The movement to cloud-based IP telephony by businesses of all sizes continues to gain momentum. As enterprises free themselves from the burden of expensive telephony equipment and the need to use IT department resources to manage outbound and inbound call functions, a variety of IP telephony companies continue to pursue solutions to make the delivery of cloud-based telephony options easier and more cost effective.

The company said it had deployed its Mediation Gateway at Wowrack Datacenters, whose customers are now able to host their Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync environment there, accessing a significant variety of on-premise features of Lync in a Cloud environment, including ‘dial-in’ conferencing and inbound/outbound calls using their Lync client.
”We are excited about this partnership because now we can provide an industry-first Cloud based ‘dial-in’ Conferencing and also inbound and outbound calls from Lync for our Customers without any additional hardware requirements on their part,” said Erward Osckar, VP Wowrack, in a company statement.
