Verizon to offer UC service in the cloud.

by VoipPlanet.com Staff

Service is aimed at enterprises -- businesses with 1,000 or more employees.

"Verizon is promising to deliver a cloud-based unified communications service by late Spring that is fit for businesses and government agencies with 1,000 employees or more, the carrier announced at the Enterprise Connect conference in Orlando Monday," writes InformationWeek's David F. Carr

"Verizon's Unified Communications & Collaboration-as-a-Service (UCCaaS) is currently being tested by organizations like the State of Virginia. In addition to predictable per-seat pricing, Verizon said it would deliver the flexibility to switch calls between mobile phones and IP desk phones. Verizon is introducing its own Mobile UC client, in addition to integration with phones from Nokia and Cisco (based on the iPhone)," Carr writes.
