Sonus supports the new Cloud PBX feature of Office 365 with on-premises PSTN connectivity.
Sonus brings security, reliability and flexibility to disparate communications networks, simplifying hybrid Skype for Business deployments.
Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in secure and intelligent Cloud communications and a Microsoft Gold Communications partner, announced today support for the new Cloud PBX feature of Microsoft Office 365. With its support, Sonus provides advanced intelligence, security and interworking capabilities that simplify enterprise transition to Office 365 Cloud-based Skype for Business implementations.
In conjunction with Microsoft's announcement, customers can now access the new Cloud PBX features of Office 365. Sonus provides SBCs that deliver seamless integration, security and flexibility to enterprises migrating to a hybrid deployment by using on-premises PSTN connectivity with Cloud PBX in Office 365.
Sonus SBCs act as an interworking and security solution to support enterprise TDM and SIP trunking needs; preserving existing service provider contracts during migration. Sonus SBCs also deliver investment protection, allowing customers to leverage existing legacy communications technology such as PBX, fax, analog lines and Integrated Voice Response (IVR) platforms. Additionally, Sonus' SBCs ensure remaining on-premises voice and video systems deliver robust user experiences when communicating with end-points already migrated to the Cloud.
Sonus delivers the same trusted, no-compromise performance and reliability in Cloud PBX deployments that it has delivered in Skype for Business on-premises.
"As a Microsoft Gold Communications Hardware partner, Sonus has provided Microsoft's customers worldwide with trusted UC solutions that work seamlessly across the Skype for Business platform and we see that same reliable experience transitioning to Cloud PBX deployments," said Giovanni Mezgec, General Manager of Applications and Services Marketing at Microsoft.
"Sonus accelerates customer implementation of voice and video, enabling a great customer experience with Office 365," said Mykola Konrad, Sonus, vice president, Go-to-Market. "By integrating their existing SIP trunking to the Cloud PBX with Sonus, customers receive a safe, secure and interoperable experience that integrates their core business processes during their migration."
According to Webtorials' 2015 Unified Communications, SIP and SBC Plans and Priorities report, "hybrid deployments are the preferred approach to UC in the future and will eventually outpace premise-based solutions."
Sonus is the only SBC vendor that has certified a solution for Skype for Business software since GA.
