Unified Communications Week in Review: Gsolutionz, Broadview, DATAK, Unify, More
It’s quite possible that without unified communications (UC), the world would be more fit, as we might have to get up and make more trips on foot to various areas of the office to communicate with coworkers rather than shooting an instant message over or a quick email. Of course, fitness isn’t everything—especially when you factor in how streamlined workplace communication is thanks to UC, all the money that is saved by not having to fly between various office locations thanks to conferencing tools, and all the germs that aren’t spread by giving employees the technology they need to work from home should a cold strike.
Safe to say, UC is important. That’s why our community covers the most important news, features and analysis that occur each week, every week. Here are the highlights from the week that was.
First on the rundown, Communications consulting firm Gsolutionz has announced that it has been made a Platinum partner by Avaya. The relationship between the two companies is one that both companies expect to be mutually beneficial.
"The entire Gsolutionz Team is extremely proud to be recognized as an Avaya 'Platinum' partner,” Gsolutionz president Ian Pugh said. For more commentary and the complete report, click HERE.
Next up, Broadview Networks, a well-established leader in the communications and information tech market, announced a new partnership with DATAK Communications, a communications company with a sound reputation in the Pacific Northwest. The new partnership will, among other things, give DATAK access to Broadview’s OfficeSuite Cloud, which gives the latter company more product visibility in the Pacific Northwest.

This week Unify jumped into the Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) ring with a new solution of its own: Circuit. The new solution is essentially a tributary of Unify’s Circuit Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, which was formerly called Project Ansible. Find out how the solution will help companies and developers in the full story. Hint: it’s WebRTC-based.
And last but not least, TMC’s Steve Anderson honed in on a recent report from Edgewater Networks and Metaswitch Networks, which makes the claim that there is a new $26 billion opportunity on the horizon for service providers, and it comes in the form of the small and medium-sized business (SMB) market. To get specifics of the report, and to find out companies can capitalize on this new information, read the full article, HERE.
And that’s a wrap! But be sure to check in early and often as we continue to aggregate the most important stories of the unified communications space.
Have a wonderful weekend!
