AVST's CX-E UC Platform Supports Hybrid UC Cloud

January 29, 2013

There’s some new news from Applied Voice & Speech Technologies, Inc. (AVST (News - Alert)), with the latest deployment of its CX-E UC platform. This edition continues its support for hybrid UC cloud deployments, providing improved integration with Microsoft (News - Alert) Office 365.

With AVST’s CX-E UC platform, enterprise customers have access to a scalable enterprise class architecture, supporting vital initiatives such as centralization, disaster recovery, virtualization support and more.

It provides one of the most interoperable UC solutions on the market, which lets enterprises use and unify their existing infrastructure and investments, while connecting to the cloud and providing a hybrid UC configuration.

While UC deployments today tend to be primary based on a private cloud, there’s been a trend toward hybrid deployments of UC and enterprise voice that use both cloud- and premises-based solutions.

As such, this version of CX-E was built with that in mind, using its resilient unified communications architecture and its interoperability capabilities to connect with cloud-based services such as Microsoft Office 365.

"2013 is the year of the hybrid UC cloud," said Tom Minifie (News - Alert), chief technology officer at AVST. "Our customers are migrating from an on-premise Exchange Server email environment to Office 365 in the cloud. Seattle Pacific University is one example of this. The world class interoperability of AVST's CX-E platform has enabled Seattle Pacific University to operate in an evolving email environment while continuing to offer the University's faculty and staff a completely unified experience."

Hybrid is in, and AVST is keeping up with the trends. The CX-E UC platform provides an excellent solution, offering mobile, voice and business process applications that can help improve the work of employees and groups, and as it’s made for use on private or hybrid cloud deployments, it can work for almost any business with minimal investments required.

AVST has a great track record, and this is looking to be another gold star on it.
