Frequently Asked Questions
RingCentral Cloud Connector is a hybrid PBX model where businesses can interconnect their on-premises PBX systems with RingCentral MVP. This allows for seamless internal employee dialing between on-premises PBX users and RingCentral cloud users. Previously, internal employee communication between both groups could not be connected, which caused increased overall telecommunications spend and IT complexities due to roaming charges and PSTN connectivity. Modern UCaaS providers like RingCentral changed that model and now include a hybrid PBX solution with offering.
For large scale enterprises considering moving communications to the cloud, they may encounter a number of barriers where a hybrid PBX approach can help. For example, large enterprises with nationwide or global offices that require interconnection may have disparate, complex communication systems or operate a regulated business that requires some on-premises equipment in order to meet security standards. Also, those who are considering deploying a cloud communication service, but various concerns are holding them back from taking a full leap to cloud communications.
Large, global enterprises usually consider a multi-year, phased approach as they plan their shift to the cloud. This is yet another reason why a hybrid PBX deployment like RingCentral Cloud Connector may offer some additional flexibility. It can allow IT teams to manage cut-overs from legacy systems to a cloud platform in a piecemeal fashion, while at the same time allowing them to rollback easily should something go wrong.
RingCentral Cloud Connector may be right for you if any of the following describes your telephony goals:
- You want to leverage your current on-premises PBX for a few more years, but you see the value of VoIP cost savings.
- You want to sweat your current on-premises PBX for a few more years, but you also need video meetings and team messaging tools for some users in your company.
- You are looking for a hybrid PBX model that allows only a subset of users to migrate to cloud while also interconnecting them with your on-premises PBX users.
- You have a desire to test modern UCaaS tools before you start your full cloud migration journey to reduce unknown risks.
- You are part of a multinational company, and want to save costs on global dialing, internal employee communications and save 15-20% (on average) for external dialing with users who migrate to cloud.
