  • PANEL: Does architecture matter when considering UCaaS solutions? Wed 5th Oct 15:40 - 16:30

    PANEL: Does architecture matter when considering UCaaS solutions?

    Hosted and cloud based solutions for unified communications are now a well established delivery model.  One of the major benefits of UCaaS is the fact that the service provider assumes responsibility for the provision of the platform.  But providers are building and offering services based on a variety of architectures, particularly in terms of connectivity and availability.  Should customers care about this?  Do you need to know and should you take into account architectural considerations when selecting your service provider?
     
    This panel aims to address this challenging topic,  Chaired by Dave Mailer, a leading independent consultant representing customers’ interests, the panel comprises senior representatives in the unified communications industry.  There will be an opportunity to hear the panellists debate alternative views and to put your questions to the panel.

    Chair: Dave Mailer, 4C Strategies

  • What do Businesses Really Want from their Mobile Service? Thu 6th Oct 13:40 - 14:10

    What do Businesses Really Want from their Mobile Service?

    The benefits for improving business voice, data and mobile network performance are clear – improved customer service, enhanced employee productivity, collaboration and better commercial flexibility cited as just a few. However, the road to improvement is challenging, with 8 out of 10 businesses finding it more and more difficult to manage their voice, mobile and data services, according to a recent survey conducted by Gamma. In addition, 70% believe the rise in working trends (such as BYOD) has placed increasing pressure on network performance. Seeking network efficiency in an age of increased demand for mobility presents the biggest dilemma for many businesses.
