Unified Communications Week in Review: Bay Microsystems, 800Comms, Vonage, NTT

June 24, 2017

Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in Unified Communications this week.

The week started off with the news that Bay Microsystems has turned to Unified Office’s Total Connect Now system to fill the gaps in its network. By choosing Total Connect Now, Bay Microsystems got access to a range of communications tools, starting with voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) service and running down to analytics tools for business communications. TMC Steve Anderson’s full coverage is HERE.

Next up, 800Comms has made BroadCloud-based UC&C available in the UK. To do so, it teamed up with OneCloud Networks and BroadSoft. The CEO of 800Comms explained the company's desire to offer unified communications solutions to its customers as a hosted platform by saying, “Our fully scalable offering enables our small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and enterprise customers to take benefit from a hosted communications solution with a carrier-grade voice and video quality and team collaborative tools.” Everything you need to know is HERE.

The news also broke this week that Vonage is now the UC provider for the Mobile Medical Examination Service (MedXM). MedXM specializes in preventative care technology and risk assessment, meeting with patients to highlight potential health risks and working proactively to treat them before they develop into more serious issues. Since the company is fairly large, it decided to bring in a UC provider to help with operations. Find out why it chose Vonage HERE.

Finally, the week rounded out with the news that NTT Com has launched its new API Gateway as a Service offering. According to TMC’s Paula Bernier, “This solution was designed to help companies more easily manage APIs from multiple systems. NTT Com’s API Gateway as a Service will simplify rights management for controlling group access. It will assist organizations in connecting those APIs with external systems. And it will help prevent security risks such as distributed denial of service attacks.” Her full coverage is HERE.

That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the Unified Communications space.
