Driven by the need to save money, improve agility, and take rapid advantage of emerging technologies to improve internal collaboration and customer engagement, organizations are quickly adopting Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS). UCaaS and CCaaS enable businesses to deliver a modern communications environment, without large capital investment, and in a manner that provides for rapid scaling, easy expansion into new sites and geographies, and deployment flexibility. Unfortunately, many enterprise networks are not optimized to deliver the performance and reliability required to support cloud-based applications, including UCaaS and CCaaS. As a result, IT leaders are rapidly adopting Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN) technologies. With SD-WAN’s ability to virtualize underlying network services and to build enterprise-grade WANs using both public (Internet) connectivity and private WAN connectivity, IT leaders can leverage it to su

The telecommunications market is highly saturated. In most of the developed world, nearly everyone who wants a mobile phone has one. There are opportunities for carriers to increase service usage or upsell customers on higher-value devices or services, but each new account generally comes at a competitor’s expense—so customer retention is crucial. Telecom service providers need to reduce losses, prevent churn and maximise revenue on their offerings. FICO’s Best Next Action™ technology can be an important tool to achieve all of these objectives, either by presenting new offer terms or cross-selling other products and accessories to enhance the customer’s telecommunications experience—the handset upgrade, better financing terms, insurance on the handset or a subscription service for content. o Prevent account churn o Optimise service utilisation o Segment accounts o Tailor the contact method to the account

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

Cox Communications has been a SundaySky customer for five years, running personalized video ad programs through traditional video publisher channels. At the end of 2016, Cox Communications expanded that program to Facebook to see if greater levels of personalization and performance could be achieved by combining the dynamic capabilities of SmartVideo technology with the reach of the Facebook ads platform. The program targets recent Cox website visitors on Facebook and delivers them a relevant video ad with offers related to products and services they had viewed on Cox.com. The program leverages SundaySky’s SmartVideo platform to achieve Cox’s online revenue goals of maximizing the number of revenue-generating orders on its website while also lowering the cost per acquisition (CPA) as the program optimizes.

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.

In an industry like automobile sales and service, responsiveness can easily mean the difference between a service appointment, a large-ticket sale – or a customer taking their business elsewhere. Despite its reputation for meeting and exceeding customer needs, Voss Auto Network was using an aging communications system. The network of dealerships, including eight locations across Ohio, serves over 500 employees. Getting calls even when “walking the lot,” quickly retrieving voicemails, and having the ability to easily track missed calls all proved key to taking customer service, sales, and repeat business to the next level.

Communications service providers are looking for alternative deployment models that will help them support fast-growing network demand. Moving to a virtualized EPC (vEPC) solution can help service providers achieve more cost-e?ective scaling by using standard high-volume servers in place of purpose-built systems. System integrators, software vendors, and platform providers rely on Intel® technologies to deliver the performance and scalability required for vEPC solutions. Intel is also participating in the development of open standards, contributing to the open source community, developing reference architectures, engaging with industry participants, and collaborating on trials that can help facilitate the evolution to vEPC solutions and accelerate network transformation by use of network functions virtualization.

Using the IP Multimedia System (IMS) architecture, Communications Service Providers (CSPs) can offer session-based services. Any Internet Protocol/Session Internet Protocol (IP/SIP) device can establish a session with the control servers’ Call Session Control Function (CSCF) and then establish connections with other IP/ SIP devices to deliver voice, video, and data sessions between the two end-clients.

While holding the promise of HD quality, enriched services, and the benefits of a common packet switched access infrastructure, the adoption of infrastructure-based voice over LTE (VoLTE), along with rich communications such as video and real-time messaging, has stalled over the last few years with concerns around quality, security, and cost. During that time, the value of the phone number as a globally significant user ID and key services such as SMS and MMS have been relegated by phone manufacturers, over the top (OTT) services, and even the subscribers themselves as “technologies of last resort.” Finally, the proliferation of 4G, together with the emergence of network functions virtualization (NFV), powered by Intel®, Hewlett Packard Enterprise* (HPE), and Metaswitch*, is allowing network operators to take charge of the consumer’s communications experience, once more.

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.

The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.

The digital service revolution is well underway. For communications service providers (CSPs), it means going beyond traditional voice and data and upgrading their entire digital communications infrastructure. Research shows enterprise-class organizations are allocating heavy dollars towards communications solutions and prefer a single provider for digital services. This is a massive opportunity for CSPs to expand their services, generate more revenue, grow profit and increase market share. However, the majority of enterprises reported not receiving a consistently excellent experience with their most recent service contract. As a result, many switch to new providers. CSPs are losing credibility and the loyalty of their customers because of legacy and traditional systems that constrain their ability to act quickly. Enterprises are looking for CSPs who understand their complex business and can offer a full portfolio of digital services with quality and creativity to meet their needs.
