Telstra announced its next generation of unified communications with a range of cloud collaboration solutions for its business, enterprise and government customers.
 
The new offering allows Telstra customers to operate Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) including integrated voice, video, presence and mobility applications for compatible desktop and mobile devices, representing a significant shift forward in communication capabilities.
 
Developed in partnership with Cisco, the service, known as Cloud Collaboration, will be delivered via Telstra’s cloud infrastructure, enabling customers to focus on core business priorities whilst benefiting from a services model managed by Telstra without the need for on-premise systems.
 
Telstra is extending its continued investment in cloud by adding popular applications from Cisco within the Telstra cloud infrastructure. All services will be hosted locally in Telstra’s Australian data centres and delivered to customers over the company’s NextG and Next IP networks, ensuring high level security and reliability.
 
The end to end, intelligent Telstra network with the ability to prioritise traffic, such as business critical voice data, means that Telstra’s cloud services are responsive to high bandwidth applications, enabling customers to extend Unified Communications capabilities to more places, particularly to regional or remote workers.
 
Telstra’s service will be available to customers on a monthly, “per worker” basis.
