RingCentral is now working with Ericsson to offer a new pre-verified and pre-integrated communications solution. This solution enables service providers to bring Voice over LTE (VoLTE) cloud communications solutions to enterprises globally. With this new offering, service providers can offer businesses a ubiquitous cloud communications service with easy-to-use native dialing and guaranteed quality-of-service.
RingCentral leverages Ericsson VoLTE for Unified Communication (UC) solution to integrate its carrier solutions with IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) networks. This enables service providers to deliver differentiated offerings to the enterprise market faster than Over the Top (OTT) or non-VoLTE based Unified Communications services. Compared to traditional carrier-hosted solutions, the pre-verified and pre-integrated RingCentral and Ericsson cloud solution enables service providers to manage their VoLTE networks without having to modify them to accommodate new UC services, reducing implementation time and accelerating product refresh cycles. In addition, enterprises benefit from the RingCentral platform and core capabilities, including self-service management, analytics, open APIs and integrations, and global coverage.
The RingCentral cloud solution has proven success in the enterprise and carrier markets and provides an opportunity for service providers to monetize their IMS investments while extending their VoLTE services to enterprise customers. A pre-verified and pre-tested solution gives service providers significantly less capex, lower lifecycle management cost and faster time to market. Ultimately service providers will become a one-stop shop for enterprises’ complete connectivity needs.
For service providers, integrating their VoLTE networks with the cloud provides a competitive edge and enables them to offer a differentiated UC solution that’s faster to activate and easier to bundle with other mobile services. As the digital workplace continues to evolve, enterprise customers benefit from the rapid innovation delivered by cloud communications services, without sacrificing the simplicity, coverage, and guaranteed quality of VoLTE. Together with Ericsson, a clear leader in the IMS market, we allow service providers to take full advantage of this opportunity.
