Unified Communications Week in Review: Fusion, Netia, SkySwitch and More

April 16, 2016

As business needs evolve so, too, do the tools required. A primary component of a successful firm is unified communications, and the solutions of today support our always-on, always plugged-in lifestyle while offering feature-rich and reliable solutions. And, with the weekend upon us, there’s no better time than the present to take a look at the week that was: Time for the Week in Review!

Michael Guta hit leadoff this week, reporting that Birch finalized its acquisition of select Primus assets. Birch provides voice, cloud, network, IT and mobile services, and with the purchase completed it gains Primus’ customer base. In the past several years Birch has employed the strategy of growth via acquisition, which so far is paying off. Guta’s complete analysis is HERE.

This week Netia launched its ‘New Netia’ cloud-based UC solution. Netia looked to Broadsoft to leverage the Broadsoft UC-One software to provide customers with a solution that can grow with a company. Steve Anderson has everything you need to know HERE.

Also in the news, SkySwitch selected SimpleWAN to provide its resellers with more visibility and control. SkySwitch is known for its full-featured UC platform, and with the addition of the SimpleWAN solution resellers are able to easily manage and monitor traffic via a single interface. Paula Bernier’s complete report is HERE.

Recently, TMC CEO Rich Tehrani had the opportunity to sit down with Fusion’s President of Business Services Russell P. Markman to talk shop and the economy. Tehrani notes that traditionally, the telecom market is a reference for the economy. Fusion, a firm offering a wide range of products from UC to fax and SIP, is seeing much success as a result of its Fusion 360, and its exceptional performance. Markman notes telecom is strong, and according to precedent so too is the economy. Tehrani’s complete article is HERE.

Fusion has been known to be quite the mover and shaker in the cloud UC space, not afraid to grow through acquisition, and always looking for ways to better the firm. This week it announced it filled a priority position at the top of the organization naming Michael R. Bauer as its Chief Financial Officer. The entire story is HERE.
