Telecom operators around the world are introducing services that integrate many applications using cloud services to give mobile devices more power than ever before. As smartphones continue to incorporate communications, commerce, and work, comprehensive collaboration solutions are becoming an integral part of mobile platforms. Axtel (News - Alert), a telecommunication products and services provider in Mexico, has introduced its ‘Colaboracion Nube Privada’ or Private Cloud Collaboration service, based on the Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS).
This new service is part of its ‘Colaboracion Total’ or Total Collaboration business portfolio of products and services that includes voice, video, email, unified messaging, instant messaging, audio and video conferences, work space, enterprise social networks and more.
The company's cloud collaboration includes many different components from Cisco (News - Alert) including its unified communications, mobility and video solutions, and Cisco Customer Collaboration. Additionally a suite of Cisco collaboration applications are integrated by Axtel offering its customers Cisco Jabber, an all-in-one Unified Communications (News - Alert) client that allows users to interact via presence/IM, voice, video, voice messaging and conferencing from any device, and Cisco WebEx, for effective online meetings. The solution allows Axtel to provide end-to-end hosted communications solutions so users can collaborate on any device, anywhere and with any content.
By offering cloud services the company is able to deliver applications in a virtualized platform with a secure and centralized management system.
The Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) is designed to help operators deliver faster service to more people thereby improving the competitive advantage over other service providers.
