Cloud-based video conferencing is a great way for small to medium sized businesses to get involved with multi-point video conferencing.
These businesses do not need to purchase expensive infrastructure components, nor do they need the support personnel needed to run that infrastructure. Simply sign up for a relatively inexpensive cloud-based service and meet with your clients, colleagues, friends, and family. The quality is great and the services are on 24 x 7.
