November 11, 2017

Unified Communications keeps you abreast of the latest news from the UC space, including announcements, acquisitions, partnerships, and more. From Fusion announcing enhancements to collab9 partnering with the United States Customs and more, a lot was going on in the world of unified communications. In case you missed anything, we have got you covered with the week in review.

Border control was a hot topic to kick off the week and Paula Bernier was there to cover it all. According to Frost & Sullivan, last year nearly 40 percent of North American business users used cloud-based unified communication, IP telephony, SIP trunking, and/or VoIP. This is something that will definitely be monitored and will be kept on top of.

Fusion, a firm with a strong foundation in the delivery of cloud services, announced enhancements to its proprietary MobileConnect UCaaS solution this week, promising to push this award-winning solution to new heights. “Our cloud solutions have been developed to help businesses do more as they save more, combining the benefits of the cloud with On-net and Over the Top access for a complete single-source solution that drives efficiency and productivity across the enterprise,” shared Russell Markman, Fusion’s President of Business Services.

Also, collab9, a FedRAMP authorized UCaaS provider, partnered with the United States Customs to supply the first such deployment in the federal government. This comes a year after collab9 earned its FedRAMP authorization. The newly announced partnership is a product of EAGLE II contract, and collab9 partner Presidio is tasked with delivering end-to-end services, including strategy, consulting, design, and implementation.

Finally, Arkadin and Beijing 263 Enterprise Communications Company Ltd (263) have signed a partnership to meet China’s growing demand for cloud communications solutions. The companies aim to deliver the ultimate in audio, web, and video conferencing, web events, and unified communications. This technology will be delivered through Arkadin’s cloud conferencing platform.
