Now offers Colt Intelligent Communications voice service with Cloud SBC in Japan
Tokyo, Japan, 25 April 2022 – Customers in Japan now have access to a fully cloud-based unified communication solution, with Colt Technology Services’ announcement that it now offers Colt Intelligent Communications (CIC) with Cloud Session Border Controller (SBC) in Japan.
CIC is an enterprise solution integrating the power of Microsoft’s cloud productivity applications with Colt’s voice and data networks to deliver end-to-end performance, security and reliability for a unique one-stop IT capability.
Colt Cloud SBC makes migrating voice to Microsoft Teams easier than ever. Enterprises can leverage Colt’s extensive voice and data footprint – both on and off net – in a bundled solution bringing together voice traffic, connectivity and cloud.
Launching in Japan in partnership with Ribbon – a global provider of real-time communications software and IP optical networking solutions – businesses in the region can now benefit from the intelligent collaboration experience delivered by a single provider.
Colt Cloud SBC is fully cloud-based and enables greater agility for enterprises of any size. With no physical hardware, provisioning and onboarding takes less than a month – dramatically reducing delivery time. It also provides flexibility, offering per usage pricing to allow small and medium enterprises to deliver ongoing digital transformation.
Masato Hoshino, Colt’s President and Head of Asia, said: “Voice traffic has grown dramatically in the last couple of years and we have seen that a secure cloud communication and collaboration solution is a fundamental component of digital transformation for companies of all sizes. CIC and Cloud SBC means organisations both large and small can benefit from the highest quality cloud voice experience, without the need to invest in additional hardware and software, and the skills to manage them.”
“Colt’s latest investment in its Intelligent Communications offering in Japan makes migration to Microsoft Teams quick and simple for our customers and the flexibility and agility it delivers will continue to underpin their business objectives in the region long into the future.”
Colt’s voice and network solutions are underpinned by the Colt IQ Network, which is comprised of more than 29,000 on net buildings and 900 data centres globally.
