BT and Cisco launch unified comms service
Cisco has said that together, the two companies are launching a scalable, business-grade, global hosted IP telephony service, which allows businesses to reduce upfront investment costs whilst accelerating the adoption of UC on a global scale.
BT is engaging closely with Cisco services to build the underlying virtualized infrastructure for service delivery.
Cisco has also said that the hosted IP telephony service allows businesses to bring converged voice, mobile and data services to every desktop in their organization, using both the companies cloud computing-based technologies.
Cisco has added that companies that are tightly managing their capital expenditure will be able to take a first step into converged communications by consuming their IP telephony, voicemail, conferencing and unified messaging technologies on a utility-based, per-user pricing model.
Chris Dedicoat, president of Europe at Cisco, said: “Cisco and BT are deepening our established collaboration today to introduce a truly transformational unified communications solution delivered through the cloud at a compelling price point. We believe this new hosted offering will help accelerate our combined ability to bring the benefits of unified communications to more customers globally.”
