NextPlane Reports Record Adoption of Unified Communications

July 09, 2012

NextPlane, a provider of federation services for disparate unified communications solutions, has seen a high amount of growth in the adoption of NextPlane Federation Cloud service over a 30-day period. In fact, the company posted a record month connecting more businesses than ever into federated business communities through its solution.

During this period, the unified communications traffic federated by NextPlane exceeded a quarter of a billion messages during the month. This growth, according to NextPlane, indicates the growing demand for seamless integration between disparate UC platforms to enable real-time, collaborative business communities using cloud computing.

Through connecting more than 127,925 unique users across the NextPlane service¸ customers can now leverage cloud-based presence, IM, multi-user chat, voice and video services. The offering supports all major UC platforms including Microsoft LCS, OCS, OCS R2 and Lync, Cisco Jabber XCP, CUPS and Webex Connect, IBM Sametime, Google Apps, Jive OpenFire, ISODE M-Link and eJabberd. 

"Unified communications speeds time-to-market with real-time collaboration, and our cloud-based solution breaks down the interoperability barriers between UC platforms," said Farzin Shahidi, founder and CEO of NextPlane, in a statement. "More businesses are realizing that building federated partner communities using presence, chat, voice, and video has a competitive advantage and saves them time and money."

Companies in different industries including manufacturing, automotive, oil and gas, media, pharmaceuticals and financial services are increasingly leveraging NextPlane Federation Cloud to improve collaboration.    

This unified communications suite eliminates the need to set up and maintain separate solutions from multiple partners. Instead, it offers unprecedented control over different types of traffic (IM, presence, voice, video, and file transfer). With NextPlane's unique analytics and reporting tools in place, companies gain valuable insight into how collaboration with their partner community is driving their business.
