IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading technology provider for advanced IT, communications, and networking solutions, today announced UNIVERGE BLUE Business Cloud Services (UNIVERGE BLUE) for the growing adoption of cloud communications among today’s fast-moving, cost-conscious organizations. With security and continuous uptime being top of mind, UNIVERGE BLUE answers the call with enterprise-class availability for cloud unified communications (UC) services. UNIVERGE BLUE delivers the most sought after cloud business services including voice, mobility, messaging, presence, web conferencing and contact centers.
Businesses are aggressively embracing cloud communication services, citing cost, innovation and agility as reasons for adoption. While particularly embraced by companies with multi-site locations, security and reliability remain the prime barriers to wide-spread cloud adoption.
Backed by decades of NEC engineering experience, UNIVERGE BLUE architecture stands out, providing resiliency, from the application layer to the platform and infrastructure layers, and delivering a complete end-to-end robust business cloud solution. UNIVERGE BLUE is a part of an overall NEC solution, a solid foundation consisting of NEC Fault Tolerance servers, software-defined networking (SDN), software, and data centers.
“If an enterprise is building a private, hybrid or public cloud service, the underlying architecture has a big impact on what can be done,” said Jay Krauser, director, Business Development Cloud Services, NEC Corporation of America. “Not all cloud solutions are built the same, so it’s also important for businesses to examine the bottom line of their cloud investments and to understand the underlying technology. UNIVERGE BLUE is built from the same reliable software foundation as UNIVERGE 3C™, ensuring mission-critical communications.”
UNIVERGE BLUE enables businesses to move into the cloud with confidence:
- Architected for high availability, 99.999 percent
- Multi-tenant, enterprise-grade security and encryption in the cloud
- 24/7 support and system monitoring
- Mission-critical UC applications: voice, mobility, messaging, presence, conferencing and contact center
- Supports private, hybrid and public cloud UC deployments
The unified communications as a service (UCaaS) market is experiencing rapid adoption as UCaaS offerings are closing the gap with their premises-based counterparts.
“The cloud portion of the worldwide UC&C market is expected to grow to $20 billion in revenue in 2019, representing three times the growth rate of premises-based solutions for the 2015-2019 period,” said Rich Costello, senior research analyst at IDC.
Multi-site businesses, educational institutions, government agencies, healthcare and hospitality industries are all adapting to the fast-paced, mobile-focused digital world. The UNIVERGE BLUE solution brings speed and flexibility, and enables new communication technologies with an easy, pay-as-you-go plan. UNIVERGE BLUE removes the burden of developing, maintaining and securing a communications infrastructure, allowing organizations to focus on their core business and goals.
Orchestrating a brighter world for business, UNIVERGE BLUE Business Cloud Services is backed by NEC’s 100+ years of experience, innovation and infrastructure investments. For more information, visit www.univergeblue.com.
