Smoothstone and Sprint to Offer Enterprise Class Converged Communications Solutions from the Cloud
For enterprises needing PBX functionality from the cloud extended to Sprint mobile phones, providing mobility, accessibility, and enhanced productivity for employees, the integrated solution from Smoothstone and Sprint delivers converged technology without the significant capital investment of on-premise PBX systems. Users benefit from having a single number where they can be reached in or out of the office, a single voice mail, abbreviated dialing plans and sophisticated group and personal call controls. The integration of Smoothstone’s cloud-based applications and services platform with Sprint’s award winning Global MPLS network and full Quality of Service (QoS) management, creates a powerful suite of Smoothstone tools that provide real-time monitoring of call quality and application performance.
“The flexibility of deployment that Smoothstone offers is a big advantage for our business customers,” said Monnie McGaffigan, vice president of wireline, international and strategic alliances, Sprint. “The largest enterprises see the value of converged IP communications with full mobile integration, but many do not have the resources or budgets to completely replace their existing infrastructure. Our combined solution enables a complex enterprise to migrate to a fully converged solution at a pace that makes sense for their business.”
