Verizon has just announced that they have partnered with FuzeBox, and will be featuring Fuze Meeting as part of the BSA (Business Solutions Alliance) program. If you're unfamiliar with Fuze Meeting, it's an online collaboration tool that provides virtual meetings via computers, tablets, and smartphones. As Michael Toto, director, Enterprise and Government Partnerships at Verizon Wireless says:
As tablets and mobile devices continue to advance their capabilities and get adopted as de facto tools in the business environment, video collaboration is becoming mainstream for diagnostics, analysis, transactions and many other drivers that companies rely on. FuzeBox is delivering a perfect meeting place for the two technologies, offering high-quality, user-friendly solutions to a wide range of industries and customers, and the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network ties them all together.
And he's right. With new high-speed cellular data networks come great ways to be even more productive on connected devices. With rising fuel and travel costs, many businesses have turned to online meetings instead of flying folks cross-country to work together. Here at Android Central, we conduct most of our internal business this way, and it's high time that mobile gets in on the action.
Be aware though, this isn't a tool for the average consumer. A quick look at the Fuze Meeting pricing page shows that this tech doesn't come cheaply. But it's still far more cost effective than the alternative, and should be a heavy hitter for Verizon's BSA. We have the full press release after the break, and you can learn more at the link below.

Amazon Echo Frames review: Alexa comes for your eyes and ears
When I reviewed the Amazon Echo Buds in late 2019, I commented that they were a solid first attempt to help get Alexa out of the house and make her more useful on the go.
