Unified Communications Week in Review: Fusion, Mitel, UC & More

November 21, 2018

The cloud era is upon us, and the dawn of a new day has arrived. Technology is in the midst of a major transformation as a result of cloud computing, and one area most notably grabbing attention is the unified communications space. So, with the weekend upon us, there’s no better time than the present to take a look back at the week that was in unified communications news: Time for the Week in Review!

Mitel announced an expanded partnership with MLB as the title partner of next season’s MLB London Series. Taking place June 29-30 2019, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox will put one of MLB’s biggest rivalries on the world stage. All the details are HERE.

UC is a murky topic. Unified communications at its most basic level is voice, email, and presence/IM capability in an application. And some companies are very particular about saying they have UC apps because they have the basic ones. But UC can also mean voice conferencing, video conferencing, text messaging, collaboration/document sharing, and fax. Take a deep dive into the world of unified communications with industry vet Jim Machi HERE.

Fusion announced a rapidly growing Asian fast food chain selected the cloud services provider to deliver connectivity and communications to its 78 U.S. locations.

There’s an oversupply of companies trying to sell unified communications solutions to SMBs. Yet, these players have only been able to penetrate a small portion of the market. In light of that, and the fact that the world is going mobile, cellular operators are ideally positioned to disrupt the UC market. At least that’s the position of Chris Carabello, senior director of product marketing for Metaswitch Networks. All you need to know is HERE.

Come back early and often for your fill of all things Unified Communications. See you next week!
