Sonus Cloud Link Integrates Skype for Business Cloud Connector Edition in a Single Appliance
Sonus Networks announced support for Skype for Business Cloud Connector Edition through Sonus Cloud Link, an intelligent, scalable, vendoragnostic solution. It enables secure enterprise migration to Cloud PBX in Office 365 and supports Skype for Business’ hybrid cloud deployments.
Sonus Cloud Link integrates the Cloud Connector Edition application into a single communications appliance. It also preserves existing PSTN connectivity, supports analog devices, and provides enterprise-wide legacy dial plan and active directory dial plan integration. Powered by Sonus Session Border Controllers, Sonus Cloud Link’s security features prevent unauthorized access and preserve communications from hacker attacks.
“From Lync to Skype for Business to Cloud PBX and Cloud Connector Edition, Sonus has experience supporting Microsoft’s advanced communications offerings. Sonus Cloud Link now offers a simple way for companies to move to Microsoft Cloud PBX in Office 365, while securely providing PSTN access,” said Mykola Konrad, Sonus Vice President, Product Management and Marketing.
Microsoft’s Skype for Business Cloud Connector Edition was designed as a hybrid offering that includes virtual machines that connect its unified communications offerings to PSTN services. Enterprises that deploy it end up with a minimal Skype for Business server topology in a virtualized environment that provides a way to send and receive calls through VoIP or PSTN means.
Since Microsoft launched Cloud Connector earlier this week, several vendors and partners have announced integrations between their products or services and the new virtualized communications and collaboration offerings. M AY 2 0 1 6 | HWM 127
