Enhanced collaboration portfolio delivers ‘office-in-the cloud’

By: Kevin Ireland

The rise of the mobile enterprise and necessity for voice, video and collaboration anywhere, at any time, requires solutions which can provide a seamless high-quality experience that doesn’t distinguish between working in an office, from home or on the road. Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ newly enhanced global collaboration portfolio capabilities provide rich conferencing and mobile collaboration tools designed to meet the needs of the digitally connected workforce. They are based on Cisco WebEx Cloud Connected Audio, Collaboration Meeting Room and Verizon’s UCCaaS Mobile First service and delivered via an integrated platform and dedicated Verizon/Cisco data-center connectivity with the ability to easily expand and add new sites as business conditions dictate. “With our cloud-based Collaboration Suite, Verizon is putting all the right tools in place to provide a simple, secure and reliable experience for corporate workers when meeting and collaborating with colleagues, partners and customers,” said Tony Recine, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Enterprise Solutions. The advanced communication enhancements include:

  • UCCaaS Mobile First – An advanced collaboration solution based on Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution. Built for an increasingly mobile workforce, it offers end-users the ability to boost the audio and video performance of the Cisco Jabber mobile unified communications client application on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
  • Cisco WebEx with Cloud Connected Audio and Collaboration Meeting Rooms – Two easy and convenient features that give enterprises an “any device” solution in more than 150 countries and 2,700 cities worldwide.
  • Cisco Collaboration Meeting Rooms -- Corporate users can take advantage of a personalized, 24x7 collaboration meeting resource to meet at an instance’s notice with a simple click. This solution offers simplicity, scalability, global reach and flexibility.

“Verizon continues to be a key strategic partner focused on delivering cloud collaboration solutions to our mutual customers and is now raising the bar even higher with these new capabilities,” said Pat Romzek, vice president, Worldwide Sales Cloud Strategy and Enablement at Cisco. “Verizon’s trio of new features is a strong differentiator for the market that will help to deliver on the promise of voice, data and video collaboration ‘everywhere’ and workplace productivity from ‘anywhere’.” For more information on Verizon’s advanced communications solution, visit http://www.verizonenterprise.com/products/advanced-communications/index.xml.
