Unlocking Value for the Remote Workforce with BlueJeans on Glass Enterprise Edition 2 and Google Pixel
In September, BlueJeans announced a preview of our new native meeting experience for Glass Enterprise Edition 2 from Google to deliver premium, hands-free video conferencing.
Today, we're excited to share that business customers will soon be able to purchase Glass Enterprise Edition 2 with BlueJeans preloaded* from Verizon for $1,139.99 to integrate glass wearables into the new ways of working. Additionally, for a limited time, customers can get up to $700 off Glass Enterprise Edition 2 when purchased with a Pixel 6.
According to a study by Quadrant Strategies, 80% of enterprises report having a need for innovative, hands-free solutions for front line workers to maintain safety and efficiency while in the field. Today’s announcement offers an immersive, premium and hands-free video conferencing experience that enables workers to work smarter, faster and safer. BlueJeans Meetings paired with Glass Enterprise Edition 2 and a Pixel 6’s 5G mobile hotspot can help boost productivity and facilitate collaboration for the remote workforce from anywhere**, in an easy-to-use way, to help businesses save time and improve the quality of their work.
By allowing a supervisor to see a remote employee’s vantage point virtually, rather than needing to see that perspective in-person, BlueJeans on Glass EE2 can help field workers get expert support without leaving the job site. BlueJeans with Glass EE2’s hands-free capabilities can also help enable remote field workers—such as warehouse workers, technicians, and engineers—to more efficiently fulfill customer orders or build complex machines. Businesses looking to get even more from their Google ecosystem can pair Glass Enterprise Edition 2 with a Google Pixel 6 and Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband connectivity leveraging C-Band spectrum^, using BlueJeans to maximize remote and field worker productivity and minimize error rates by utilizing visual guidance over hand-held solutions.
Furthermore, Glass can leverage Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network and real-time edge-compute capabilities through mobile hotspot connection for innovations that require low latency. For instance, developers could use the combined technologies to explore advanced computer vision with real-time virtual annotation and free-hand animation for apps serving collaborative-work, training or entertainment use cases.
Glass Enterprise Edition 2’s hands-free, lightweight design and Pixel 6’s battery-saving features offer a convenient, mobile connection and long-lasting video connection that allows workers to focus on doing their best work—all of which will be made possible with BlueJeans’ secure and convenient video conferencing app and Verizon’s 5G capabilities on America's most reliable network.
