The internet has grown rapidly from a random collection of mainly academic networks and military control and routing protocols into a global, integrated and sophisticated commercial utility. No longer simply an 'Information Superhighway', it has extended to embrace voice telephony, video and mobile communications as part of a converged network. Connection options and services have expanded, with opportunities for internet service providers (ISPs) to add value beyond simply forwarding bit and bytes.
Comfort & Security in the Cloud - Read this white paper to learn how communications as a service delivers superior technology stability and resiliency. Learn about the world of the contact center and the technology today that offers richness and more
Cloud communications provide myriad benefits for organizations, including speed of deployment, the ability to future-proof infrastructure and applications, business continuity, predictable monthly payments, and many more. Most organizations turn to the cloud in order to cost-effectively access enhanced capabilities while eliminating the complexity of deploying and managing premises-based solutions. Cloud-based contact center solutions offer additional benefits, notably the ease of adding or removing agents as needed based on fluctuating or seasonal traffic, ease of deploying remote or at-home agents, and ease of adding multi-channel services.
The use of pollable remote access units enable integration of phone systems with telecommunications management, plus system-wide access, monitoring and alarm notification that includes unmanned remote sites. Few telephone networks connect a user base that is involved in such a multitude of vital services as local government.

De nombreuses organisations et entreprises dans le monde entier disposent de pièces vacantes, autrefois remplies de câbles, de boîtes noires et de voyants clignotants. Ces locaux abritent une armoire téléphonique poussiéreuse, ne contenant qu'un seul terminal, ou parfois un baby-foot que les employés du service informatique utilisent pour décompresser. Le cloud, et notamment les communications via le cloud, sont à l'origine de cette transformation qui a bouleversé le paysage informatique. Certains professionnels de l'informatique ont accueilli ce changement à bras ouverts. D'autres préparent la migration progressive de leurs services vers le cloud. D'autres enfin conservent leur solution sur site, par choix ou par nécessité.

A common misconception about hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is that because data services are software-defined, the hardware doesn’t matter. It’s easy to see why—the software driving HCI solutions such as the Dell EMC XC Series (in this case, Nutanix software) is exceptional. It efficiently manages data and communications across a cluster of nodes and storage tiers, keeping the cluster and virtual machines (VMs) up and running, delivering optimal performance and availability. Software-defined infrastructure is changing the way data services are delivered, making companies more efficient and agile, and reducing costs.

The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs)
continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on
several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the
cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they
encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn,
better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small
to medium-size business (SMB) market segment.
The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they
face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are
well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks.
While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area
because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the
service in a car
