But there is a better way. With Outcome-Driven Networking, organizations are changing the way that networks are managed and maintained. It introduces a level of intelligence, learning, and automation that has not been present before, streamlining and aggregating activities into a single-click. Using Outcome-Driven Networking,…

Losing Internet connectivity can easily debilitate a business, but imagine if that downed connectivity spans entire geographic areas. Retail organizations lose the ability to transact.

Last week we wrapped up BroadSoft Connections 2015 in Phoenix. We had quite a few interesting conversations with Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) providers.

The questions and concerns we heard from UCaaS providers were: We have to turn away customers because we cannot support off-net deployment We cannot support BYOB/BYOC while ensuring quality of service We are getting a lot of demand to deliver our service over the…
