NTT and Microsoft have partnered on a new unified communications service for global businesses.
Arcstar UcaaS Microsoft Type, launched in Japan on 13 April, uses Microsoft Lync to provide unified communications as a service. This includes integrated telephone and remote conference on NTT Com’s cloud platform and virtual private network.
Microsoft business solutions are integrated with the platform, with Office 365 or Exchange enabled to faciliate companies’ enterprise mobility requirements. The product can also be used to centralise Arcstar IP Voice for corporate IP calls and Arcstar SIP Trunking for international calls when provided through Arcstar Universal One.
In addition, the service includes pre-development consultation, system design, provision of IP phone and voice gateway hardware, as well as legacy system migration. Users will receive ongoing maintenance, operation and support.
