RoI).
All of the data collected by the company will be hosted locally in the country. Airtel claims that all of the video, audio, and content transmission will be secured with AES-256 GCM encryption. All meetings will have to go through a two-step authentication process.
Note: You can also get a BlueJeans subscription from the company itself. However, it will not include any of the additional features being added by Airtel.
