Hello to ultimate flexibility

Our customers have complex needs. We’ve made sure we deeply understand them. Based on that feedback, we’ve launched Bring Your Own Carrier (BYOC), giving customers an extra level of control over their transition to cloud. Take it from an award-winning leader in cloud telephony: voice is the underpinning pillar of all critical business communications.

Why businesses need BYOC 

Bring Your Own Carrier specifically supports larger enterprise customers as they encounter a number of complexities where this approach can help. For example, an enterprise may find themselves in the middle of multi-year contracts with carriers that would be cost-prohibitive to break. Our customers might have locations in regions where capabilities of origination or termination services may be limited by cloud telephony vendors due to highly regulated industries and regions.

Lastly, multinational enterprises usually consider a multi-year, phased approach for their shift to cloud. BYOC allows IT to manage cut-overs from legacy systems in a piecemeal fashion, while also allowing easy rollbacks if something should go wrong.

Benefits of using BYOC models

Here are some of the benefits of this model over a pure unified communications as a service (UCaaS) play. 

Flexibility to meet your needs

Transform at your pace with flexible telephony options for your cloud migration. Enjoy the benefits of RingCentral MVP while maintaining your existing carrier contracts, numbers and rates for less friction during your migration.

Robust global coverage

Any multinational company with employees outside RingCentral’s 44+ natively supported countries or with regional service limitations can still use RingCentral MVP, given there is a local carrier relationship. 

Maintain full control

Full control over connectivity, call routing, calling plans, emergency services dialling and call forwarding features for high regulatory needs. Avoid the number porting process and maintain phone numbers with your carrier. Do a slow phased migration versus a rip and replace. Migrate your way.

Avoid early-termination fees

Give your users modern tools even if you’re stuck in inflexible carrier contracts. Maintain existing PBX contracts and avoid early-termination fees.

Streamline end-user experience 

Make the most of a single app for video, messaging, task management, whiteboarding, voice communications and more. 

Use your current infrastructure

Continue to use your existing Infrastructure. You decide when to deprecate.

Overall, BYOC offers enterprises the maximum flexibility they need to get the most out of their communications stack.
